This April Sick Disco is proud to present the Co-founder of Hessle Audio & one of the worlds most respected and exciting DJ's –BEN UFO.
Alongside DJ Oneman, BEN UFO is considered the most consistently freshest and most exciting dubstep/bass music DJ in the world.
As one of the co-founders of Hessle Audio he has been responsible, alongside Ramadanman and Pangea, for some of the most
varied and groundbreaking releases of recent years. Including but not limited to, early appearances by James Blake & Mount Kimbie.
Coming from the still emerging dubstep scenes in London & Leeds in 2005, his musical taste was shaped primarily by the DMZ & Sub Dub nights taking place in those cities. However as tastes have shifted and scenes fragmented, BEN UFO's approach to the music and Hessle Audio itself has developed. He was one of the first DJ's to break Joy Orbisons era-defining Hyph Mngo & has DJ'ed at most of the world's greatest club music festivals, including the Outlook Festival (Croatia), Sonar (Barcelona)and countless others.
He remains one of the few DJ's in the UK to have made an impact with a production career to fall back on, and as such his reputation is solely the result of his skill as a selector and as a mixer. He was the first DJ to play Joy Orbisons massive Hyph Mngo, only a year old but already considered a classic, and hisbi-weekly slot on London's leading ex-pirate radio statio, Rinse FMis considered by the wider scene as one of the only places to hear the most exclusive new music by both new and established producers.
