Oxford - UK

Ben Holt, 20 year old DJ / Producer from Oxford. My introduction to electronic music was around 3-4 years ago, listening to the likes of Frankie Knuckles, Roger Sanchez and Todd Terry etc. 

Since then I have been hooked on the classic / Chicago house sound which naturally led me to discover modern house artists such as Josh Butler, Sante, Sidney Charles, Bontan and more. My sets vary from tech house, classic Chicago style house, disco and techno.

I have only started producing properly in the past year with some exciting projects in the pipeline.

Who inspired you to start DJing?

"DJ that inspired me to start DJ’ing was Jackmaster, I was watching one of his sets from years back and from then I was hooked from there as I was inspired by the way his sets vary in energy so much."

Artists that are doing it for you?

"A few artists that are doing it for me at the moment are Elliot Adamson, Josh Gregg, Eli Brown, Pig & Dan, Maximiljan and Jesse Perez"

Most memorable experience

"My most memorable experience was the first time playing out a record of mine and my brother’s called ‘Cuff’ at a night I co run called Flowerz. The feeling of seeing your record go down well is indescribable"
