King Ben - Miracle [Ouïe Circle]

New on Ouïe Circle: King Ben – Miracle

Zurich based King Ben is the pure opposite of a late bloomer – namely an early starter. After watching a DJ play live for the first time at the age of twelve Ben was hooked and invested all the money he had saved in a DJ system.

Quickly he developed a unique groove, performed his first gig at the legendary Sputnik Radio and became Switzerlands’s youngest DJ.

His organic, melodic and yet very reduced sound probably reflects his personality with diverse cultural, creative and musical influences, such as jazz, hiphop or pop. In his studio, the sound tinkerer gets lost in time and experiments for days or weeks on a new track.

Now his efforts are about to pay off: Say hello to King Ben’s first release on Ouïe Circle – the Miracle EP.

Title track Miracle was inspired by certain samples and beats from Ouïe co-labelhead Acid Pauli. The groovy house track filled with uplifting chords and a stirring xylophone sounds builds to an energetic climax, before fading into a soft outro.

„Reduction and groove was very important for me in this track“

says King Ben.

The second track is Tschaggas and retouched by Acid Pauli himself. It’s named after the nickname Ben’s two daughters gave him and is an emotional journey through ambient soundscapes. With deeply layered synths and sparse drums the track is an emotional exploration of the certain hustle and calmness that reflects daily life with his children.
