It began with the raw energy fueled 'Maximum Carnage' mixtapes with DJ Venom, mixing up Bassline/Niche rhythms with the emerging UK Funky sound. Following this was the insanely catchy 'Deeper' for Doc Daneeka's Ten Thousand Yen label which was perhaps the true beginning of the 'Deep Rave' sound. Following the success of Deeper came the brilliantly diverse 4 track solo EP 'Antidote'. Featuring h...aunting melodies, intricate rhythms and vicious bass Read more on Last.fm

New live setup

Yamaha GX-1, the best and most expensive polysynth of all time.
36 different voice cards, each essentially a full monosynth with all discrete components, 3 keyboards, bass pedals, sound system, programmer, patch memory and built-in analogue drum machine. Very few exist in fully working condition.
Now the dust has settled I’d like to say something about the Printworks London PLAYdifferently show on Sunday. Up until Sunday I’d had a great week - I played on Thursday in London for the DJ mag / Coma live stream, a secret underground party in Stockholm on Friday and at the truly special BLITZ Music Club in Munich on Saturday, which went on until nearly 8am.
On Sunday morning I had to leave pretty much straight from the club to catch the British Airways flight from Munich, scheduled to arrive in London at 14:00. The departure time kept moving forward due to snow related delays: 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, eventually departing 3 1/2 hours late. I agreed with the promoter to swap sets with Rebekah and for Room 2 to be extended by an hour so that I would be able to play.
As we got near London the pilot announced that due to further snow delays at Heathrow it was not possible to land anywhere in London and we were being diverted to Leeds. This was a huge shock and disappointment to me. I was looking forward to this show for months and really excited to play there.
After landing in Leeds we were forced to wait a further 3.5 hours before we could even depart the plane due to lack of ground staff. We were then told all hotels were full and we had to make our own way back to London, which meant getting an almost 4 hour Uber ride.
I feel awful about not being able to play, and I’m sure Richie Hawtin and Chris Liebing do too. All options were looked at, but ultimately there was absolutely no possible way to get there.
This is the first show I have ever missed and I’m really sad about it. Printworks is an incredible venue and I’m sorry for everyone who was disappointed we could not make it. I hope all who went still had a great time and many thanks to all the wonderful DJs who extended their sets.
Very excited to sign to the legendary R&S Records. Took a little bit of time to get back into making music after 50 Weapons but finally releasing my first EP in two years on October 27th... https://benjamindamage.bandcamp.com
