CALAPSE is the guise of Durham electronic music producer, Reed Benjamin. Benjamin draws from his experience of being a drummer for 20 years, his love for synthesis and modulation, and the duality of being an evenly split intro/extrovert. The latter informs the frenetic energy of his live sets — allowing space for hypnotic melodies that trigger introspection while dark, driving industrial drums transform venues into post-apocalyptic dance halls. CALAPSE has performed at nationally acclaimed festivals including Hopscotch Music Festival and Moogfest, and has been direct support for a wide array of acts including Rival Consoles (Erased Tapes), Pure Bathing Culture (Partisan), and The Holy Drug Couple (Sacred Bones). His first full-length album is due out May 27th on Raund Haus.
