Select likes to be different. A little bit like people who refuse to shop at Ikea to avoid having the same furniture as everyone else. Benjamin wanted his music to have a distinctive sound, to be unique. That’s why, for a month he used his flat in Paris as his workshop and created his own modular synthesizer, cutting it directly into wood planks and soldering his own circuits. This felt like the end of a long journey, dating back to his teenage years, when he started working on his first demos using DAW software like Reason or Fruity Loops.
Select works tirelessly on his first album, Lost in Noise, which is scheduled to be released early 2021. No young artist pressure for Select though: in two years, he’s composed close to 90 tracks, and he has selected the best eleven which he is improving to perfection.
