Not a huge amount is known about Dosage. He’s a 19 year old producer called Ben Swanwick and he’s from Leeds via Watford, but beyond this details are murky. He claims on his Facebook page to originally hail from the small town of Anus outside Paris but, given that the only two milestones recorded on said page are ‘Did a poo’ and ‘Drunk some tea’ (both in 2012, in case you were wondering), one suspects this information may not be 100% accurate.
Regardless, ‘Bring It Back’ shows the boy’s got talent. XLR8R picked up on it this week and are giving it away as a free download here. Its combination of brutal percussion and driving melody call to mind the mighty Disclosure, and there’s enough sonic weirdness to suggest that young Ben has the potential to achieve a lot more than the odd bit of tea-drinking and poo-doing.
