Benjamin Damage’s roots lie firmly within the UK’s underground techno sound. 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 saw releases with Belgium’s R&S Records, working through two EPs to date. He is currently working on a new album..
Benjamin was part of last year’s huge Sonar anniversary and continues his relationship with the influential festival across their Colombia, Iceland and Hong Kong editions. He’s also been a key part of the Red Bull Music Academy’s residency in Berlin. Now establishing himself as a true live act, and with the latest EP’s lead track ‘Malfunction’ being highly critiqued by tastemakers such as RA and Groove, it feels like Benjamin’s time is coming.
2019 sees Benjamin releasing on the infamous techno imprint Figure, and recently completed a collaboration with Bicep and various remixes throughout the year.
