UNITED KINGDOM | DJ SET
There is clearly something very special – almost extra-terrestrial– about Ben UFO, with his combination of pulsating rhythms of dubstep, house, garage, grime and old-school hip hop and his exquisite and highly original threading of tempos, styles and ambiences.
His tremendously successful sets are taking experimental and obscure dance music to clubbers all over the world, and his dizzying sounds are bringing euphoria to the dancefloor while cementing his reputation as one of the most daring DJs and selectors around today.
His early influences were drum ‘n’ bass and jungle and the UK rave culture which fed his appetite for English rhythms. Now an established musician, he has co-founded the label Hessle Audio, which has its own slot on Rinse FM, through which he makes connections and explores new ideas and shares his energy and enthusiasm for electronic music. Something tells us that, rather than blood, what flows through his veins are beats!
