Benjamin Damage and Doc Daneeka - They!Live

Two Welsh guys taking the techno-world. Mixing several genres and it all seems to come naturally. With their collaborative album “They! Live” Benjamin Damage and Doc Daneeka released the third debut album on the Modeselektor’s Label “50 weapons“ in addition to Cosmin TRG’s “Simultat" and Anstam’s “Dispel Dances”. Even though “50 weapons” is still quite a young label with about a dozen EP’s and the previously mentioned albums, they were well received, and left a strong impression on both critics and fans. It seems like the hype around the newfound success doesn’t bother the producer-duo much!

Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka - They! Live [Buy the album]


After two slower and more cheerful tracks with the British singer Abigale Wyles, the duo moves beyond their upbeat-leaning past, exploring deeper more club-suitable techno sounds by releasing “Deaf Siren”. The album combines influences from old school Detroit-techno to UK funky/bass/2step sounds from the last couple of years.

With the phenomenal anthem “Creeper”, Damage and Daneeka prove their ability to compete in the club-scene. Unsurprising that “They! Live” keeps reminding us of the Dub- prodigies Jaar or Blake and even of Modeselektor’s “Monkeytown” considering that everything was recorded under the same roof and mostly produced with the same equipment.

The third track featured by Wyles “Halo” is a sample of soft and almost mysterious sounds like we know them from artists like Burial, Four Tet, Flying Lotus & Co. Detroit meets UK-Underground meets Berlin Deep Tech/House – three of the most important and at the same time contrasting Electronica-Genre which Benjamin Damage and Doc Daneeka effortlessly mixed together on one album. After 8 almost perfect dub-techno tracks “Bleach and Penicillin” feels like the sunrise after a night out in one of Berlin’s clubs.

At the end, it seems like the Welsh duo have managed to combine what other artists need a two sided discography for in only 9 tracks under 45min - UK-Bass, Detroit-Techno and Berlin House mixed together and it seems like it it’s the most natural thing in the world.
