2017 was the year that saw Ben Rainey’s music become an essential part of every DJs set, from Saturday nights, student events and across radio stations globally.
His creative, hard hitting, floor filling remixes, covers and edits have provided Ben with some serious airtime with support coming thick & fast from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s MistaJam, chart topper & Kiss FM’s very own James Hype and Ministry of Sound’s Friday & Saturday night takeover on Capital FM amongst many others.
His high energy DJ sets stand out due to his effortless ability to seamlessly mix across genre boundaries utilizing up to 4 decks at any time. Ben has a very strong command of the crowd with immense microphone skills combined with an uplifting presence in the DJ booth.
On the road, Ben’s jet fueled life style has led to headline sets in Ibiza, Dubai and Belgium where he has performed at venues such as Ocean Beach Club for SIN Sundays, at Zero Gravity where he has performed alongside Claptone, Roger Sanchez & Disciples and for the official afterparty for Europe’s biggest dance festival, Tomorrowland. On home soil, Ben continues to hold down main room residencies at Mission & Space in Leeds respectively alongside a regular weekly event at The Birdcage in Manchester.
As for the future & having already collected over 5 million worldwide plays across his music to date, alongside a very strong & growing social media presence, you can expect to hear a lot more original material, official remixes & covers as Ben continues to live for his labour of love, 24/7, in the studio, recording, writing, mixing and performing live.
With all of what is yet to come, it’s no wonder that industry heads are labelling Ben Rainey ‘One To Watch’.
