Be Svendsen aka Lasse Bruhn Svendsen produces an organic, melodic and nomadic style of groovy techno, which paints tonal stories that invoke the primal parts of your feral imagination.
After starting his solo project in 2011 releasing a series of EPs and remixes on various labels, the ripples spread via live performances, and a breakthrough into the international scene came in 2014. Touring through Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa, performing at festivals such as BOOM, Fusion, Burning Man, Symbiosis, Rainbow Serpent and AfrikaBurn, the world quickly awoke to his enchanting vibrations.
While exploring a myriad of styles and musical traditions, Be’s live show-downs has developed into a melting pot of hypnotic desert-circus-shaman-cowboy-techno, incorporating elements of vocals, teased field-recordings, nostalgia-
provoking samples and live instruments, mixed up with the meditative qualities of repetition.
His performance takes the audience on a deep experimental journey, providing a cinematic soundscape allowing the receivers to celebrate the light and dark parts of existence. It never fails to create an intense, shared experience that evokes big smiles and open hearts on the dance floor.
Lasse extracts the essence from soulfully simplistic and almost naive melodies, layered with Vintage-beats and an amalgamation of field recordings and organic samples, providing a cinematic soundscape or a musical adventure, which beckons with familiar elements, whilst leading you further into unknown territory.
As Lasse sees it; “the music should ultimately connect you to a bigger picture. The goal is to express and convey a feeling, and to behold the moment - the essence of oscillating between a smile and a tear. I like to bring tragedy and humor together, and invite them up for a dance”.
The aim: to behold the moment in the outdoors—the perfect setting for a fusion of music and nature.
