Ben Böhmer talks ‘Breathing’ at Anjunadeep Open Air London [Interview]

November 23, 2019


It’s called ‘Breathing’, and it’s my first
album, it’s my debut album. One track is actually six years old, and some
of them are quite new, and I only finished them two months ago. Some of them one year
ago, so it’s a wide range actually! But yeah, it’s been a long long time, yeah. Yeah, there should be a story in this album,
and sometimes I was searching for something to fit the gaps to get to the whole point,
to create everything, to make it more like a ‘full album’ with every side I produce. I was working with Monolink, we wrote the
track ‘Black Hole’; with Jan Blomqvist, also with my good friend Wood from Göttingen,
a good friend of my label Ton Töpferei. We made the track ‘Voyager 1’, which is actually
two years old and is finally coming out. It was actually on my first Anjunadeep Edition! And of course, ‘Breathing’ with Malou and
Nils Hoffmann. Plus Margret! I made a lot of vocal tracks
with her… Yeah, there are many of my friends who are
part of the album, which is nice! I had the feeling that it [‘Breathing’] could be a track which many people liked because of the wonderful topline by Malou.
It’s a wonderful vocal; a wonderful melody and it catches the listener directly. That
was the case with me, so I thought that many people could feel the emotion of this track,
but I didn’t think that so many people would be asking about that, yeah, that was a surprise! Often, if there’s a vocal track, the vocal
is suddenly the main theme and then it’s difficult to write an instrumental theme. If I have
an instrumental track, there’s mostly an instrumental theme, like a synthesizer or a strong riff,
which replaces the vocal. I was always a big fan of doing vocal tracks,
but some of the vocal tracks like ‘Hunting’ or ‘Black Hole’ or ‘Decade’ with Jan Blomqvist, or even ‘Breathing’; they have a long vocal part in them, and usually I like small vocal parts in my tracks, so this has been the main difference. But anyway, there are still a few other tracks
like the instrumental tracks which should sound like the ‘typical Ben’…

    I noticed the short lenghts of some tracks. I'm afraid of this album consisting mainly of radio edits rather than full extended tracks

    @Anjunadeep:
    still waiting for the re-upload of the Anjunadeep Open Air London 2019 Ben Böhmer set. I do not particularly appreciate that you first upload the set to take it down shortly after… we're humans and not laboratory rats.
