About Ben UFO

Ben UFO (Ben Thomson) is one of London's most forward-thinking DJs, and a cornerstone of the post-dubstep bass music scene. A co-founder of Hessle Audio, a label that has continuously explored the outer edges of what can be considered club music, UFO is similarly adventurous during his DJ sets, bringing numerous styles together into an unpredictable yet cohesive flow. On occasion, he does sets dedicated to old-school jungle. Unlike most DJs in the scene, UFO is active solely as a DJ and not as a producer or remixer. His only commercially available mix CDs to date are Rinse: 16 (2011) and Fabriclive 67 (2013), but he's released several underground mixtapes and contributed to numerous podcast series, from Boiler Room to Dekmantel. He hosts a weekly show on Rinse FM, and has made appearances on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix.
