Ben Ashley a.k.a. Bootleg Ben was born in 1985 in Shropshire, UK. Throughout his childhood he always had a facination with music and at the age of 7 he started playing the guitar. Being into artists such as Metallica, Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC he never had much of an understanding of electronic music until he was introduced to The Prodigy by his brother. This sparked a fierce interest and at the age of 15, Ben purchased some turntables and started Djing Old Skool and Drum & Bass. After playing at local partys and raves for some time, Bens musical tastes changed and he started producing and playing trance, electro, house, techno and tech-house.
He has immersed himself in the production side of electronic music since then and aims to continuously create deep, exciting or just plain fun music.
