Producer, composer, sound designer and DJ Ben Hayes' skilled musicianship and sonic understanding conjures bright colours, shapes, textures and even spaces within the stereo spectrum. With formal training in jazz as his foundation, Ben has accumulated influences from the LA beat scene, techno, IDM/electronica, spiritual jazz and 3D sound, citing Flying Lotus, Aphex Twin, Alice Coltrane, Juan Atkins, Pharoah Sanders and Blawan as current inspirations. Equipped with a broad range of studio skills (including making his own tools for software) and an ability to play keys plus electric/double bass, he’s been deep amidst the South London scene since it began, watching others rise whilst patiently honing his craft. Ben has been called upon by an impressive list of talent, which includes producing for Puma Blue, Poppy Ajudha, Oscar Jerome and Maisha, collaborating with Nubya Garcia, Joe Armon-Jones and Maxwell Owin, and remixing Vök, Flamingods and SumoChief. His See Sun EP will be released on R&S Records March 29th
