Ben Thomson, better known as Ben UFO is a DJ of a rare kind these days. When it seems like most people set out to make a name for themselves and their music, he appears to be content exploring his artistry in his selection and curation. His refined ear for quality in his DJ sets and as head of Hessle Audio (the record label he runs alongside Pearson Sound and Pangaea), has gained him the utmost respect from DJ’s and electronic music enthusiasts around the world. 

 

His talents as a selector landed him a FabricLive mix that was released January of this year, an honor bestowed on not even most of the world’s most talented DJ’s. He’s been seen on Boiler room on numerous occasions (once doing a four hour mix) and hosts the Hessle Audio showcase every Thursday on Rinse FM. He’s been described as a DJ who not only shows us where we are, but where we’re going. As the DJ who shed light on such producers as Joy Orbison and Blawan, seeing him DJ for myself will be all the more special.

Flash, presented by Decibel Festival and Shameless, brings him to Seattle tonight at Q Nightclub with the prolific Portland producer Ben Tactic. Residents Nordic Soul and Recess will also be playing. 

$10 advance tickets available here  / FB Event / Doors at 9pm / 21+ @ Q Nighclub : 1426 Broadway, Seattle

* Tonight is also the 2 year anniversary of Mindfield Productions

In terms of dj mixes, Pearson Sound aka Ramadanman puts together my favorite sets, next to Erol Alkan. His sense of rhythm and vision for a cohesive collection of songs is impeccable. I’ve played this mix thousands of times, and always go to it for inspiration. I’d say this is one of the best Fabriclives so far, Simian Mobile Disco also did a ridiculous mix a while back. Pick up the mix through boomkat
