R&R / UNITED KINGDOM
Benjamin Damage's roots lie firmly within the UK's underground. Drawing from early rave to jungle to nineties house, Benjamin's non-purist approach to techno produces an energy and emotion rarely found in modern electronic music.
Being the first artist signed to Modeselektor's 50 Weapons imprint, Damage initially made his mark with a series of pivotal releases on the label. 2018 sees his musical direction move to a new label home as he tightens the knot with Belgium's R&S Records, working through two EPs to date with an album in 2019.
Benjamin is fresh off the back of a huge Sonar anniversary live performance; a very special forthcoming collaboration (yet to be announced); and was a key part of the Red Bull Music Academy's residency in Berlin. Now establishing himself as a true live act, and with the recent EP's lead track 'Malfunction' being highly critiqued by tastemakers such as RA and Groove, it feels like Benjamin's time is coming.
