    CLR Podcast 214 – Ben Sims

    It is Monday the 1st of April 2013 and we welcome back a returning guest and legendary Techno artist on the CLR Podcast. Ben Sims is a dj, producer, label head and event organizer who has spent basically all of his conscious life exploring different 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. He is a prolific producer who 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, which have been released on some of the most popular and credible labels in the scene. After releasing his debut long player Smoke & Mirrors in 2011 on Drumcode, Ben is currently on another studio lockdown working on a new album, that´s also why the present mix features lots of brand new and unreleased material, plus some exclusive edits and plenty of rarities and oddities.
