2019 Rewind: Ben Rau


How was 2019 for you?
Ben Rau: 2019 was really special. I got to tour a lot and signed with a great agency. It really feels like a breakthrough year for me, and as it looks 2020 will be even better.

Definitely playing Rex Club with Kerri Chandler and playing the Amnesia Terrace in Ibiza as well as the success of the Out There EP have all been amazing!

Getting sick after my Australia tour because of being rundown from all the traveling.

Song of the year?
Without a shadow of a doubt, Paul Woolford’s “Story of My Life.” It has a huge vocal and is an amazing, classy and timeless record.

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Keep working hard and keep pushing.
