In developing the mix series for the blog, Chris and I have been adamant in pursuing anyone and everyone who we feel passionate about and asking them for a recording.
With this in mind, and after his mindblowing (and speaker blowing) set from Unsound which we posted a few months ago, I contacted Ben, on the off chance that some genius might have hit record while he was doing the do.
Ben has been kind enough to offer us a 'mix' of several cuts taken from live performances of his work on the recent tour.
You can really hear Ben's sound developing here. There is something... incredibly intense, vital, visceral about this man's approach to sound design and composition. The album title - 'By the Throat' - is apt. If you haven't heard it, buy the By. But as a prelude to that, and as a work in its own right, we proudly offer this gem. Enjoy. Oh, and trust me - play it LOUD.
