About Ben Sims
With over 20 years experience under his belt, Ben Sims has a well-deserved reputation as one of the world’s most in-demand and leading techno DJs – a tight, energetic mixer who skilfully weaves together his own distinctive blend of tough funk and hardgrooves, often using three-deck wizardry and plenty of dexterity, with appearances at clubs such as Fabric London, Florida 135, Berghain, and Atomic Jam. 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.
A seasoned producer, with over 50 releases to his name, Ben also runs labels such as Theory and Hardgroove, plus is co-founder of ‘new-techno’ concept clubnnight Machine, and curator of the “Sims & Friends” events.
