Calling Berlin his home, the classically trained producer Ben Mono is originally from Munich. For the past 15 years he was active on various cutting edge and genre defining platforms such as Ed Banger, Gomma, Compost, Exploited, Permanent Vacation, Top Billin’, Stil Vor Talent and Boysnoize Records to finally come back to his roots and that music that has always been the main influence since day one: UK related clubmusic.
While calling Berlin Techno-city his home, the strong connection to the British scene now shows itself through his latest releases coming out on some of his favorite labels which are focusing on the more syncopated version of Housemusic: Strictly Rhythm, Simma Black and Kerri Chandler’s own Madtech Records.
Ben Mono has performed at festivals like Sonar and Sziget with such diverse acts as Modeselektor, Booka Shade, Jesse Rose, Henrik Schwarz, Santigold, Diplo, A-Trak, Yolanda Be Cool, DJ T, Carl Craig, Dizzee Rascal, Booka Shade and Digitalism amongst others.
Permanently oscillating around the globe, his recent DJ shows have taken him to the US and South America, Siberia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Asia and Australia, while still maintaining residencies in Sicily and Poland, and being a regular player in Berlin.
