Excellent DJ with an unbelievably eclectic approach that manages to work even when he's doing the likes of mixing the obscure B-side of some German IDM record from 1994 into a dancehall track, then back into a late 90's deep house classic like The Fog, then perhaps back into the most insane bassline acetate you've never heard of -- but why hasn't he done any production? It's kind of refreshing to know someone can still make a name for themselves as "just a DJ" but it seems odd he's never committed a single unique production to vinyl. A shame

To me, Ben UFO has it all. As a non-producer he is still more important and musical than 95% of them as he is an exceptionally talented and versatile DJ, plus a visionary and lush A&R.
The most important in my opinion is his abilty to blend and make super sharp and relevant links and 'correspondances' between styles, families and eras of electronic music inside his mixes while remaining absolutely aesthetically coherent, which is both the mark (and the aim) of a great DJ, and the expression of a strong and deep personality imo. In his case, it translates musically into a trademark, exciting melange of sharp and tuff kicks, resonant and profound bass and the occasional lush-pad-meets-garage-voice-cutup, and some trippy but clear-sounding textures ; a manly yet super sensual combination that he draws in all dance music families from the past 20+ years, even if his core style locates somewhere between bass music and deep techno.
One of the truly inspiring personalities on the scene in the past few years.
