With over 74,000 hard tickets sold, sold-out shows in four continents, and standout performances at iconic venues including London’s O2 Academy Brixton, UFO Velodrom Berlin, New York’s Brooklyn Mirage, Sydney’s Metro Theatre and NSDM Amsterdam; Ben Böhmer’s ‘Begin Again’ live tour may just be the artist’s biggest accomplishment to date.
Earlier this year, Ben played a brilliant, sold-out show at London’s renowned Roundhouse. The event was entirely filmed by Liam Bream and Paul Bryan, who have previously directed live films for Bonobo, Nils Frahm and Caribou. Anjunadeep now presents both the mixed audio from the performance as a live album, available to stream now on all DSPs, and Liam Bream’s stunning video, premiering on Ben Böhmer’s YouTube channel. Ben’s album ‘Begin Again’ has accumulated over 72M streams across DSPs in just over a year, and has seen Ben reach further into the wider music scene than ever before.
In January, four tracks from the album were reworked by renowned violinist and composer Rob Moose, and subsequently, the album was remixed by some of the most accomplished names in the dance scene, including HAAi, The Blaze and Barry Can’t Swim. A former railway engine turntable, The Roundhouse became a significant venue for the UK’s underground scene in the 70s, hosting shows from iconic bands such as Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Clash, The Doors. In recent years artists like Tycho, Max Cooper and Bicep have performed live at the venue – a significant list, and a testament to Ben Böhmer’s meteoric rise in the music scene.
