Ben Rau’s dancefloor influence has spread far and wide during his sensational career behind the decks.
Equipped with a raver’s passion, Ben Rau has earned a dedicated fanbase through his impeccable productions, which often lean toward funky strains minimal house and techno. He continues to push his heady clubland agenda through releases like Système Solaire, Marauder, and his highly popular Out There EP. And his cunning intuition behind the decks has helped carry him to clubs and festivals the world over — he played Glastonbury, Free Your Mind Festival and Konnect Festival this year alone.
In a candid conversation with our host Tigerlight, Rau discusses how he finds the time to manage his labels Inkal and Meta, the importance of meditation and mental health, his production strategies, and vocal experimentation, and why ghostwriting has become so prevalent in the industry.
