Music is Ben’s life. He’s been a keen follower of dance music since he first heard his older brother’s hardcore and jungle tapes aged 10, and works in the clubbing/dance music industry as a PR and Journalist. His obsession with music doesn’t stop at dance music though – he enjoys and appreciates virtually every style of music – which explains his diverse take on DJing. Born to Hungarian parents in Cambridge, he now resides in London and has been making solid progress in the world of DJing. Ben plays across the house music spectrum. Deep, funky, dirty, electro, progressive, techy...there’s no prejudice as far as he’s concerned. He’s also been known to play the occasional deep and groovy downtempo set. Versatility is his key, and his passion for playing different styles of music has helped him to understand the intricacies of dance music at greater depth. His mixing style is involved and energetic – combining effects from his Kaoss Pad II with high-impact cutting and EQing on the mixer to make sure that there’s never a dull moment. But that’s not to say he doesn’t know when to let a track breathe... Ben is a resident for Going Places, the monthly night held until recently at Turnmills which gave the likes of Chopstick!, Erick E and Muzzaik their UK debuts. He is also a resident for Maximal (The Key/The Cross), a newly emerged party that has featured DJs like Switch, Paul Woolford, and Rene Amesz in its first year. He has won 4 separate DJ competitions and has played twice at Europe’s largest festival – Sziget in Hungary. He has played on Budapest’s Tilos Radio, the country’s most respected independent station, and recently played for BBC’s 6Music station. He made his Ibiza debut in 2006, playing at The Orange Corner and also played twice at both Global Gathering and Creamfields – the two biggest dance music festivals in the UK. 2008 sees him play for Together, (Turnmills) Union (Fabric) and Waveform (The End) for starters. He has also embarked on a production career, laying down beats with the likes of techno don Saytek, as well as a remix of rising talent Ricahrd Belsom for Jack Digitals, and of French prog/electro talents Brisker & Magitman for AVA Recordings (both with Pete Hammond) His Red Lake ‘Changes Alright’ bootleg was played 3 weeks running by Judge Jules on his Radio1 show and was made his Tried & Tested Tune of The Week. His productions and bootlegs have been supported by DJs as diverse as Anthony Pappa, Larry Tee, Jesse Rose, Erick E, Tim Sheridan, Anil Chawla, Mason, and The Catz.
