WeTransfer’s podcast series resumes for another episode of detailed discussion about the musical inspiration and influences of two select artists. Installment four invites the malleable Ben Westbeech aka Breach and disco edit king, Kon for a chat behind the microphone with host Thris Tian. Recored in Westbeech’s hometown of Amsterdam, the long-time friends touch upon a collaborative album in the works before moving on to a few chosen tracks in response to a weaving narrative covering a number of themes.
We learn about the art and philosophy of tag names as Kon reflects on his days as a graffiti artist and b-boy, his early love for hip hop and the roots of his journey to the current day. Westbeech explains the “car test” which is the apex of approvals for any new production, and is also found out for being a “legit” scratch battle DJ.
Peppered with music from Rasa, Snoop Dogg, New Edition and Tom Trago, as always WeTalkMusic will provide an absorbing listen during some well deserved downtime.
