Why do we like this?
These three are on the verge of exploding the scene with British Afro-dub blues -- they're seriously something special.

Benin City is London-based Theo Buckingham, Tom Leaper, and Joshua Idehen. An eclectic band named after a Nigerian capital, their verse is persuasive, their drums powerful and their sax energizing. This is hip-hop rich with rock'n'roll, with all the originality of James Blake or radicalness of WU LYF when each respectively burst onto the blogosphere.

It's no surprise the Huffington Post called them "one of the UK's most exciting new bands" and people are tweeting things like "Genuinely the best song I've heard all year." I'm 100% on board with that. The repeated rhythm in "My Love" should be enough to make anyone swoon into admiration.

I'm sure their debut, Fires In The Park, will wreak havoc -- perhaps even literally starting fires in parks like London Fields. We'll see. Until then, you can download this track, with its remixes, on their website. Don't miss the lo-fi handheld music video by Hackney-based artist Charlie Behrens. Some bewitching visuals along Regent's Canal.
