Ben Böhmer, a “ethereal” electronic producer, remixes Rostam‘s “From the Back of a Cab” for the Changephobia Remixes: Part 2 compilation. The first half of the album features remixes by A.G. Cook and A.K. Paul, with Ben joining Easyfun and others for the second half. His remix of the “soft, pretty” (Stereogum) original features his signature serene production, complete with silky beats and soft synths.
The track follows the release of Begin Again, which features singles “Beyond Beliefs,” “Escalate” ft. JONAH, “Erase” ft. lau.ra and “A Matter of Time.” Begin Again was written while Böhmer and his wife were separated for nine months on opposite sides of the globe due to a global travel ban. The album perfectly captures the longing and uncertainty that he and many of us felt at the time.
The year 2021 has been a standout year for “the new star of the world electronic scene” (Vogue UA) – the Ukrainian DJ and producer has been named Spotify’s #1 fastest growing electronic artist, with over 60 million streams. He won Best Live [Streamed] Act Award at the AIMs in what has been arguably the most competitive year for live streamed performances, beating out artists such as Phoebe Bridgers, Arlo Parks and beabadoobee.
