Late night tales

Discover Ben's mysterious, trippy world.

Ben Khan is a musician, songwriter and producer based in London. He launched his first EP "1992" where hip hop and electronic beats meet some bluesy guitar riffs. Listen to "Savage" below.

In his videos, he creates a new storyline with existing images, scenes from various movies and ads that have been carefully selected in the aim to communicate a very specific moment in a song. The videos are striking, sometimes disturbing. They are evocative and at the same time ambiguous. They intrigue our mind and lead our imagination to something new which I find quite original and refreshing.


I discovered Nick Monaco through the DJ duo Soul Clap. Listening to Nick Monaco is like tasting a strange looking smoothie, something that would contains both spinach and strawberry. His music is a mix of genre, hard to summarize, from r'n'b to dub, from disco to funk, all under the vast universe of dance music. The way he uses his voice is interesting, experimenting with different tones.
Here's a wonderful acoustic version of the track "Private Practice" from his debut album "Mating Call":

I like how this song slowly builds up with the raggae rythm accompanied with a sensual voice that somehow reminds me of Prince. To listen while smoking a joint:
