Benedikt Frey lines up second album ‘1987’ on R.i.O.

Five years since the release of his debut album on ESP Institute, Benedikt Frey lines up his second album in November through R.i.O. – the Berlin-based label he established in 2019 with fellow producers Nadia D’Alò and Menqui.

Since his debut release in 2010, Benedikt Frey has established himself as a prolific DJ and producer with a penchant for absorbingly psychedelic mid-tempo grooves that have a tendency to envelop you entirely. His discography is a testament to his wide-ranging talents, with releases on a wealth of respected imprints including; Bahnsteig 23, Crème Organization, Mule Electronic, Hivern Discs and Craigie Knowes.

Consisting of six tracks of dark textures – including downtempo, melancholic dub, trip-hop and experimental – Frey delves deep into hypnotic grooves to unravel a motley body of music suited for late night trips through the dimly lit cobbled streets of Neukölln. Highlights include ‘Phrack‘, ‘Attitude‘ and ‘Steam‘.

‘1987’ is scheduled for release 18 November via R.i.O. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
