Benjamin Damage is scheduled to release Obsedian, his third album (his second solo long-player), on 50Weapons in which will mark the end of an era for the legendary techno imprint after label founders Modeselektor officially announced yesterday of its impending closing.

As the first artist (outside of Modeselektor) to release on the label it’s apt that this album is also the last one on 50WEAPONS.

As Damage states: “Obsidian is a collection of fragmented memories from all the music I’ve ever liked, distorted and restructured into a full length techno record. A purely personal project and an end of an era with 50Weapons.”

In advance of the album’s September 25, a cut of “Cosmonaut” can be streamed over on RA.
