Benjamin Samuels is a 24-year-old Saxophonist & Clarinetist who has completed degrees at both Sydney Conservatorium and Monash university studying Jazz performance and Ethnomusicology. He began his musical journey performing Jazz, Classical and Folk Music around Australia and then turned his ears to Hip Hop. Off the back of his own Australian Funk/Hip Hop project The BeatLab a chance meeting with the producer Grouch in 2017 allowed him to discover his love of electronic music. He joined the electronic project Grouch in Dub (NZ) in 2017 and since then has quickly built his reputation as a top freelance Saxophonist and Clarinetist performing at some of the best events and nightclubs around Australia and collaborating alongside chart topping musicians including Lamalo and Dan McKee (Art Vs Science) as well as countless other producers/Dj’s and musicians including Balkan Bump (US), Dubbaray, MoodSwing and Chevy Bass, Sunny Kim (Us/Korea), Mortisville(UK) and Gabrielle Poso (Italy). More recently Benjamin’s own music and Grouch in Dub has led him further afield with performances at some the best clubs and festival stages worldwide including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Pukka Up Boat party (Ibiza), The Block Club (Tel Aviv), Ozora (Hungary), Echoes of Earth (India), Envision festival (Costa Rica), Earth Frequency and Dragon Dreaming (Aus) and Atman (Sri Lanka). This year he is looking forward to spending the entire summer season in Europe touring with Grouch in Dub and performing and collaborating with various Dj’s and producers.
