Materia Oscura #07 is launched today!

Materia-Oscura-07Have fun listening folks!
Here’s a recording I made at “I ♡ Scorcio.” Actually the first time I played on a newer model of the Behringer mixer family. In my opinion this was a 4 channel rubbish! 🙂

In fact I never seen such annoying kill switch buttons on the right of the EQ knobs. Bad illumination from the leds definitely made it much worse. But we had a HELL of a night! Energised by all you fistpumpers it made my birthday into a real amusing party. Thank you and thanks to Scorcio!

Feel free to listen & download. Play it loud!

× Tracklist included for all information!
× Enjoy and don’t forget to ♡ and share!

Ben Solar at Stubru Interview and Download

Stubru

Friday 17.01.2014

What a crazy friday I had last week. While at work on my lunch break I checked facebook and saw a post from “Switch.” A statement in the Belgian edm scene on StuBru.
They asked their fans what track they had to play at the weekend. What I did is what other producers also might do in this situation. I submitted one of my own tracks. It was Meiko – Leave the lights on (Ben Solar edit). After a couple of hours and still at work I suddenly got a telephone from Stijn Maris. He’s the host of the “Weekend” schedule at Stubru on friday night. He’s the man that played Ben Solar at Stubru

He asked me if I could answer a couple of questions later that night for his show because he really liked this track.
It was a very short interview where I didn’t had the time to talk about the promoters and labels I played for.
I hope I get another chance next time!

Take some time to listen to the interview (Dutch). The track will be played afterwards.

If you would like to download this track then follow the link below.

I like to thank everybody who supported me in this travel. My girlfriend who promoted this track to all her friends. My family. I thank all my fans for supporting me on stage, off- and online. All promoters and party people! (Links in the link section soon.)

Short info about the track:

  • Original artist: Meiko
    Original track: Leave the lights on
  • Mastering by Product Londen & Mixdown by myself. (I recorded this track at -6db Peak 24bit Wav)
    The mastering company boosted the track to -0,2 db peak with a great addition of space and presence on the synth parts.
