Ben Holtam aka DJ BenG



Ben began DJing when he was 14 and as soon as he could, he upgraded to a set of Technic 1200s and never looked back.

At that time, he was into hip hop and used to perform as part of the Flava crew around Plymouth and the South West. From there, he became interested in the origins of this form of music. He got into funk, soul, RnB & jazz as well as all the sampled roots of that golden age of hip hop. He also DJ’ed with Jelly Jazz as well as several specialist club nights around Cornwall, Devon, Manchester & London.

Around the end of the 90s, he began to listen to house music & finally settled on his style after being heavily influenced by his house music hero, Danny Rampling who was playing on Radio 1 each week. “The Love Groove Dance Party was and still is a constant source of influence & inspiration” says Ben. Since then, it’s been deep and soulful house music all the way.

Ben is always on the lookout for guest DJs to provide a 60 minute mix for the show so message him if you fit the bill. “I’m also looking for any producers, artists or remixers who want to get their tunes played should get in touch so that I can feature your music”.
