Ben UFO

Genre: Bar DJs

Country of Origin: United Kingdom

Ben UFO founded Hessle Audio with Pearson Sound and Pangaea in 2007. He is one of the few DJs in the UK to make a name for himself solely as a DJ, without having entered the world of production.

In addition to well-received podcasts in magazines and websites as varied as Resident Advisor, XLR8R, Red Bull Music Academy and Fact Magazine, 2011 was the year that Ben UFO entered the world of commercially released mix CDs. His contribution to the respected RinseFM series was widely praised for its coherence despite the breadth of styles showcased, and he was placed #35 in a Resident Advisor readers’ poll to find the year's best DJ. It’s a result which reflects Ben UFO’s ability to successfully present unfamiliar, experimental dance music to a diverse variety of audiences worldwide. - Resident Advisor Website
