A true DJ needs to be in the moment…to find the right song for each and every moment. DJing for over 12 years, Ben’s knowledge and variety of musical selections run deep, but his approach goes beyond the music to the people. With a degree in Sociology and emphasis in Ethnomusicology from UC Irvine, his keen understanding of people and the role music plays in our lives gives him a huge advantage in using music to touch, move, and awaken his audience. With an ability to mix all genres, Ben holds expertise as an indie rock DJ serving in the greater Los Angeles region. Sure, in his DJ sets you’ll hear timeless, classic songs expertly mixed with the latest favorites, but you’ll also be turned on to something new and captivating.
Born and raised in Los Angeles to an international family, Ben loves traveling and bringing his unique sounds to other cities, and at the same time being inspired by them. Having performed and toured in Brazil, London, Montréal, Hawaii, New York, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco, Texas and all over his native Southern California, he draws upon a wide array of musical influences, mixing together the best in beat-driven music. One of Ben’s specialties is seamlessly mixing Latin music into his unique sets, setting the dance floor en fuego!
In addition to DJing, Ben has served as Project Manager & Music Supervisor on national marketing campaigns for Scion, Lexus, Casio, and the Harlem Globetrotters. Professionalism is at the core of everything he does, and throughout his career, Ben has never had a dissatisfied client.
