BEN BÖHMER PERFORMS LIVE ABOARD HOT AIR BALLOON OVER UNESCO SITE
Ben Böhmer aboard hot air balloon – that’s all you need to know. All the way from Berlin – producer and live artist Ben Böhmer returns to Anjunadeep after a landmark 18 months. Already curating 50 million streams and picking up BBC Radio 1 support from Annie Mac and Pete Tong. Also, including an ‘Essential New Tune’ being featured in Billboard’s ‘Ones To Watch’ – most notably releasing his acclaimed debut studio album, ‘Breathing’ this past November. This year, Böhmer has released ‘Breathing’ (Remixed) LP which features reworks from dance music royalty like Boris Brechja and Gui Boratto – along with first-ever live album, ‘Live from Printworks London’. Now, Böhmer follows with the statement three-track, ‘Phases EP’.
A set of exuberant and unapologetically club – ready tracks, the ‘Phases EP’ is almost nostalgic inspired of a more innocent and celebratory time.
“With the lockdowns and club closures still in effect across the world, the ‘Phases EP’ is a kind of weird reminder of a lost world, of what once was. I made the music to sound great in big clubs to a big crowd late at night. In fact, I debuted two of the tracks in my Printworks set last year. Now that’s all gone, and that time seems a world away’. A set of exuberant and unapologetically club-ready tracks, the ‘Phases EP’ is an almost nostalgic evocation of a more innocent and celebratory time”. – Ben Böhmer
Title track, ‘Phases’, a highly sought after ID throughout Ben’s sets from the past 12 months sees him team up with the mainstay of Anjuna – Spencer Brown – for their second collaborative production. The EP follows with a pair of certified dance floor moments, ‘Motherboard’ adrift with vocal loops and driving bass and ‘Zeit & Raum’ a staccato brass-laden number.
Passionate about both abstract art and photography, Böhmer is using a piece by artist Tyrone Williams for the cover art of the ‘Phases EP’.
‘Whenever I travel, I love to visit museums. But there’s no travel now, and all of the museums are closed. It’s a different world’. – Ben Böhmer
BEN BÖHMER PERFORMS LIVE ABOARD HOT AIR BALLOON OVER UNESCO SITE

 

Monday, August 31st – Cercle teams up with Ben Böhmer for an exceptional show on a hot air balloon that will fly over Cappadocia, Turkey – recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site with @Goturkey support. For the occasion and in order to have as little wind as possible, the live set will take place at sunrise. Ben Böhmer will play several exclusive tracks – including ‘Cappadocia’ – produced especially for the occasion which will be released in a few weeks on the brand new label: Cercle Records. If both the technical and meteorological needs are met, this show (without an audience) will be broadcasted live on Cercle Monday, August 21st, at 5am UTC +2 (Paris Time).
When Ben’s not working on music in his newly-built home studio, he’s occupying himself with games of chess and long walks throughout a nearby forest – living the quiet existence we’re all getting used to as the new ‘normal’ – waiting for the world to bloom again.
