Hecq (real name – Ben Lukas Boysen) is a sound and audio designer based in Berlin. He can be seen as a phenomenon: an artist who consistently shows his amazing skills in creating new sound, a producer that works with musical technology and presents remixes that spotlight unseen facets in the work of other musicians. Boysen is more than an expert knob twidler. The listener can easily hear that there is a sensitive human being operating the controls. In his music, atmospheric soundscapes meet sharp cadences and abrupt breaks which leads the enthralled listener into Hecq’s world – an audiobook without a narrator. (taken from his page).

For more information check out Ben’s website, Discogs and MySpace and for some additional videos and music don’t forget about Virb!
