Afterhours Anonymous & Mother Earth Sound System present
Ben UFO & KiNK @ CMKY 2014
Saturday, April 12, Boulder, CO
Bulgaria / Ovum / Rush Hour / liebe*detail
#3 in RA Poll: Top 20 live acts of 2013
Strahil Velchev a.k.a KiNK is not Josh Wink’s brother, he isn’t Aphex Twin’s room mate and definitely not Larry Heard’s son. He is simply an innovative, uncompromising producer and captivating DJ / live performer from Bulgaria, who incorporates the best examples of the underground dance music in his production.
At the age of 12 – jumping up & down to acid, techno and early rave tracks; at 20 – his touch with the fist modular software synthesizer and couple of years later – his first vinyl release. These are a few things that shape KiNK as an accomplished electronic artist with his own signature sound. “Take the soul and the groove of house and techno, the futurism and detail of experimental electronica and the raw energy of acid” – this is how he defines his style.
UK [3 HR DJ SET] / Hessle Audio
#35 in RA Poll: Top 20 Compilations of 2011
Ben UFO founded Hessle Audio with Ramadanman and Pangaea in 2007. Having become immersed in the still emerging dubstep scenes in London and Leeds in 2005, as BPMs have dropped and influences have broadened, so too has the vision of Ben UFO's DJing. He remains one of the few DJs in the UK to have made an impact without a production career to fall back on, and as such his reputation is solely the result of his skill as a selector and as a mixer. As a result he remains in a position to fully explore sounds both old and new, across the worlds of house and garage, dubstep and grime, and further into the past.
In addition to well received podcasts in magazines and websites as varied as Resident Advisor, XLR8R, Red Bull Music Academy and Fact Magazine, 2011 was the year that Ben UFO entered the world of commercially released mix CDs, and he was placed #35 in a Resident Advisor readers’ poll to find the years best DJ. It’s a result which reflects Ben UFO’s ability to successfully present unfamiliar, experimental dance music to a diverse variety of audiences worldwide.
Ben UFO plays from 9PM - 11PM on RinseFM (www.rinse.fm / 106.8FM in London) every Thursday night.
