Stream Benjamin Damage’s new ‘Swarm’/’Headache’ 12″.
With recent releases from Addison Groove, Dark Sky, Shed, Cosmin TRG and the founders of the imprint, Modeselektor, 50 weapons has become a label associated with cutting edge and consistently diverse productions. The latest release comes from Benjamin Damage, Doc Daneeka‘s partner-in-crime on album, ‘They (Live).’
‘Swarm/Headache’ is a darker affair, distinctly UK techno-inspired compared to the softer output of his Doc Daneeka collaborations. A heavy drum arrangement dominates the A side, which builds violently against pumping bass notes and scaled synths. The flipside is similarly intense, living up to Damage‘s intention to provide a homage to ‘the heyday of techno’.
‘Swarm/Headache’ is out on October 5 on 50 Weapons. Stream below:
