ABOUT JOY ORBISON
Bursting onto the scene with 2009’s Hyph Mngo, Joy Orbison has gone from strength to strength in recent years, spearheading a generation of producers merging diverse elements from dubstep, house and garage to devastating effect. With a host of acclaimed releases for the likes of Hotflush, AUS and Doldrums, the production alias of Peter O’Grady has quickly become one of the most respected names around.
ABOUT BEN UFO
As one of the co-founders of Hessle Audio, Ben UFO has been responsible, alongside Pearson Sound and Pangaea, for some of the most varied and groundbreaking releases of recent years. His musical taste was shaped primarily by the DMZ and Sub Dub nights taking place in London and Leeds.
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.
