Interest in the mysterious Bournemouth producer BNJMN is soaring. Following two well received long-players on Rush Hour last year, out of which his sophomore album made it into RA's 'Top 50 Albums of the Year, BNJMN has just been confirmed for Montreal's MUTEK Festival – joining the likes of Shackleton, Jeff Mills and Nicolas Jaar.
