About

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.

    This is excellent! I started out as a dnb dj. Your style works so well! It's like old skool and Hospital stuff in one. Great combination!

    @Kacpro: that means alot! thanks :) The track was actually the beginning of an entry to a remix comp. I managed to make this in a day, then my house got flooded so had to leave it, but I think it was one of them tunes that was meant to be left as they were sketched out
