SUPERNATURAL SELECTION EP (NOW AVAILABLE)

MY SUPERNATUAL SELECTION EP IS FINALLYYYY OUT! 🦄🦄🦄

This year I've been pushing myself and experimenting with a lot more club-centric records...tapping into very weird cool unusual ideas that completely go against all the traditional songwriting that I typically employ. I wanted to showcase this side of me and share some records actually work in the club but still feel memorable. I had a lot of fun making these tunes and hope you guys enjoy them!

Euphoric.NET Premiere: Girl From Outer Space

Ben Dragon’s new release “The Girl From Outer Space“ is a prime example of a song that captures that banging’ 4 on the Floor energy while tactfully side-stepping the repetitious monotony that can veer an average listener away from the entrancing vortex that is House music.

I particularly enjoyed the dynamics of Ben Dragon’s composition on this one. He did a phenomenal job of encompassing a wide spectrum of dynamic techniques like breakdowns, build-ups, low-pass filters, modulation and phrasing thus tactfully capturing one’s level of interest throughout the track.

The bassline has an intoxicating pulse and a lively bounce to it, while the synth work taps into the nostalgic sentiments keenly reminiscent of Acid House, plus he even through some 808 era cowbells in there (which tickles my House loving soul). To top it off, the vocal work is quite tastefully done. It features a pitched down male voice (I mean… it is House music after all) coupled with subtle snippets of female vocals sitting perfectly in the background resulting in a well balanced dichotomy between masculine and feminine energies.

Long story short… this shit bumps! No doubt it’s getting a firm spot in my rotation.

Magnetic Magazine Premiere: Pump & Shake

"Los Angeles based producer Ben Dragon has some fire for your ears. He helps keep the summer heat streak going with his newest single “Pump & Shake.” The robotic vocals and dirty Detroit tech house beat gradually build up to an epic breakdown at the end. “Pump & Shake” is the first single off of Ben’s EP Supernatural Selection set for release at the end of this month on his own imprint Fire To My Ears Records. Ben accomplishes a difficult feat by delivering a song that is simultaneously both sexy and weird." - Sylvie Barnett
