Beshken's debut record Aisle of Palm explores the feelings of delirious happiness, vitality, and anxieties brought on by transitional states between places and within the self.
Arriving on the heels of two 2018 singles, “Victim”, and “The Medicine” and the 2017 EP, ​For Time Is the Longest Distance Between Two People, his latest record coalesces elements of indie, experimental dance, ambient, psychedelia and dream-pop. Self released on his new label, 29 Speedway, Aisle of Palm is a highly personal testament to Beshken’s chameleonic dance between genres.
Growing up in Los Angeles, Ben Shirken (a.k.a. Beshken) was influenced by the city's rich, colorful, and diverse art scene. In L.A., Shirken was part of the group Partytime, remixing Corbin (Spooky Black) and Ryan Hemsworth. The duo performed with artists like Suicideyear, Karman, Girl Pool, and Groundislava at The Smell, Pehrspace, and other art spaces around the city.
In 2015, Shirken moved to New York and began performing in the city’s D.I.Y. scene, where his multi-instrumental and ever-evolving live shows brought him to hallowed venues like Palisades, Elsewhere, and the now-closed Cameo Gallery. Additionally, Ben established himself as a DJ in New York, spinning eclectic sets of house and techno at The Lot Radio, Good Room and NTS Radio. Aisle of Palm signifies an exciting stage in Beshken’s career that underscores his versatility as a producer and honesty as a songwriter.
