Architekt is the project of Ben Lawrence from Auckland, New Zealand.
Ben's musical journey first began when he picked up the guitar at age 14. He quickly developed a strong passion and dedication to the instrument, going on to teach music and form two respected progressive metal bands.
In 2008, Ben experienced his first outdoor psychedelic trance party (Madagascar) and was completely blown away. Shortly afterward he began DJing and realised that this was the sound he had been searching for.
In the summer on 2010/2011, Ben began to dedicate serious time teaching himself to produce full-on psytrance, resulting in the birth of Architekt. His tracks are influenced by artists such as Plasmotek, Brainiac, Materia, Attik, Southwild and Braincell.
