About Mr. Assister
Quoted from stampthewax.com
"An assister in name and nature, Ben Assiter has been one of the chief enablers in the James Blake machine that has dominated British singer-songwriting in recent years. Drummer of his live band and an ever-present member of their 1-800-Dinosaur collective, Ben has also started make the occasional, yet self-assured step on his own, under the Mr Assister moniker.
‘Bala‘ was the catalyst, a simple yet effective DJ tool that also doubles up as a powerful peak time hip-shaker, employing the same percussion-heavy, African-indebted approach to rhythm that brought O’Flynn and Tom Blip such acclaim last year. He’s been a quiet lad since then, but popped back on our radar recently on a project with Pique-nique Recordings, remixing a traditional Moroccan Gnawa prayer."
