  • Description

    Ben Böhmer announces his debut album ‘Breathing’, out November 22 on Anjunadeep. Berlin based producer and live artist Ben Böhmer has risen through the Anjunadeep ranks to become a breakout star of the past 18 months, amassing almost 40 million streams, picking up a BBC Radio 1 ‘Essential New Tune’, and being included in Billboard’s ‘Ones To Watch’. In addition to running his own fledgling label Tön Töpferei, Ben has put out singles on Anjunadeep and acclaimed remixes for Monolink and Jan Blomqvist, both of whom now feature on Ben’s debut LP.
    Ben’s early releases on tastemaker Berlin labels Bade and Keller drew comparison to revered producers Recondite and Francesco Tristano - dark tracks dotted with classical influence, featuring haunting piano lines and discordant strings. Shortly afterwards, Ben lost a close family member, and both his life and his music changed course. Whilst overcoming this loss, Ben found solace in music. The moody and reflective sounds of Ben’s early work made way for brighter and more melodic music, keeping the depth and texture, but changing the tone from darkness to light. Finding a sense of hope and optimism in uplifting emotions and euphoric melodies, Ben's debut album ‘Breathing’ marks the culmination of a period of heartache and recovery, and a coming of age as an artist. Opening track ‘In Memoriam’ is an emotive tribute, blending powerful strings with ethereal atmospherics and stirring vocal samples. Title track and lead single ‘Breathing’ with collaborators Nils Hoffman and Malou follows. A long-awaited highlight in Ben’s live shows over the past year, 'Breathing' layers Malou’s delicate voice above quirky swung percussion and hard-hitting synths. An avid collaborator, Ben is also joined on the album by two further breakout German stars,
    vocalist Monolink who features on ‘Black Hole’ and multi-instrumentalist Jan Blomqvist who lends his vocals to ‘Decade’. Thought the album Ben explores a range of emotions, from the hopeful ‘Hunting’ with Jonah, to euphoric instrumental ‘Maelstrom’ through to the hard-hitting ‘Wall Of Strings, which samples The Cinematic Orchestra. Alongside the release of ‘Breathing’, Ben will be taking his live show on a world tour during
    the first half of 2020, kicking off with an extensive North American headline tour, before taking in Europe and Australia.
