Hitting DSPs on Sept. 29, the project’s pre-released lead single “Elevate” is a fantastic introduction to Benji’s style as an individual performer and producer. Striving to shine as one of the collective’s freshest voices, the 13-track LP features credits from all over the Spillage Village roster.
Complete with visuals, the producer turned rapper spits mellow bars over “Elevate’s”matching instrumental, crooning a repetitive yet soulful hook over piano chords and bass guitar. Switching off between fast-paced flows and a melodic delivery, Smile, You’re Alive showcases his multifaceted nature thoroughly.
After traveling with Earthgang on their “Welcome to Mirrorland” tour, Benji. was invited to join Spillage Village in 2020. He appeared on the collective’s fourth album, Spilligion, contributing vocals on “Shiva” and “Hapi” as well as producing six other songs on the record.
