Berlin-based producer Ben Böhmer has risen through the Anjunadeep ranks over the last 18 months, surpassing over 40 million streams with no signs of slowing down. He’s gotten BBC Radio 1 support from the likes of Pete Tong and Annie Mac and has been featured in Billboard’s ‘Ones To Watch’ catalog. His previous singles have been used in acclaimed remixes from Monolink and Jan Blomqvist as well, both of whom are now featured in this debut LP Breathing.
Breathing marks the closing of a chapter in Ben’s life. The moody and reflective sounds of his early work paved the way for brighter, more melodic music. This album, thus, reflects both the light and the dark. Throughout the LP, Ben explores a range of emotion that shares his journey through periods of heartache and recovery.
The opening track ‘In Memoriam’ is an emotive tribute, blending powerful strings with stirring vocal samples. The title track and lead single ‘Breathing’ follows. This one has been a long-awaited release as it’s been a major highlight in Ben’s live shows. It layers Malou’s delicate voice above deep percussion and hard-hitting synths. From the hopeful ‘Hunting’ with Jonah to the powerful ‘Wall Of Strings’ sampling Cinematic Orchestra, Breathing takes you on a melodic journey that will leave you breathless, no pun intended.
