Bassben – Reset
This week’s mix scratches that drum and bass itch the RIPEcast gets every now and then. It comes from our own DJ Bassben, and about it he says:
When things go wrong, and you don’t quite know how to fix them, your best bet is probably to power down and reboot. That’s what I had in mind when put this drum n’ bass mix together. It’s meant to take you out of time, into your mind, and back onto the dancefloor. So take a breath. Unplug. Reload. And push RESET. – DJ Bassben
Ben’s DJ career started in 1999 with a drum and bass radio show on KCSU, the student-run radio station at his alma mater Colorado State. He was the resident junglist at a weekly event in a Fort Collins club called Static circa 2002-2003. He discovered a love of breaks when he came to San Francisco years later, and eventually joined up with the infamous Space Cowboys. Whether you hear him playing soulful dnb, cut-up breaks, or moody melodic chill stuff, you’re sure to hear something you like.
