If there has been a theme running throughout London producer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Hoo's career to date, it's that he's never wedded himself to a single style. Techno and house inform his recorded music as much as down-tempo and contemporary classical. Ben is drawn towards sound manipulation and design. His approach is steeped in audio reconfiguration, which he offsets by creating his own rich synthetic tones.
Releasing through labels such as Get Physical sub-label Kindisch, German techno label Highgrade, and Josh Wink’s legendary imprint Ovum, Hoo’s body of work is a true testament to his extensive musical ability. Ben Hoo effortlessly transcends the boundaries of raw, unsettling techno, warm deep house filled with artfully chosen chords and echoing melodies, and hypnotic electronica. His remix CV is impressive, including heavyweights such as Moby, Tiga, Booka Shade, M.A.N.D.Y, Fever Ray and Tricky, and his eclectically flavoured highly accomplished productions have been supported by a plethora of A-list DJs.
As a DJ, Hoo’s exploits have taken him around the globe, from intimate basements in East London, Berlin and Barcelona through to Beach parties in Asia and Ibiza, WMC Miami Showcases, and festival appearances at the likes of We Are FSTVL and Bestival. Hoo’s diverse musical tastes and eclectic record collection bring an exciting versatility and an ability to communicate with the most discerning crowds. His animated performance skills, infectious energy, and driving groove-filled sets never fail to captivate those in attendance. Ben’s tastes and curation skills are further manifested through his weekly radio show “We Are Night People" broadcast globally on both Ibiza Sonica and Pioneer DJ Radio.
The future looks full of exciting prospects for this rising talent.
