1972年ロンドン生まれ。10代半ばで既にクラブでプレイをし、16才の時にテクノと出会う。96年よりDJ活動を開始、98年には自らが中心となって立ち上げた高評価を受け、一躍テクノシーンにその存在を知らしめる事となる。等々レーベルを立ち上げると共に、2000年には当時のイギリスで最も勢いのあったレーベルからリリースしたが大ヒット。ラテン・サンバ調のパーカッションを主体としたハード・テクノ・スタイルがBEN SIMSのサウンドとして定着していき、その色を濃く打ち出すレーベルもスタートさせた。その後もDJ SHUFFLEMASTER、ADAM BEYER、OLIVER HOといった一流のテクノ・アーティスト達と組み数々の作品をリリース。2011 年にはKirk Degiorgio とレーベルを設立、ロンドンにて同名でパーティーも開始し、今ではパリやオーストラリアでも開催されるほどの人気パーティーとなっている。CDJ4台を駆使し、縦フェーダ―を自由自在に操るミックスワークと矢継ぎ早に数々のトラックを繋いでいくDJプレイはあまりにも有名。



From early formative days earning his stripes spinning hip hop, house and rave on pirate radio, and at parties around Essex and East London, through the 90’s as an ever more in demand DJ, and on into the new millennium as a label boss, producer and internationally recognised techno legend in his own right, Ben Sims has spent all his conscious life exploring all facets of underground dance music

Throughout that time, the man has honed his reputation as a tight, energetic mixer who skilfully weaves together his own distinctive blend of tough funk and hardgrooves, often using three-deck wizardry and plenty of dexterity. Be it at clubs like Fabric London, Atomic Jam, Berghain, Florida 135, or any number of festivals around the world, Sims’ sets are powerful, memorable, and unique, while constantly pushing the boundaries of a DJ set – utilising a mesmerizing blend of vinyl, CDs, and software.

As well as carving a reputation as one of the world’s leading techno DJs, Ben has curated many of his own revered labels over the years. Chief amongst them is Theory – an imprint this year celebrating it’s 40th release, that counts amongst it’s supporters contemporary connoisseurs like Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, and the old guard of Dave Clarke, Robert Hood, Rolando and more – proof, then, that Sims is on the form of his life production wise.

Riding high on the wave of critical acclaim from his cultured debut long player on Drumcode, 2011’s Smoke & Mirrors, an album that voyages into Sim’s unique take on techno, coupled with authentic house outings, thanks to guest appearances from Chicago’s Tyree Cooper and Detroit’s Blake Baxter, whilst also showcasing plenty of dubbed-out and grainy textures.

Sims has put his name to more than 50 releases in the last two decades. During those years, there has also been a steady stream of high profile remixes of scene heavyweights, including Jeff Mills, Adam Beyer, Kevin Saunderson and Chris Liebing, on labels du jour like AXIS, KMS, CLR and Drumcode, all of which have won as much critical praise as they have crossover success.

Despite his veteran status in the scene, Sims has always been keen to evolve. Alongside Kirk Degiorgio, he is co-founder & curator of Machine – a clubnight which focuses on new, unreleased, & upfront music; it’s primary home in London, but with editions all across Europe each year. Ben also hosts Sims & Friends events and stages at top clubs and festivals across Europe. Such shows incorporate Killa Productions sets with long time associate Paul Mac and feature regular appearances from like-minded talents such as Surgeon and others.
