Pink Siifu & Turich Benjy by Divina Gracia
FEATURING NICK HAKIM, HITECH, VAYDA, BIG RUBE, WIFIGAWD & MORE
Pink Siifu and Turich Benjy released their joint album, It’s Too Quiet…!, via Dynamite Hill in partnership with Equity Distribution. Cincinnati-based ‘trap disco’ innovator Benjy was a key collaborator on Pink Siifu’s critically acclaimed 2022 album GUMBO’!, and proceeded to join Siifu on his ‘4Tha Folks’ US tour in support of the album last year. Now, Benjy and Siifu join forces to collaborate on a full-length project that unleashes the electric chemistry that they first captured on “Bussin (Cold),” the standout track from GUMBO’!.
Preceded by the spontaneous release of the album’s lead single “WYWD” featuring HiTech and Milfie last week, It’s Too Quiet…’! is a dynamic exercise of Siifu and Benjy’s range as artists. Each track serves as its own eclectic piece of the larger album mosaic that spans trap and hip-hop, to R&B and ghettotech courtesy of Detroit trio HiTech.
Every Pink Siifu album is a snapshot of the larger musical community of peers he admires and It’s Too Quiet…’! is no different. The album provides a wider introduction to the sonic palette and world of Cincinnati collective GKFAM, a group of artists including Peso Gordon, VonBeezy, Conquest Tony Burson and Rich Park that first showcased on Siifu’s GUMBO’! and joined him on the ‘4ThaFolks’ tour. It’s Too Quiet…’! also features familiar and new guests to the Siifu ecosphere, with appearances from Nick Hakim, WifiGawd, Vayda, VCR, Lance Skiiwalker, Big Rube, Nelson Bandela, Tyah, Kamilah Dende and more, as well as production from Tony Seltzer, Harry Fraud, Groove, Apollo Rome, HiTech, DJ Harrison, Swarvy and others.

About Pink Siifu:
Pink Siifu, who was raised between Birmingham and Cincinnati, has proven himself as a prolific artist and collaborator, with an extensive and celebrated solo catalog as well as working with artists spanning from The Avalanches and Nick Hakim, to producers like Quelle Chris and Mndsgn. Siifu’s collaborative relationship with Turich Benjy continues a long run releasing full-length joint projects alongside Ahwlee (as B. Cool-Aid, Liv.e and Lord Byron (Kryptonyte), YUNGMORPHEUS (Bag Talk), Fly Anakin (FlySiifu’s) and AKAI SOLO (Black Sand). As a solo artist, Siifu received universal acclaim for his 2018 breakout solo album ensley, and obliterated all expectations on his genre-defying album NEGRO, released in 2020, which the New York Times called “the most fearless album in his vast catalog of equally experimental music.” He’s remained a steadfast musical polymath, impossible to pin down to one genre, sound, or group of peers, instead choosing to do it all and excel, from neo-soul and R&B with B. Cool-Aid’s Leather Blvd. earlier this year, serene guest vocals on tracks with The Avalanches or his noisy guest vocals on Armand Hammer’s rowdy track “Trauma Mic.” The FADER put it best when they described Pink Siifu as “one of the most intriguing musicians in Black music.”

Inspired by Bootsy Collins, Roger Troutman & Michael Jackson; Benjy refers to his own music as “trap disco.” Meshing the sounds of bouncy beats with flamboyant fashion, catchy lingo & electrifying moves over fun, authentic music. Performing as a dancer professionally for 10 years before turning his talents to music production, engineering and now as an emcee. Turich Benjy’s brand “At Least I’m Eating Now (ALIEN)” really represents his individuality in music and fashion.
