Ben Khan Forms His Own Gravitational Pull On ‘Ruby’

Ben Khan

On the precipice of his self-titled, debut album, visionary producer and shaker up’er of the scene, Ben Khan, has shared another new single, Ruby.

Khan places an immediate focus on the futuristic elements. Yet, through it all, he remains grounded and composed. Speaking of, Ruby holds some of the artist’s most revolutionary compositions in his career—stacked with layers, each of which are sliding and bending over each other, Khan does superb work to keep it all in tact and palatable.

Branching out from the modern crux of electronica, Khan strays left when everyone else is veering right. There’s something untouchable about his music, however. Khan has formed his own gravitational pull—a sphere of perfectly proportioned electronica, mixed with elements of funk and soul.

Ruby is cut from his debut, self-titled album, which is set for released on 10 August via Dirty Hit. Khan is a magnificent musician. He plays every instrument on the album. However, he wouldn’t be at the level where he is now without some big names assisting him. Flood—who’s pedigree includes PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode, produced the album alongside Khan with Spike Stent (Bjork, Frank Ocean) helping out on mixing and master by Dave Cooley (J Dilla, M83).
