FreshProduce., Red-I & Playne Jayne


It was Christmas night in 2014 when DJ Red-I (Brittany Benton) and Playne Jayne (Samantha Flowers) joined forces to form the hip hop duo FreshProduce. What originally began as a few impromptu ciphers soon became the full-length album We Are FreshProduce., a blend of thought-provoking lyrics paired with lush-soulful beats. In 2015 they released their first single More Like You.

Brittany Benton, Red-I, is a Cleveland-based DJ and producer best known for her distinct genre-bending playing style that fuses hip hop, soul, and reggae.
