2019 is already panning out to be a very busy one for Benjamin Damage. With his January schedule incorporating sets across numerous countries, he makes his way back to London on Friday 1st February for LWE’s inaugural event of the year. Ben joins our residents Dense & Pika plus special guests Tijana T and Dysart for an all-night session of “brilliantly crafted club bangers” (RA) at Shoreditch’s dance culture hub Village Underground.
As we look forward to this showcase of the hottest techno acts around, we focus on Ben’s live show and why it’s a performance that will blow away any of those January blues…
Benjamin Damage is one of those DJs that never stops traveling. Dividing his touring schedule between the most iconic underground venues across the globe and countries with burgeoning underground scenes, the UK born, Berlin resident, has witnessed it all and is on a rapid surge to the top. His set at Sonár 2018 is evidence of this. He’s on a roll and there’s no way of stopping him…
After a fruitful year releasing tracks ‘Malfunction’ and ‘Binary’, Benjamin has gained tremendous momentum as an outstanding producer. His studio efforts now call R&S Records home and he looks forwards to his imminent release of his new album on the iconic imprint this year. Regarding the album, the artist stated that it “picks up where his last EP left off – pistoning rhythms, break neck beats and monolithic bass”. We’re excited to hear what he has in store for us all…
Benjamin Damage doesn’t fall short in live sets either. ‘Heliosphere’, the DJs cold tremored techno album was celebrated with a series of outstanding and mind-bending live shows. Within it, the DJ took a bold approach seeing him ditch his stage laptop for ultra-live spinning of his tracks. His performances stun audiences every time, whether they have seen him play before or not. He definitely has more than a few tricks up his sleeve, as he jostlingly ravages crowds with all sorts of hardware and daring sounds. His impromptu track for FACT’s ‘Against the Clock’ is one we still cannot get our heads around.
This night will see Benjamin perform for the first time ever at the brick warehouse Village Underground. As the techno DJ introduces his soundscapes to the venue for the first time, this will surely be an unforgettable showdown.
We cannot wait to see what is to come from his set, alongside other innovative techno artists like Dense & Pika and Tijana T. Grab yourself a ticket and experience an assault of the senses on Friday 1st February.
