Fields (6)

Real Name:
Ben Wilson
Profile:
Growing up on a solid foundation of metal and punk, Ben Wilson aka Fields first connected with the sounds of dance music and in particular, drum & bass after hearing Roni Size Reprazent. It wasn’t until he was asked to pick up a copy of Ed Rush & Optical’s Wormhole LP by his brother (Villem), that he knew these were truly the sounds for him.

In ’98 Fields started buying vinyl from his local shop Redeye Records in an effort to discover more and more of the music, and his passion for the diverse sounds of the genre quickly gained momentum. Efforts at production followed soon after; an introduction to programming from Music 2000 on the Playstation led to experiments with Reason, and quickly moving on to discover the workings of Cubase and the Emu 5000 sampler.

It wasn’t until a number of years later that he felt his productions were ready to be sent out to labels. Collaborations with his brother (as Mute) and good friend Stephen Mako were quickly picked up by KSS Black, and shortly after an EP signed to Ingredients Records.

Working on a principle of quality over quantity, Fields is carefully building his catalogue of releases without being held to a particular style or sound. Further signings to Mako’s Utopia Music label, as well as Mars Recordings and more recently to Break’s Symmetry Recordings and Hospital's flourishing sister label Med School will set to solidify Fields as a producer to watch in years to come.
