Collective Minds x Kilo Lounge presents Ben Westbeech!

Ben Westbeech released 2 LPs on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings and Strictly Rhythm respectively and debuted under the house and techno alias ‘Breach’ in 2010. Breach intended as a home for the rough and ready club music he was making, the release of the ‘Fatherless’ EP on PTN dropped in the September of 2010 and was quick to receive acclaim from critics and peers alike. The anticipated follow up was released in 2013, an EP titled ‘Jack’ under Dirtybird Records. The single received critical acclaimed from the moment it debuted, reaching a sought after 9th spot on the UK Official Top 40 Chart. During that same year, Breach released ‘Everything You Never Had (We Had It All)’ with Andreya Triana, which also reached to No.9 in the official chart, and peaked at No. 2 in the official UK Dance chart.
His established label Naked Naked released an impressive selection of music from well-respected techno and house DJs including Midland, Cinnaman, Dark Sky, Dusky, Lorca and Viers. In turn, the label has received consistent support from the likes of George Fitzgerald, Gilles Peterson, Marcel Dettmann and more. Aside from releasing on his own label, Breach has also had historical releases on Ramp/PTN, Pets Recordings, Dirtybird, 2020 Vision and Will Saul’s Aus Music.

In 2013, Breach curated a DJ Kicks mix, showcasing his musical breadth with a selection of tracks embodying his eclectic tastes within house and techno as Breach. In the same year, he created an Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, following and leading up to well-received mixes for Fact, Boiler Room, Mixmag and Fabriclive. After a production hiatus to focus on extensive touring, 2018 saw the return of Breach to Naked Naked, with two new EPs entitled ’Culture’ and ‘Turtle Dance’.
Parallel to the dancefloor music created under his Breach alias, Ben Westbeech explores a broader spectrum of genres via his bi-weekly Red Light Radio show. His ‘Wrong Planet’ show dives into the realms of jazz, psych-rock, soul, folk, disco and everything in between.
