New Signing: Electronica whiz kid, Raffertie, joins Ninja Tune
Ninja Tune have announced they will be signing DJ and electronica prodigy Benjamin Stefanski aka Raffertie, with an album due in early 2012.
Raffertie makes cutting edge music for the dancefloor that can’t really be labelled with any one particular genre. His early singles for labels like On The Brink and Planet Mu were a mix of breaks, techno, dubstep and rave, all containing huge energy but the depth and sophistication of someone who, as it happens, recently graduated with a degree in Classical Music Composition.
Mary Anne Hobbes first championed Raffertie on her BBC Radio 1 Experimental show in 2008. Not just an innovatiove producer, Raffertie also has a reputation for performances filled with his typical dynamic energy that has seen him play across Europe; from Fabric to Space, Ibiza.
Expect big things from this man. Ninja Tune have indicated they will relase his first album early next year, promising a progression in style from Raffertie which displays newfound maturity whilst keeping all the nuances and character that have brought him thus far.
