Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis
DEAR MUSIC & CONCERT FANS

We are glad that, after the last months, during which most cultural events had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the coronavirus, live concerts are slowly coming back into our lives.

However, despite the official decision to allow events with above 1’000 visitors again as of October 2020, artists and concert organisers still have to deal with constantly changing and regionally differing measures – ranging from new limitations in the canton of Zurich, via registering-apps to mandatory mask-wearing or distancing rules in other places.

Therefore, we advise you to always check the official information of each event-location directly to inform yourself about the most accurate status and regulation of the concert you want to attend. Additionally, we would like to encourage every music-fan to use the Swiss Covid App, as we strongly believe that the more people act responsibly and observe the health-recommendations, the sooner we will succeed as a community to make attending social events secure again.

In the meantime, we are trying to keep you updated as good as possible about any changes in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!
Thank you, your team at Just Because.

Ben Khan is an artist and producer from London.

In late 2013 a demo called 'Drive (Part 1)' surfaced online, a mesmerizing transmission of hushed falsettos, menacing bass throb, electronic rhythms and mangled blues. Unprompted, the track pricked the ears of tastemakers and casual listeners alike and made him the ‘Most Blogged Artist’ on the Hype Machine. Second track 'Eden' followed and won the accolade of Best New Music on Pitchfork, further fuelling the surge of excitement and intrigue. Third installment 'Savage' was selected by Zane Lowe as his 'Next Hype' and greeted with enthusiasm across the board by now expectant fans, going straight to #1 in the Hype Machine tracks chart.

His first official release comes with ‘1992’ EP, released May 5th on his own imprint Blessed Vice, through Dirty Hit. Featuring fully mixed and mastered versions of the aforementioned tracks as well as new single ‘Youth’, it’s a heady invitation to Ben Khan's vibrantly escapist world, where swampy r&b, contemporary funk, bruised nocturnal soul and exuberant hip-hop brush up against evocative moods, personal lyrical narratives and an encompassing visual sensibility to create something new and audacious.

In approaching his craft, Ben is similarly informed by his cultural heritage – his father a Kashmir born artist specialising in raw design and textile, whose work appears as the backdrop to Ben’s first public image – the ideas and aesthetics of Eastern art and philosophy, along with his experience growing up in London and love of Western film, melding evolving and often abrasively disparate elements to a vivid and dynamic whole. The self-made videos to his tracks offer further testament to this – visual collages channeling evocative imagery.

Displaying a deft confidence and musical maturity that is rare to find in an artist of only 21 years, combined with a sense of thrilling wide-eyed discovery, 1992 is a bold statement of intent that earmarks Ben Khan as one of the UK's most exciting new artists.
