Ben La Desh (Let’s Play House - NL) @ The Observatory

 Another name intricately tied with the renaissance of House that has occurred in Europe over the last few years is hitting the docks to show us where the apex of the genre stands today.

Holland-based BEN LA DESH’s roots in Africa have infused his productions and sets with a coat of tropical attitude that makes for a simply irresistible sound cocktail. With releases on some major labels in Europe such as Let’s Play House, Outernational Recordings and Sleazy Beats Black Ops, you can be sure that this evening will be packing a serious sonic punch. 

Ethereal, subtle vocals - which your brain doesn’t even fully distinguish from the broader depth-charged soundscape he brings to his tracks - are just a tiny piece of the audio delicacy that his sound provides. Jazzy, undulating and truly mesmeric, his sets are designed to simultaneously hypnotize and energize the audience with relentless synths and booming bass lines.

Full House.

BIO Ben La Desh

Rotterdam (NL) based Ben La Desh’s first contact with music and rhythm was during his youth in Africa. Now, years later, after teenage times spent toying with computers and exploring his taste, Ben La Desh’s sound is a tropical and humid fusion of moody disco and deep house.This perfectionist’s first release came in 2011 on Outernational, followed by a solo EP on Sleazy Beats Black Ops entitled Stop That Groove Girl, this first EP went straight to number one in Juno’s sales chart and stayed there for a number of weeks.

Off the back of that he continued to rise steadily through the ranks clocking up more fine releases on labels like Dirt Crew,Young Adults and releasing remixes for the likes of 6th Borough Project’s Borough 2 Borough LP (Delusions of Grandeur) and Urulu on Let’s Play House. Support continues to flood in for his infectious and heartwarming sounds, including tastemakers like Session Victim, The Revenge, Jimpster, Eddie C, Norm de Plume and more.
