Brought up by the classics, Ben Sigrah traded his classically trained ear for the tricky-deep sounds of electronically produced music at an early age. After discovering complex genres like Jungle and Drum & Bass, he resisted the rigorous ways of orchestral performance and found himself in front of a computer. In the few years after his DJ debut in 2010, this Portland based producer started to make his mark on the dance music world with sounds almost entirely unique to himself. His unique and diverse approach to 160/170 bpm is refreshing in a time when Ivy Lab knock-offs are a dime a dozen and the “halftime” label is getting thrown at basically any music written at 85 bpm. His production is just a strong on an ethereal jungle roller as it is on a chunky neuro hip-hop beat that belongs on Noisia Radio, which is displayed through his diverse releases on labels ranging from Rogue Dubs to STYLSS to Aufect. Sigrah, as he is known to most, falls short in no ways, passionately delivering his desire for clean sound design at a high volume. Ben is driven to find what moves you which is clearly exhibited in his own original sub-heavy tracks and enchantingly dark mixes. Trust that Sigrah is always digging into the depths of the realms for fresh, inventive selections.
Fission Vision EP
The Fission Vision EP is Sigrah’s latest and most cohesive production effort for 2018. The 5-track EP is a clear and honest look at the sounds that have been such a major influence on his productions over the last 8 years. Ranging in feel from autonomic & ethereal, to experimental bass laden beat music, wrapped in an uptempo format, this EP refuses to be pigeon holed.
