[aliases: Fork-Tailed Woodnymph, Ben Zulauf, Edgar Jack]
This story must begin with an old Roland analog drum machine and a well used Juno synthesizer over many a late evenings ago in the late 90s. Before clubs, warehouse raves and second hand record stores, it was just some young guy with his gear in a cool basement out in the Australian countryside, making up beats purely on instinct and hours of experiment. These are the core essentials if you like to what makes this multi-national, multi-tasking and multi-skilled artist tick.
Benjamin Philippe Zulauf is no stranger to change and evolution, his own music has been heavily influenced from different cities he has lived in, from Melbourne with the likes of Phil K, Revolver and Honkytonks to Lausanne with La Ruche, Ripperton, Agnés and Digitaline making their mark. Then it was Berlin with the likes of Mike Shannon, CDV, DJ Sotofett and Panorama Bar to currently in Leeds with Cosmic Slop and Hope House showing the way. You will hear bits off of these scenes in his sets and music productions, be it techno, deep house, electro, acid, break beats or minimal electronica, it is less about a genre and more about feeling and a story being played out.
You will find Benjamin these days still hard at work and pushing forwards with new material. His label is now established and his own productions are being championed by the likes of Laurent Garnier, Peace Division, DJ Rolando (UR), LTJ Bukem, DJ Bone, Fred P, Terry Frances, Barac, DJ Sprinkles and Âme. It would not be out of place to say that he has earned this over the past years and that nothing ever comes without the hard work and dedication to that love of drum machine and synthesizer noise.
