Architekt is Ben Lawrence from Auckland, New Zealand
Ben's musical journey began with picking up the guitar when he was 14 years old. Through playing guitar, he discovered his love for creating music, and went on to form a progressive metal band and experiment with electronic music production in his teenage years.
After attending his first outdoor psytrance party in 2008 and hearing it on an Opus soundsystem, Ben realised he had found the music he had been searching for. He learned to DJ and became part of the Phat Productions crew, and began to produce in 2010.
By 2016 he has become the first artist from New Zealand to release internationally, having produced tracks for Subsystem Records, Womb Records, BMSS Records and Mutagen Records. In that time he played alongside acts such as Chromatone, Mental Broadcast, Cylon, Madd Maxx and Legohead, always taking it to the next level.
After playing his debut live set at Dimension 2017, he has worked with Phat Productions director Dave B to launch the newly minted Phat Productions record label.
The sound of Architekt is unique and recognisable, combining high energy rhythms with meaningful synthesis which takes listeners on a ride. Expect to be blown out of the water when you see him at Weekend Safari this October!
