BEN SIMS (Machine – UK)
With over 20 years experience under his belt, Ben Sims has a well-deserved reputation as one of the world’s most in-demand and leading techno DJs – a tight, energetic mixer who skilfully weaves together his own distinctive blend of tough funk and hardgrooves, often using three-deck wizardry and plenty of dexterity.
Sims has put his name to more than 50 releases in the last two decades. During those years, there has also been a steady stream of high profile remixes of scene heavyweights, including Jeff Mills, Adam Beyer, Kevin Saunderson and Chris Liebing, on labels du jour like AXIS, KMS, CLR and Drumcode, all of which have won as much critical praise as they have crossover success.
LESSIZMORE with ION LUDWIG [Live]
Ion Ludwig moved from Leeuwarden to Amsterdam and from there to Berlin in early 2005, throughout the 4 years he lived in Berlin. While actively producing in the studio places like Club Der Visionaere and Weekend Club helped shape his live performances to perfection. On stage his live performances take place with the eye and ear set on the musical ‘horizon’. Combining drum machines and synthesizers with a laptop and recordings from older and newer work his sound radiates a never-ending story and energy.
