Benny’s approach is built around maximising the potential of his kick, snare and hi-hat, like the drummers of Motown who laid down their grooves for the dance floor.
"I listen to some of that stuff and the rhythms are not that hard, they are pretty simple, but if you follow these basic recipes for their rhythms you can create so much action inside of it.
"That’s why I feel that my parts aren’t particularly difficult to play but they are difficult to write. I don’t think a lot of people write like that anymore, with those four-on-the-floor beats and doing things with a repetitive kick drum pattern in the middle of a beat just to give it that extra dance element.
"That’s definitely something I try to do."
