LON is Benjamin Rebillon. Complex and simple, electronic music producer, and DJ. He started as a bass player at 14 years old with the band Deviation until he was 23. Then machines found him and he started to use samplers to create electronic music, then computers, and then he started to DJ.
Three years ago LON started to play in LOgO, and there two years ago he started Amnesiac on every Monday night. Mondays at LOgO, and Amnesiac, became a classic for lovers of electronic music. Benjamin used that space to play freely with music for people that loved and appreciated the use of sounds in space.
It’s simply easy to trip on the colors and textures that LON chooses to come out of the speakers, you can see landscapes shaping in your mind with the sounds produced by LON. If we all could see sound shaping like light in the air, then we would see all these shapes and colorful explosions happening, and we would be eating pop corn while LON plays. With him you can navigate comfortably from pure electronic, to drum ‘n bass, to trip hop, to playful tricky sounds.
Now he plays weekly at Dada on Mondays with Amnesiac, and with Moondust at Lune on Wednesdays. LON is always on the most electronic-like nights at The Shelter, and everywhere where music is interesting. He is also making live sets with S.T.D., The Antidote, and Split Works, as the one he did when he opened for The Field last year on YuyinTang. LON is producing his own music, and this is music that you want to know if you are into electronic music.
This week Urban Waves released its first compilation album that includes track of many nice local producers and from other sides of Gaia, including LON of course. You can download it for free.
Now, this Headphone Banger is to trip and expand your bubble to new dimensions. The mix is a set that LON played last Thursday at The Shelter. Selected Ambient doesn’t work VOL. 1 is a dark ambient mix, and instead of keeping on telling you what it is, better get it and play it on your own headphones, and enjoy it.
LON next dates are:
Saturday March 26th at The Panic Room for the gig Jackson and His Computer Band.
Saturday April 2nd at The Source on an experimental gig in three parts of thirty minutes, each time for only six persons. (!)
Every Monday at Dada. And every Wednesday at Lune.
