Many features about Ben UFO are quick to assert “all he does is DJ,” and it’s true that famous DJs with no productions to their names are somewhat rare. But when you consider everything the man born Ben Thomson does as a DJ, from a regular show on Rinse FM, to mix CDs, mixtapes (a proper cassette, that is), podcasts, and the many club gigs, it’s clear Thomson has a much wider engagement with DJing than most. He’s also able to dig deeper than most — after falling for house just a couple short years ago he’s amassed a record collection that would stand proud with those from some of the deepest house heads. Add on top of this co-running Hessle Audio, one of the most influential labels of the past couple years, and it’s a surprise he’s able to do everything he does. One of the undisputed tastemakers of the current UK scene, but with a record bag packed for longevity instead of current trends, we’re elated to present our 115th podcast mixed by Ben UFO.
