Benson never really had a particular interest in music until he went to study at Leeds University and found that raving was fashionable. He comes from a middle-class home, where he shuffled his way through the public school educational system without any interest in music except for a period when he attempted to learn the drums but after passing grade 1 with merit he had to give up due to a hereditary wrist injury. His parents supported him through university, so he was able to buy CDJs and a big sound-system so he could ensure he always got gigs at the biggest house parties. He bought a second hand Moog synth from a pawn shop when he was temporarily fascinated by synthesizers, not knowing its true value, sold it back to the pawn shop for £20 when he became frustrated with it.
Too impatient to learn through practice, he purchased several “How to DJ” instructional DVDs and has book on how to mix records. His musical influences have mostly been UK Top 40 dance tracks, and he finds anything that isn't house or techno repulsive. His musical style is an eclectic mix of house, deep house, tech house and deep-tech house, mostly chosen from whatever Mixmag reviews, whatever Beatport suggests when he logs in, and any tracks that his friends mention more than once.
Benson feels quite good about his musical development over the past few years, which some people in attendance have described as “surprisingly decent.” Some guy from a house party who manages a wetherspoons once expressed an interest in booking him for a ladies night, but this didn't quite come to fruition due technical issues with the venue. Other people have said that Benson is “ nice guy”.
