To get over as a non-producer and only a DJ at this current day and age? And spin vinyl/dvs? Now that's talent.

Will surely be known to posterity as one of the finest djs ever

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.
