As a kid digging through his father’s vinyl collection soaking in the goodness (classic rock, funk, soul, & disco) to recording mixes off the radio by legendary DJs such as Kool Herc & Red Alert, Ben was rapidly stacking the building blocks to a wealth of musical knowledge.
It’s no surprise then that Ben started his DJ career in the mid 90s with 2 turntables and a mixer and has not looked back. As his alter ego BenjaStyles, Ben has played at some of the hottest clubs in and around Philadelphia (ie. Whisper, Denim, 32 Degrees, Sumo, Harrah’s Pool in Atlantic City) for more than a decade and racked up plenty of cool points spinning for the Philadelphia Eagles & Flyers. On top of that, Ben is known for his versatility and is no stranger to rocking out weddings & other events as part of Remixologists’ Philadelphia wedding DJs.
But not only is he a veteran club & event DJ, Ben is also an accomplished super producer who has worked with prominent artists in the music industry (Estelle & Freeway to name a few) and featured on influential music blogs like Nah Right & Rap Radar. His remixes have been played by your favorite radio stations from Q102 & Hot 97 in NYC, Power 106 in LA, to BBC 1Xtra. Ben was recently nominated for a Global Spin Award (think Grammys for DJs) and will go up against heavyweights Diplo and DJ Snake for the honors.
