With last year’s Top Ten single What I Might Do still proving to be a club favourite, British DJ and producer Ben Pearce’s mix of deep house with elements of hip-hop, electronica, soul and metal place him as a real original of the dance music scene.
To many, Ben Pearce’s name is synonymous with What I Might Do, his oddly anthemic deep-house debut that dominated club floors across the world in 2012, whilst garnering support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Heidi and Pete Tong. Whilst this is an easy correlation to make (the track went platinum in Europe after all), those who have followed him since the beginning can testify that he is so much more than that, and the coming months will definitely see him come into his own.
Ben is very much an underground DJ first-and-foremost, aided in no small part by his vast musical knowledge and the ability to play across a wide range of musical genres. His skills behind the decks have not gone un-noticed, as shown by high-profile sets alongside the likes of Seth Troxler, Eats Everything, and Theo Parrish.
He’s also becoming increasingly known for his remixing abilities, and the coming year will see him lending his deft touch to the likes of Le Youth, Redlight and Chris Malinchak. There is also exciting new solo material on the horizon, as well as an increasingly busy tour schedule that will take him across Europe and more.
Not one to sit on his laurels, 2013 sees Ben Pearce drive forward with the conviction and certitude of someone who knows his dominance of clubland has only just begun…
