White Sand Beach

Oh Fuck Feah !

Diamonds Light

I'm In Venus With Love

Second LP exploring themes of loss, mourning, heartbreaks but also the feeling of freedom once the pain is gone.

Musically the songs are edging towards a new wave and cold electro touch with a strong pop core. This ensemble is composed as if the songs were remixed as we are listening to them.

All songs are written and composed by Benjamin.

"Nothing Changes" written by Palma Crual and Benjamin, composed by Benjamin.

SAMPLER

Songs fom the SAMPLER project which is about quotes and reappropriation in pop culture. In order to explore this thematic Benjamin creates every material based on the idea of reappropriation.

For example some lyrics are quotes of Richard Hamilton, or quotes from the previous song. The music is made the same way : even if the songs are specially composed for this project, each one is made based on a sample from the material preceding it.

Unoriginal Pop Songs

First LP of Benjamin regrouping pop and dance songs about love, sex and club party. 

Synths are all over the place, with dance beats and tongue-in-a cheek voice.

This album is like a candy box in which you can chose the flavour you like. From the 80s synthpop song "Like A Slut" to the experimental "Narciss Bitch" there is a spectrum of other styles such as new wave (I'm Bored, Walk Away), dance oriented (Fall in Love, Oh Fuck Yeah !, Diamonds Light) and electronic pop (Teach Me Tiger, Happy Place...). 

All songs are written and composed by Benjamin except "Teach Me Tiger" written by April Stevens and Nino Tempo.
