London’s Ben UFO started out on pirate radio station Sub FM in 2007, playing dubstep alongside friends, producers and DJs Pangaea and Pearson Sound. After being sent new music every week, the trio started the Hessle Audio label that same year, through which they joined the dots of the UK underground between house, techno, jungle and drum & bass as the global dubstep scene was exploding. Since then, Ben has graduated to a fortnightly show on flagship London radio station Rinse FM and a near-constant touring schedule. In this talk at the 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo, he touched on the label’s early days, making the weird accessible and outsider house.
