Ben UFO (Hessle Audio, UK) & Ali & Humb @ Savage

We are super thrilled to invite one of the core figures in an increasingly globally-connected dance music scene, please welcome Hessle Audio's big boss, Ben UFO, to the Cube.

Over the past five years, Ben UFO has acquired a deserved reputation as one of contemporary dance music’s most daring and wide-ranging selectors, with his keen ear and razor-sharp technical abilities enabling him to cut between eras, lineages and mixing styles with dazzling ease and fluidity.

Ben UFO’s development as a DJ has been inextricably linked to the maturing of Hessle Audio, the label he co-founded in 2007. Just as dubstep was starting to unfurl into a sprawling, globalized festival sound, Hessle Audio, in stark contrast, emerged with a strikingly focused, spacious and percussive aesthetic. As the scene continued to unravel, they went on to become one of the most coherent focal points within a rapidly diverging UK dance music community.

It’s refreshingly difficult to pin down what makes Ben’s DJing distinctive and exciting, whether you encounter it on the radio, in a recorded mix or on the dance-floor. If there’s a core characteristic of his approach it’s an infectious warmth and restless love of exploration, exemplified by his habit of meshing mind-bendingly strange tracks into peak-time sets.

Join him in the booth will be Ali and Humb, the UK talents of Hanoi.
