Benjamin prides himself on being one of the UK's most underground, forward thinking DJs to arrive on the scene. His passion and dedication to the music is reflected by his ongoing desire and obsession to provide listeners with fresh unheard of material, It is a rarity to hear Buttons play a track on more than one occasion, spending most of his free time digging deep to find new artists and labels to constantly expand his knowledge of music. His priority is to take people on a spiritual journey through his exhilarating live sets, Mixing and manipulating the records in such a way that creates atmosphere as they blend together to create an energy filled continuous mix, that tells a story and creates a journey for his audience.
The name Benjamin Buttons came about through taking inspiration in sounds from the early days of house music and Disco which he has grown up listening to. With his mission to further develop this sound and make it his own, bringing something new to the scene by providing listeners with a fresh new insight to the current productions of new and improved underground grooves. Bringing a darker side to the funkyness through his highly intelligent track selection and also in his own productions.
To Benjamin it is not just about playing music, its about feeling the music, and understanding how a perfectly executed continuous mix of tracks can maintain a spiritual energy which in some cases, is unexplainable.
Benjamin has also studied music production at Point Blank College in London and is working very hard behind closed doors with his productions. With scheduled releases on highly established labels already receiving huge support from some of his favourite artists, his future is looking extremely bright!
