Ben Khan returns with the 1000 EP. Featuring four brand-new tracks, the EP will be released 11th May via Ben’s imprint Blessed Vice. First single and EP title track ‘1000’ was premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1.
The barely 22-year-old musician, vocalist, visual artist and producer made a substantial mark in 2014 with the 1992 EP, which introduced his idiosyncratic blend of inventive electronic soul and blues, bruised nocturnal funk and reimagined, angular pop. Arriving seemingly out of nowhere, it won praise from Pitchfork (‘Best New Music’) to NPR (‘Favourite Songs of 2014’), iTunes (‘Artist for 2015’) to BBC Radio 1 (Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’) and The Fader among others, earmarking Ben as one of 2014’s most critically regarded and hotly tipped artists. All the while, the songs clocked up millions of plays across Spotify, Soundcloud and on YouTube with visually striking videos, and topped the charts of blog aggregator Hype Machine several times, demonstrating a wide and unmediated appeal.
