Bennu

A 11 track house album (38m 48s) — released April 28th 2017 on Wonderwheel

Wonderwheel Recordings is very proud to present the long awaited debut album "Bennu" by Queens, NY based produced Thor Partridge, aka Thornato. Building up a name for himself over a number of years as a proficient and in-demand remixer, Thor's breakout tune "Gaita Gaita" has been sampled thousands of times by producers all over the world, and has become a certified hit record in South America. A string of remixes and a couple of rare song releases later, Thor's groundbreaking Things Will Change EP was released via Wonderwheel in 2016 garnering massive buzz and record sales, resulting in a European tour that summer, and a Boiler Room performance in the fall.

"Bennu" represents a giant leap forward for Thornato, as he showcases his chops in crafting dancefloor gems from the ground up. 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.
