The new year has just begun, and the reign of recycled music from producers and artists is soon to end. The new year promises new sounds, and Chicago-based producer Bentley Dean (full name Alex Bentley Dean) continues his legacy on the mau5trap label with his latest original, “Coagulation," out now on We Are Friends Vol. 8.
The first contribution from Bentley Dean took place last year on We Are Friends Vol. 7. The track was a remix of infamous DJ/producer BlackGummy's original track "KT." Delivering a bone-chilling buildup the remix became one of the biggest techno anthems of the year. The remix was so successful that not only did it peak at #1 on the iTunes Dance chart but also left an lasting impression on the label's founder, deadmau5.
Bentley Dean was born in the U.K. and has quickly started to land his music on the map in the United States ever since he moved to Chicago, Illinois. His impressive releases allowed him to land bookings at Chicago's own North Coast Music Festival and Spring Awakening Festival.
