Benjamin Buttons is a 22 year old DJ/Producer from London.
He has grown up surrounded by house music and has been heavily influenced by his parents who were very much involved in London's early clubbing scene which saw the rise of acid house music and the euphoric explosion of unlicensed parties and illegal raves in Britain. His sound often resembles elements of the early to mid 1980s/90s soul and funk infused dance music style of disco with a prominent kick/bass drum on every beat, Combined with a mixture of dark, melodic, energy-fuelled tech driven beats from todays underground tech house music scene. expect to hear heavy electronic synthesizer basslines, electronic drums, electronic effects, Chords, Stabs, Funk Samples, and Reverb- or Delay-enhanced vocals and build ups..
His Fascination with House Music has lead to him achieving many things. He has played at a variety of Clubs and Underground Events throughout England and Ibiza including; EGG, We Are FSTVL, Fire, Lightbox, Warehouse LDN, Electric Brixton, 93 Feet East, No 65. Cargo, XOYO, The Arch (Brighton), Es Paradis and more. Including brands such as DJ Mag, Connected, Magna Carta, Native, Vertical, Key of Life, OutOut, Industry LDN, YMO, X and Resonance Records, Familia, Nocturnalism,
He has even held a 2 year residency at one of London's most exciting parties Heroes/The Night Train at the EGG London
His passion and dedication to the music is reflected by his ongoing desire and obsession to provide listeners with fresh unheard of material. It is a rarity to hear buttons play a track on more than one occasion, spending most of his free time digging deep to find new artists labels and there music. his main aim is to take people on a spiritual journey through his exhilirating live sets, mixing tracks in such a way that they blend together as one continuous mix to tell a story to his audience.
The name Benjamin Buttons has come from past influences & sounds from the early days of house music contrasting with the present creations of raw and underground dubby basselines, signifying the crossover of timescales, not to mention his rhythm & sharpness when actually using the mixer and its buttons!
To Benjamin it is not just about playing music, its about feeling the music, and understanding how a perfectly executed continuous mix of tracks can maintain a spiritual energy which in some cases, is unexplainable.
He has recently finished a music production course at a college in London and is ready to take the next step towards his dream. With unreleased material receiving huge support from some of his favourite artists already. Things can only get better!
