Say Yes | BNJMN【Tresor, Rush Hour, Delsin】
March 22nd @ Elevator Shanghai

British producer BNJMN ( aka Ben Thomas) made a strong impression on the electronic-music landscape. Having released on such acclaimed labels as Delsin, Tresor and Rush Hour it’s clear BNJMN has a knack for making music that stands out and at the same time works on the floor.

He started out under different monikers producing Downbeat and Hip Hop beats before turning to Techno, citing Efdemin and Theo Parrish as two core influences. BNJMN doesn’t show any signs of stopping. After refining his sound year on year since his debut breakthrough album in 2011, he wound up on XLR8R's list of 2011's Best New Artists, which is why they invited him to put together an exclusive mix for their podcast series.

After refining his sound year on year since his debut breakthrough album in 2011, the discography of the Berlin-based Brit continues to evolve; never staying the same and continuing to surprise. In 2017 a double release on Tresor, solo 12’s on new imprint Tiercel and podcasts lined up for the likes of Smoke Machine and Groove surely set the stage to showcase who and what BNJMN has become.

He is fast becoming known as one of the most unique DJ’s on the scene – seamlessly blending ambient, hypnotic, sci-fi Techno and beyond, all with the signature BNJMN sonic vision.

英国制作人BNJMN( 读本杰明, 全名 本 托马斯) 短短7年间, 在Tresor, Rush Hour和Delsin这些饱受赞誉的厂牌发表了超过20多个发行,如此丰富的产量,让他的名字在电子音乐的版图上留下了深入人心, 难以小视的重要一笔。和许多Techno制作人的职业生涯类似, 始于Downbeat 和 Hip Hop制作, 但在受到Efdemin和Theo Parrish的深深影响后就毫不犹豫地转投Tehcno战线, 此后便一发不可收拾。

他就像一部没有刹车功能的越野车, 在沙漠上疯狂驰骋,没人能拦得住。2011年, 他收获了很多重要突破, 发行得到业界权威的认可和一致好评。XLR8R将他放入最佳新人名单,并邀请他参与podcast的独家混音。常驻柏林期间不断带来惊喜: 2017年,他在传奇老字号厂牌Tresor和自己新成立的厂牌Tiercel均有重要发行推出, oove Magazine和Smoke Machine也要请他参与Podcast分享。

其实Tiercle并不是他首次成立厂牌。2015年他曾创立On Brack并发表作品, 但感到厂牌已经被固定在某种具化的特殊风格上, 而这种风格经过尝试, 他感到无法再重新创作出来, 所以最后决定重新成立一个新厂牌。

毋庸置疑, 他是近几年电音界, 发展势头劲猛, 迅速广为人知, 最为特别的DJ之一: 一人同时驾驭氛围音乐, 科幻Techno多种风格为标签。对, 又是科幻,Say Yes 春天主题就是要科幻, 梦幻, 所以又连续性地带来这样一位与Matrixxman有异曲同工之妙的艺术家。
