Ben UFO - Ruffage Sessions




Ben UFO is one of my favourite DJs; consistently choosing quality music to build great sets on Sub FM's Ruffage Sessions( Thursdays 8-10pm GMT ).
Ben hasn't visited these shores in a while, but surely the time is ripe. On his last visit to Dublin he played a great set of UKG, Grime and Dubstep, providing an education of sorts to a Dublin audience for many of whom the route to Dubstep was without any real reference points to 2 Step or early Grime.

On this session from last week, he brings the Funky vibe to the table with tracks such as 'Yellowtail' from Geeneus' Volumes 1 EP, along with the House, Garage and new Dubstep tracks from talent like Brackles, along with absolute killers along the lines of 'Knife and Gun'.

It's selections like this( along with This One,
This One
.. and many others that made 2008 such a positive year - maybe not for everyone, but hasn't a lot of cream risen?

Got mine last week Clom! Its an absolute stonker, love the zomby oddness with the 140 funky-ish rhythm. Tasty as fook. Have u heard his new one?

clom said...

the hyperdub double pack?
didn't think it was out yet.
you need to be so fast with the zomby stuff- sells out so fast!

cólz said...

yes indeed...they posted it out yesterday tho, pre-ordered it just in case. The boys a wonktastic genius.

this is one of the best mixes of the year. the resurgence of those old garagey sounds has been one of the most gratifying subplots in the later part of 08.

everyone i've played that zomby record agrees it's got massive crossover potential.
