Biography

More than one artist exists by the name of Breach:

1. An electronic music producer from Bristol, UK.

2. A punk band from Sweden.


1. BrEaCh is the house-focused pseudonym of the Bristol, England multi-instrumentalist Ben Westbeech. He first used this alter ego as a recording name a good six years after his own name graced the landmark opening release for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label. Summer 2010 and 2011 each saw Breach singles issued on the RAMP Recordings imprint, Pattern. By the time summer 2012 had arrived, he had launched his own Naked Naked label on which he released “You Won’t Find Love Again” and “101” before the year was over. February 2013 brought an inventive and moody collaboration with the London-based trio Dark Sky. However, it was the more commercial approach of “Jack” — released the same year on San Francisco’s Dirtybird Records — which secured Breach a U.K. Top Ten single placing.


2. Noisy and furious somewhere between the tribal angst-filled sound of Neurosis and Tortoise. Luleå, Sweden 1993: The local punkband Superdong split up. A lot of people couldn’t care less. Now we know better. One half of Superdong quickly forms Fireside, and the other half becomes Breach.

Luleå turns out to be a perfect place to develop the ultra-raw but still melodic / that has become the signum of Breach, and frankly they got absolutely nothing else to do then put all energy in to the band (not counting suicide or ice-hockey as serious options). Breach appear on a few compilation albums and put out their first MCD “Outlines” on Burning Heart Records.

    Niklas Quintana is the Cuckoo in Terra Tenebrosa, hence he is their creator. And when I saw both Terra Tenebrosa and The Old Wind live in Roadburn last April, he was actually on stage with The Old Wind as well, playing guitar. Yes, this happened.

    I wonder who is the one who created Terra Tenebrosa. A real genius. Most likely Niklas Quintana.
