gallery_stage_07_mt_cam01_549

Here’s the video for Benjamin Damage’s single “Pulse Width,” directed by Konx-om-Pax & Michael Tan (premiered on XLR8R). The video also includes exclusive album art created by Stefan Endress. The track is taken from ‘Obsidian’.

‘Obsidian’ marks the third album from Benjamin Damage (his second solo long-player) and the end of an era for both himself and 50WEAPONS. As the first artist (outside of Modeselektor) to release on the label it’s apt that this album is also the last one on 50WEAPONS. You can pre-order your copy of Obsidian right now by visiting Monkeytown website, and “Pulse Width” is now available for immediate download when pre-ordering the album on iTunes.

Video: Phon.o – HereNow feat. Bass Sekolah

One of our favourite producers, Phon.o, has just shared the video for "HereNow", taken from his excellent Cracking Space Pt. 1 EP for Modeselektor’s 50Weapons label. The track features the vocals of Bass Sekolah. In case you missed it, check out the video for the EP’s closing cut, Moonwalk, here.

Phon.o – Cracking Space Pt. 1 EP [2014]

With his new EP Phon.o continues his quest into the deeper zones of club music. Combining influences from UK House, Garage and Berlin Techno he manages to further define his very own sound. Featuring guest appearances from Malaysian duo Bass Sekolah on the hymnic “Here now” and additional keyboards from San Franciscan mastermind Joshua Kit Clayton on the more introverted “Moonwalk”, this record has a strong narrative that manages to work on the dancefloor as well as on the home stereo. Or, simply speaking: for girls and boys.

Out March 28 via Modeselektor’s 50Weapons.
