For the past 20 years Ben Mono was active on various cutting edge and genre defining platforms. His music has been signed by Defected, Strictly Rhythm, Permanent Vacation, Stil Vor Talent, Toy Tonics, Compost, Exploited, Ed Banger, Dim Mak and Boysnoize Records – to name a few.
While calling Berlin Techno-city his home, he has manifested a strong connection with the British scene through a series of UK Garage events. With his Operate nights at Griessmühle Ben Mono runs the only parties strictly covering the UKG genre in Berlin. What started as a one off about 5 years ago has evolved into a label and a producer team. Together with TMSN the first Operate release just came out on vinyl: „Sweet Talk“ is a cooperation with the London based imprint Dim Sum Records.
Ben Mono has performed at festivals like Sonar and Sziget with such diverse acts as Modeselektor, Booka Shade, Henrik Schwarz, Santigold, Diplo, A-Trak, DJ T, Carl Craig, Dizzee Rascal, Booka Shade amongst others.
Oscillating around the globe, his recent DJ shows have taken him to the US and South America, Siberia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Asia and Australia.
