Ben Sims

Profile:
From the early formative days, Ben has earned his stripes spinning hip hop, house and rave on pirate radio, at parties around Essex and East London through the 90’s as an in demand DJ. Moving into the new millennium as a label boss, producer and internationally recognised techno legend in his own right, Ben Sims has spent all his conscious life exploring the many facets of underground dance music.
Throughout that time, the man has honed his reputation as a tight, energetic mixer who skilfully weaves together his own distinctive blend of tough funk and hardgrooves, often using three-deck wizardry and plenty of dexterity. Be it at clubs like Fabric London, Atomic Jam, Berghain, Florida 135, or any number of festivals around the world, Sims sets are powerful, memorable, and unique, while constantly pushing the boundaries of a DJ set – utilising a mesmerizing blend of vinyl, CDs, and software.

I can't believe nobody has said anything about Ben Sims. In my humble opinion and I know I'm right on this, Ben Sims is without doubt one of the most technically gifted DJs I have heard. Defintely the most techical in Techno. Whatever your electronic music persuasions, all DJs that mix can learn a lot from listening to his sets. Mixing, cuts, scratching, spinbacks. James Zabiela is an incredibly talented DJ but he's for the geeky, technology led new kids, Ben Sims is highly techical but above all a party DJ, he just knows how to manipulate music and makes it his own and still supports vinyl. Check out the Essential Underground compilation he mixed, alongside Christian Smith, amazing modern dancefloor Techno. A true legend and one of my biggest inspirations.
