Ben Sims

From the early formative days, Ben has earned his stripes spinning hip hop, house and rave on pirate radio, at parties around Essex and East London through the 90’s as an in demand DJ. Moving into the new millennium as a label boss, producer and internationally recognised techno legend in his own right, Ben Sims has spent all his conscious life exploring the many facets of underground dance music.

Throughout that time, the man has honed his reputation as a tight, energetic mixer who skilfully weaves together his own distinctive blend of tough funk and hardgrooves, often using three-deck wizardry and plenty of dexterity.

Be it at clubs like Fabric London, Atomic Jam, Berghain, Florida 135, or any number of festivals around the world, Sims sets are powerful, memorable, and unique, while constantly pushing the boundaries of a DJ set – utilising a mesmerizing blend of vinyl, CDs, and software.


MANOID is young rising star in the field of electronica and Techno. He makes emotionally charged electronica and techno deeply affecting soundscapes built using a variety of approaches and instruments. Using a blend of field recording, synthesis and sound design he creates electronica that is both organic and mechanised, coming together in a unique way. It’s music best experienced in the physical and the present through his unique LIVE show.
