Berlin’s Ben Böhmer is back with another uplifting melodic house single, this time with support from frequent collaborators JONAH. “Escalate” is structured around a major chord structure built up with deeply textured synths and atmospheres, offering the trademark robust sound of a Böhmer production. On social media, Böhmer shared how “Escalate” came together.
“This track had a very unique vibe from the start. It all came together super quickly as myself and JONAH wrote the whole song in one night. It took on many iterations along the way but still reflects that feeling we had in the initial moment when we started working on it… Wanting to break out, feel free and move on with our lives!” – Ben Böhmer
“Escalate” is the second single from Ben Böhmer’s upcoming album Begin Again, scheduled for release on September 24 via Anjunadeep. It follows “Beyond Beliefs,” the track Böhmer used to open his now-famous Cercle DJ set. Alongside the most recent collaboration, duo JONAH will make a second appearance on Begin Again with “Home.” Begin Again also features Gordi, lau.ra, and PBSR.
