Local brings the noise

Local kid made good Ben Kelly, aka Benny Electric, may well have co-produced one of the hit remixes of the year.

The son of Lismore jazz legend Jim Kelly and a Southern Cross University music production graduate, Ben is also one half of Brisbane duo Silver Sneakerz.

Their remix of an Oz- rock anthem of the 80s, Noiseworks' Touch, is currently sitting at Number 5 on the ARIA Top 50 Club Charts.

The group's record label, Ministry of Sound Australia, flew Silver Sneakerz to Sydney to meet Jon Stevens, Noiseworks' frontman, and re-record the track, which is going gangbusters on iTunes.
