As the relationship between place and sound becomes ever more ambiguous, there are few cities with a sonic identity as strong as Mannheim. Fronted by a by a small circle of likeminded creatives in the BE9 collective, the Mannheim sound is a melting-pot of funk, hip-hop, house and minimal – wrapped in a tight aesthetic that packs a punch without ever feeling too in-your-face.
At the vanguard of this sound sits Ben Balance. Head-honcho of imprints Yaji Project, Sukhumvit Records and NCSS, Ben has an ear for low-slung minimal house that manages to be as effortlessly timeless as it is in-vogue. Both his solo releases and his work as one half of the Ho Do Ri moniker alongside close friend Fabe have rightfully earnt a permanent spot in the record bags of many of the circuits leading tastemakers. This is seriously versatile music with universal club-appeal.
With a veteran’s ear for floor-focussed sounds, Ben Balance makes his way Down Under with a collection that digs as wide as it does deep. A fierce selector with an undeniable knack for groove-centric rhythms, we are incredibly excited to hear Ben take charge this April Long Weekend.
