Ben Sims, actually Ben Stocker, is a techno DJ and producer from London.
From early formative days earning his stripes spinning hip hop, house and rave on pirate radio, and at parties around Essex and East London, through the 90’s as an ever more in demand DJ, and on into the new millennium as a label boss, producer and internationally recognised techno legend in his own right, Ben Sims has spent all his conscious life exploring all facets of underground dance music.
Throughout that time, the man has honed his reputation as a tight, energetic mixer who skillfully weaves together his own distinctive blend of tough funk and hard grooves, often using three-deck wizardry and plenty of dexterity. Be it at clubs like Fabric London, Atomic Jam, Berghain, Florida 135, or any number of festivals around the world, Sims’ sets are powerful, memorable, and unique, while constantly pushing the boundaries of a DJ set – utilising a mesmerizing blend of vinyl, CDs, and software. As well as carving a reputation as one of the world’s leading techno DJs, Ben has curated many of his own revered labels over the years.
