The Word Radio x Schiev Festival 2019 with Ben Bertrand

Ben is among those people you stumble upon many times in Brussels. They’ll never force anything nor will try to push their music too much, if at all. And one day you hear him live, nearly randomly. And it’s like some sort of spell. It comes to you creeping slowly, it tip-toe to your very heart and stay there for days after. It’s not a reference we pull out lightly, but you’ll find a similar “gentleness” you can find in Arthur Russel’s music (despite sounding totally different and Ben never heard of him lol). This is, to put it simple, one of the most subtle and delicate music we’ve heard, in a while.
