Bio

'Boom Monk Ben is renowned for selecting the best of underground hip hop, drum & bass, house, electronica and the rest, as well as displaying a passion for the older groove through boxes of the heaviest New Orleans funk to the rawest Kingston dance-hall, taking in the best jazz, soul, disco and his favourite dance floor nuggets from through the years.

A prominent figure in Glasgow's close knit clubbing scene, Ben can be found cutting, spinning and fumbling his way through boxes of beats at the city's best clubs, bars and radio stations. The Arches, The Art School and Sub Club all smashed to pieces on regular occasions by his diverse mix of dance floor bangers, acapella blends and 3 deck mixing.

Ben has caught the attention of clubs nationwide and further with appearances at the best clubs in Paris, Moscow, Gothenburg, London, Belfast, Derry, Bristol, Edinburgh as well as Bestival 2007, Copenhagen’s Public Service Festival and the VIP opening of The Middlesbrough Institute Of Modern Art.

The mighty Ninja Tune have been impressed enough to approach Ben to provide a series of 'Boom Monk Zen' mixes for their world famous Solid Steel radio show, which is broadcast in 30 countries world wide. Met with universal support, Ben beat off competition from Mr Scruff, Kid Koala, Cut Chemist, MANDY, James Holden and many, many more to finish runner up in the Best Of 2006' Solid Steel guest mix competition. In 2007 he came in 3rd place with plenty more to come this year. Recently there’s been more Boom Monk beats on your wireless when Kiss FM broadcast an exclusive DJ mix for Joe 90’s Future Boogie show. As always, you can check his fidgety fingers on the regular by tuning into www.ninjatune.net/solidsteel.

With the release of the first installment of the ‘Mixing Bizness with Leisure’ series, a mix CD collaboration between Boom Monk Ben and Bristol’s renowned Leisure Recordings due in the near future, keep your ears to the streets for more info…'
