BOOM. The much-anticipated debut full length from Thornato is here! Bennu finds Queens-based producer Thor Partridge (aka Thornato) doing it big with an eclectic, dancefloor-centric album that brings many diverse styles together as one. His experience as an in-demand remix producer shines as Thor is able to craft potent floor workers from the ground up with a hand-selected roster of global guest artists that take the tracks to the next level. From Wonderwheel - "While the electronic production of the album provides a strong backbone, Thor has carefully selected artists from Jamaica, Ecuador, South Africa, Colombia, Canada and beyond to breathe live energy into each song. From the massive bass driven energetic dancehall vibes of “Rhinoceros” featuring veteran chat master Gappy Ranks, to earth shattering chopped up African dancefloor sounds of “Chagamei” to the contemplative Flamenco influenced deep house sound of “Welwyn”, and moving into the uplifting & soulful dembow vibes of “Tu Luz” featuring Lido Pimentia – Bennu is an album that carefully navigates through the globe while maintaining a cohesive and consistent feel from start to finish."
