Benji Boko lives in our hometown of Brighton where his style of music is shaped by the records he finds in some of the second hand shops & flea markets. His latest live show has been rocking clubs and festivals the past year – from Rockness to V-Festival & Ibiza to Amsterdam, including a midnight slot at the O2 arena NYE 2009-10. In his own words it’s “on the fly, off the cuff, completely improvised live remixing.” We’re talking Mozart vs. Missy, Dizzee vs. Depeche Mode and Snoop vs. Simpsons, just to name a few. Crowds are being transported from the ‘norm’ into a world of pure imagination.

A carefully selected, strategically planned series of samplers, sequencers and switches form the backbone of Boko’s arsenal. A complex set-up to say the least but ready to take out any dancefloor.

Not afraid to strip down to the bare essentials, he is equally as confident behind two turntables. Honoring classics from the past and inventively mixing them with gems from the present has earned his DJ set the label “a futuristic masterpiece.” Bungalow 8, London’s notorious celebrity hideout and Ibiza’s luxurious Atzarro are testimony to this.

He is equally as animated in the studio producing his debut album set for release in 2010. Having collaborated with Maxi Jazz (Faithless) and Roots Manuva, the future looks good. His first single “The Jungle V.I.P” jumped straight to No. 16 in the iTunes electronic charts and received countless radio airplay across the globe. As well as the single being used on BBC & iTV he has worked on music for numerous TV commercials such as Motorola, Kellogs and Guiness. His debut album “Beats, Treats & All Things Unique” (Tru Thoughts) is out now.
