Benjamin Philippe Zulauf

(Hummingbird, OHM Series, Fourier Transform/UK)

This story begins in early 97 when a fledgling producer purchased his first bits of studio gear with a Roland MC-303 and a Juno 106, spending every free moment creating drum loops, basses and soulful pads. Influenced by the underground sounds coming out of Detroit, Chicago and London, the Melbourne based Swiss/British/Aussie producer began a lifelong love affair and obsession with electronic music.

His musical directions cross over into many genres, flexing between house and techno and meandering into breakbeat, acid and electro. The journey you take is always important during a DJ set or studio session, where it starts isn't necessarily a sign of how it may end but its important that it always leaves you with an emotional impression...life was never meant to be boring. Holding down residencies across the globe over the years is proof of this, with Kronic (Melbourne/AUS), Shove (Neuchatel/SUI), Hummingbird (Berlin/GER) and Emotional Content (Leeds/UK).
