Rems, Jehnova & SELLO join The Playground Sessions

Words: Dylan Murphy

The trio feature in the first episode of the new series which sees artists create songs from scratch before performing the final product.

Irish based record label Diffusion Lab recently moved into their new home in Dublin, The Playground. The creative space and studio houses their resident producer Benza and he has launched his new series from its confines named ‘The Playground Sessions’. It sees local artists join forces with the experienced songwriter and producer to create tracks from scratch in a three hour window before they perform the song.

In the past, Benza has collaborated with Hare Squead, Super Silly, Jafaris and Soulé amongst others. Following a similar path to that of Kenny Beats’ ‘The Cave’ series, The Playground Sessions takes an organic approach to crafting a track and sometimes inadvertently takes acts out of their usual lane in a way that feels natural.

The first edition of the biweekly episodes features Nuxsense rappers Jehnova and Rems and Dublin’s SELLO.
