Originally a drummer by trade, Ben 'Mr Assister' Assiter starting moving into the world of production with his 2014 release on 1-800-Dinosaur, the London based label of which he is a founding member. Since then, he has devoted more and more time to DJing, co-running the successful NASA (formerly 0800 DINOSAUR) monthly party with Dan Foat and Frank Tope, and touring America with the 1-800 Dinosaur crew. In February this year, Mr Assister was asked to remix 'Toura Toura' by New York-based group Innov Gnawa and his heavyweight offering was subqsequently premiered by The Ransom Note. To coincide with this release of this remix, Mr Assister also recorded a percussion-heavy mix for online magazine, Stamp The Wax, featuring 'Izma' from this release.

'Izma / Arland Rain' marks the inaugural release on Mr Assister's brand new label, BEAM. Though these tracks demonstrate a new exploration of slower tempos for Mr A, there is a sense of continuity in the percussive quality of the music, as well as its emphasis on lo-fi vinyl samples. 'Izma' has had several airings on James Blake's residency on BBC Radio 1, while 'Arland Rain' was recently premiered on Bradley Zero's Rhythm Section show on NTS radio.
