Benjamin Damage (LIVE)

Saturday - The Warehouse

His music may sound like a futuristic transmission of sub bass and fractured kick drums, but Benjamin Damage is also a proud flagbearer for the UK’s dance music history. As one of the main artists on Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons label (along with his releases on the legendary R&S Records), Benjamin has developed a unique sound that owes as much to the latest strains of thumping Berlin techno as it does to the rave stabs of early hardcore. His live show, which he’ll be bringing to Junction 2 for the first time, is an encapsulation of these elements, so even when he’s playing pristine arctic synths there’s still a dangerous undertow of grimey hiss.
