Swiss duo Benja & Reto Ardour are residents at Zurich’s Hive club and have previous individual releases for the night’s sister label Hive Audio, their finest moments however have come as a duo.

With an EP just having landed on Audiomatique and a brilliant three-tracker lined up for the aforementioned Hive Audio (the “Strongship EP” lands on the 15th of December) they’re proving their work is more than simply the sum of its parts and swiftly climbing the ranks in the house world.

To showcase their sound they’ve kindly put together this rather tidy guest mix for us that gives a taster of what to expect if you catch them in action and also offers a preview of their new material. Get stuck in.

Guest Mix: Benja & Reto Ardour (Hive Audio)


Future Sound of London obsessive with a taste for moody house, techno and drum n bass. I was also rather partial to speed garage and am still slightly obsessed with early 90s rave. To keep up with more of my shocking banter or to get in touch you can get me on Google+ and Twitter.
