On his last night in NY, me and Christian (that’s sbthemoor's real name, FYI) sat in a pizza joint in Brooklyn and talked about the future.
I told him I was confident and positive but also afraid, as this new vinyl was Juicy’s biggest investment ever, and if things went really bad it could compromise everything for us. Christian was understanding but had an uncompromised look on his face. That look, that genuine rock solid self-belief, gave me the final push I needed to make this record happen.
After all, working with art, especially music, is about long shots, extra miles, and believing in the quality of what you are putting out.
Almost six months later, the record is out, and I have cuts on my lips from biting sellotape to seal pre-order packages. Opus 3 – Man Atop the Tower was our most pre-ordered release ever, the snippet we put on Soundcloud reached 1000+ plays, and things are looking good.
Huge THANK YOU to the people from US, UK, Germany, France, Australia, Sweden, Brazil and Portugal that put their trust (and money) in us, and all the other cool people who in the meantime have put down an order too. We love you and we hope you'll love the record as much as we do.
BUT there’s still a long way to go, and we really wanna sell the shit out of this 1st press, so this email is also a call for help. Tell about Benedick’s music to your friends, share the links on your social media, write about it on your blog, make a giant banner and hire a plane to go around your city…
We’re a strictly and ethically independent DIY label, we don’t have press and PR teams, we don’t have distribution deals. We rely on people like us - music fans - who truly care and support the artists they love.
If you have friends who run music websites/magazines, tell them to get in touch and we’ll hook them up with a digital/physical promo for review.
And here's the full stream of the album, we figured it was about time:

What do you do when your new record is not done in time for the artist's tour? You innovate.
So we came up with these pre-order cards, which you can buy on the gigs, directly from the man himself, with a customized code that he'll write down for you on the spot. That code, once entered on the checkout of our webstore, reduces your payment to zero (cause you already paid, duh!) and your record ships along the rest of the pre-orders.
Simple ideas, that's what we're about. Signor Benedick The Moor is currently touring the West Coast, more details on dates here.

A timeless story that has never been told, an exploration of intricate emotional depths in characters that will stay with you long after listening.
Signor Benedick The Moor delivers his most immersive and compelling work to date, in this new 12” LP that ventures into a new universe beyond his critically acclaimed debut album El Negro but still as charismatic and genre-breaking as ever.
With the artist delivering production, rhymes and artwork into a single conceptual piece - with a little help from Jonathan Snipes (of clipping. fame) and Thomas Dimuzio on mixing and mastering respectively – this is Benedick’s great opera in form of a record, a mature third opus in a very recent but already impressive body of work that yet stands out on its own and shows an evolution in songwriting and production style.
Call if fringe rap, punk rap, left field, experimental madness…Signor Benedick The Moor is a force to be reckoned with, sonically groundbreaking, acting without aesthetical constrainers.
Celebrating Juicy Records’ return to vinyl releases, we proudly present our most detailed record to date: a 140g vinyl record in “frosted” clear colour, complete with original artwork on both outside jacket cover and inner sleeve. Detailed lyrics insert sheet and digital download card included inside.
Here's a video interview shot in a nice but windy rooftop in New York back in June, where Benny finally took time to answer questions sent by fans and talk about the new record. Thanks to Robert for being such a cool guy with the such a beautiful dog.

Penafiel welcomed us with open arms and we could not have wished for a better event to celebrate the re-edition of Nuno's book.
Thanks to everyone who came to hangout and showed us love. This book was made for all the people who were left without a copy the first time, and it felt good to see that even 3 years later those people didn't give up on us.
You can still order the book here , and bundle pack of book + limited edition t-shirt here .
