I first got in to making music when I was fifteen, two of my friends had a band and needed a bass player. I didn’t have a bass for the first few practices, but once I’d raised enough for an old Aria Pro 2 pointy headstock bass my family agreed to buy me a small amp and off I went.

 

We wrote our own material, mainly rocky stuff (our demo got reviewed in Kerrang!), but most of what we did was covers.

 

Gradually I got into other types of music than the LA rock scene, and started listening to grunge, alternative and the indie scene. I was a bit snobbish about dance music all those years ago, but gradually I ‘got it’, and got into Future Sound of London, Orbital, Underworld and all of the other UK electronica of the late 90s.

 

I originally started making my own tunes using an old Ensoniq ESQ-1 (I still use it to this day as a controller keyboard), a borrowed DR-5 drum machine and a dodgy rack mount delay that seemed to have a mind of its own.

 

Eventually I upgraded to a computer, a 200mhz machine that could handle Fruity Loops and Sound Forge. I made my first album on this way back in 2002.

 

Around 2004 I wrote off my car in a crash, and used the insurance money to buy a lovely fast PC (a good decision, the world is a safer place without me driving in it) that could easily run Cubase and a load of plug ins. This is when I started recording as Kalabi, and in 2005 I had my first track released with the help of local producer and friend James Bright.

 

Since then I’ve released tracks all round the world, been ripped off by a German label with my first official album, sold tracks to United Airlines and Swedish airports, and got myself a credit on IMDB as a composer for a short film.

 

I also currently play bass in three local bands and produce two local songwriters.

 

Sadly, I don’t currently make enough from my music to not have to work, so on top of everything else I work five days a week as web programmer. My main goal is to make enough from music to be able to do it full time.

Dear BBS, 

My partner and I would love our music shared with the listeners of BBS.

Our story;

In 2015 I saw a tweet from an NYC artist named Whitney Tai. She was promoting her debut album. I opened the link, hit play, and I heard the most beautiful voice. On a lark, I sent a private message to this talented stranger and she responded. We quickly built a quaint and intimate relationship around our love of music and life.

Coincidently, we were both going through very serious personal challenges. Failed personal relationships, a cancer diagnosis, death of a close relatives, and pets. We stayed in touch weekly. As good fortune would have it, she moved to Los Angeles in early 2018. When Whitney and I finally met in person we immediately felt we’d create beautiful and unique music. And that’s what we’ve achieved.

Whitney and I have just released an EP and are receiving an amazing response internationally. We are proud to be the feature cover story of The Aquarian a music publication currently on new-stands all over New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. In addition, Australia’s Happy Magazine is  running a 2 part feature on us.

The release features the title track "Flowers By The Roadside" and a haunting, alt-electro version of the classic holiday song, “Silent Night”. Flowers By The Roadside is a Folktronica (Simon & Garfunkel meets Goldfrapp) piece was co-written with Los Angeles based singer/songwriter, Whitney Tai, composer/guitarist, Michael Trainor and produced by #1 Billboard Producer, Tim Janssens.

Our hope is that Flowers By The Roadside empowers and comforts the individual who feels they’ve no voice in society. It’s a gentle reminder that the individual is visible, beautiful, and capable of change in an increasingly challenging civilization, where people's voice and basic human rights are disappearing.

Both tracks are FCC CLEAN and registered with BMI. Attached you will find our press release, photo, and below downloadable Soundcloud & Bandcamp links.

Ben Osborn is a British singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist based between Berlin, Germany and Bristol, UK. Fast Awake is Ben’s debut single and it is due for release on 23rd November 2018 via Nonostar Records, the label founded by German experimental violinist and producer Alex Stolze. Fast Awake is a taster for Ben’s debut album, Letters From The Border, due for release via Nonostar in Spring 2019. Letters From The Border was produced and composed by Ben and Alex during a residency at Alex’s studio complex on the German/Polish border in Summer 2018. 
Fast Awake has been informed by the music of the many cities where Ben has lived over the years. This includes an echo of the elegiac beauty of Thom Yorke’s solo work which references Ben’s childhood in Oxford; a dubby trip-hop ambience familiar to fans of the Bristol scene, where Ben has composed for the award-winning Fellswoop Theatre Company with French director Bertrand Lesca (Cheek by Jowl, Peter Brooke) since 2010; and a driving kick drum which evokes the classic techno synonymous with Berlin, where Ben is now partly based. Fast Awake is a sophisticatedly woven mix of prepared piano, stuttering percussion and processed strings which blend seamlessly to create a unique and beguiling sound world. 
The lyrics of Fast Awake articulate Ben’s feeling of living in a world that is ever shifting, often in an overwhelmingly rapid manner, “Everything’s changing so why can’t you change? Everything’s strange here and you are a stranger”. Fast Awake juxtaposes its themes of disorientation and anxiety with musical material built of complex, shifting harmonies, polyrhythmic beats and Alex Stolze’s shimmering, haunting violin melodies. 
Ben Osborn is the latest artist to join the Nonostar roster, which has also seen the release of Alex Stolze’s acclaimed solo albums Mankind Animal and Outermost Edge as well as Solo Collective Part One, the highly praised debut release from the modern classical trio of Alex Stolze with cellist Anne Müller and pianist/producer Sebastian Reynolds. Other Nonostar releases include the Mahajanaka EP by Sebastian Reynolds and the Aracus EP by German producer Qrauer. 
Ben's soundtracks and sound designs have won the Cameron Mackintosh Award, the Methuen Drama Emerging Artists Award, the Peter Brooke Empty Space Award and a Manchester Theatre Award.  His critically acclaimed libretti have been performed at London’s National Portrait Gallery, the Bristol Proms, BBC Radio 3’s live concert series and the RCM Britten theatre among other prestigious venues. He is a co-founder of and teacher at the Berlin Open Music Lab, a free school for refugee musicians.
