BIJOU – Assassin
Arizona native Ben Dorman has been taking the American scene by storm. After blowing up the scene in Phoenix, Bijou began his conquest of the U.S. With releases on huge labels like Night Bass and Fool’s Gold, Bijou’s hip-hop influenced brand of house is nothing to laugh at. His impressive Ghetto House vibes landed him on the lineup of the current ABC Tour featuring Angelz, Bijou, and Ciszak. And with four more dates left on the tour Bijou has finally released ‘Assassin.’
A self described “big Mortal Kombat fan,” Bijou definitely brings the heat with this track. With vocal samples like “Choose your faction,” “Challenge completed,” and “Assassin defeated,” fans of the 90’s martial arts fantasy series will feel right at home. Although he says ‘Assassin’ “is much different from what I’ve been putting out recently,” it definitely sports a recognizable Bijou feel. The typical four on the floor kick pattern is filled out with a dirty bass line and a synth progression that feels like it is taken straight from Mortal Kombat. The track is unmistakably G-House but feels defiantly unique.
But the best part of this release? Bijou is giving away the track for FREE! Just check out his SoundCloud page and follow the “Stream and Free Download” link. Leave a comment on the track and the track will become available for download! Bijou’s goal with this track is to “really show diversity while staying true to my sound.” And he does so with stunning success, both in the track itself and the way he is releasing it. With some of the biggest festivals in the U.S. under his belt in 2017, who knows what next year holds for one of the biggest names in American G-House. You can listen to “Assassin” below. But you’ll have to check out his SoundCloud page for your free download.
