Benjamin Bates second album is a personal document that successfully evokes a variety of moods, ranging from ecstasy on the first single 'On My Feet', melancholy in opening track 'Note To Self #1' and desperation in 'Forever Running'. He wrote, arranged, played, sang, produced and mixed the entire album himself with his production partner Marco V.
The title of the album refers to the habit of recycling music. Nowadays, many dance hits are based on samples of old hit singles.
Recyclomania echoes the music from Bates' youth: electronic synthesizer pop, trance, 80's pop, house and even punk. Even though it's still electronically produced dance music, it's far from your typical club album. Pop structures are blended with dance influences in such a way that the songs appeals to both die-hard dance fans and lovers of pop music "There were no limitations for this album. Dance is originally a genre that brings people together, but it seems to have become more narrow-minded. In that respect, the genre could learn a lot from the rock world, which is more open-minded towards other musical genres."
