It is said that the very first instrument mankind ever used was a drum. The repetitive beat of the primitive instrument was used in tribal ceremonies, to celebrate, bringing tribe members together and unifying their consciousness. Meanwhile the emotive responses that stem from classical compositions and string instruments are more closely connected with European ancestry. German and Ghanaian DNA Ben Rau who will be guest DJ for Wet Sessions at W Kuala Lumpur this 3 August is blessed with the best of both cultures and the combination of influences from his forefathers permeates into his music.
Infectious rhythmic grooves and emotive melodies mix together to form a rich, deep and hypnotic formula that speaks to your very soul. Ben originally fell in love with house and techno simply because he wanted to lose himself in the music and explore his deep-seated passion for music through self-expression - namely, raving. Ben spent many years tearing up dancefloors back home in Germany and in the UK, too. As time went on he became more and more involved behind the scenes, progressing from the dancefloor to the decks and into the studio.
