German Electronic music’s brightest rising star, 30-year old Berlin based producer and live act Ben Böhmer continues from strength to strength. His sophomore album ‘Begin Again’, released on Anjunadeep in 2021, has since attained over 135 million streams.
In support of the album Ben embarked on a 75,000 ticket headline tour in 2022. All dates were sold out months in advance and included marquee performances at Brixton Academy and The Roundhouse in London, UFO in Berlin, The Fonda Theatre, LA and Brooklyn Steel in New York.
He followed the tour up with a string of high profile festival performances including Glastonbury, Primavera, Sziget, Lost Village, EDC and Life Is Beautiful and this Autumn debuted his Portraet series in the US for the first time following a successful launch in Ibiza last summer. The series saw him headline sold out shows at iconic venues such as The Shrine in LA and Brooklyn Mirage in NY where he was supported by the likes of TSHA and Barry Can’t Swim.
This past October he made a triumphant return musically with the anthemic ‘One Last Call’ – His first original song since the release of ‘Begin Again’. This single also marked a move to Ninja Tune where Ben now sits alongside a multitude of other acclaimed Electronic producers including Bonobo and Odesza.
