Hessle Audio’s selector features in the latest edition of Dekmantel’s ‘Sole Selectors’ video series…
This six minute documentary short tells the story of outspoken non-producer and label runner Ben UFO. We’re presented with interviews and footage of the singular DJ in the Rinse FM studio and on the streets of London. He tells the story of how himself and label co-owners David Kennedy (Pearson Sound) (who featured together in a recent Hyponik feature) & Kevin McAuley (Pangaea) broke into radio on Sub FM which subsequently led to them starting the label.
He also talks about experiencing FWD & DMZ in London, his approach to DJ’ing on stage and the feeling of elation that presenting radio has brought to him. This is the third video in the series which started with Rush Hour’s Antal and followed up with Berlin’s Mr. Ties last month.
Dekmantel takes place across three days from 1st to 3rd August in the grassy meadows of Amsterdam Bos. Hessle Audio will be out in full force, as will the likes of Jeff Mills, Jamie XX, Joy Orbison, Levon Vincent, Blawan, Daphni and John Talabot and Axel Boman’s new Talaboman side project.
Listen to Ben UFO’s show on Rinse FM every Thursday from 9pm – 11pm and on 106.8FM in London.
