Ben Gold (UK)
Polarflash & Inch
At just 25 years old Ben Gold is one of the most multi-talented names in the electronic dance scene. Ben combines a highly acclaimed career as a leading studio engineer with that of one of the brightest young stars in the trance scene, playing at some of the world's leading clubs alongside world class DJ's who all regularly fill their CD wallets with his latest works.
A versatile producer who has seen tracks featured on leading compilations such as Ministry Of Sound's Trance Nation Harder, Trance Nation Deeper and Europe's biggest dance compilation, Dream Dance. As well as regularly winning plaudits such as Armin Van Buuren's 'Tune Of The Week', Above and Beyond's 'Tune of the Week' and often featured in Mixmag as their 'Tune Of The Month', Ben's productions are also consistently featured on leading radio stations such as Radio 1, Galaxy and on leading radio shows, including ASOT by Armin van Buuren, Club Life by Tiesto and TATW by Above and Beyond.
Ben's productions are played by DJs as far reaching as Armin van Buuren to Sander Van Doorn, Paul van Dyk to Marco V, leading to plaudits such as “Ben Gold is a talented young producer and definitely one to watch out for in the future”, by none other than Paul Oakenfold! Recent releases such as collaboration with Senadee, 'Say the Words' picked up ASOT tune of the week, Mixmag tune of the month whilst 'Life' was picked by world number one DJ Armin van Buuren as not only Future Favourite on ASOT but also Tune of the Week.
After spending the majority of 2009 writing, producing and engineering tracks for other major artists, Ben Gold launched his new guise 'Be:Gold', and delivered “Starstruck and “Sunstroke” which became festival favourites with Armin, Tiesto & Gareth Emery. Ben's remix of Andy Moor & Ashley Walbridge - Faces gave him complete global recognition which led Armin to quote "He is really on fire right now".
Recent DJ appearances have led Ben all over the globe including notable sets at The Sunrise Festival in Poland, The Fresh Squeezed Festival in Los Angeles USA), Garuda at Sankeys (UK), Twisted in Vancouver (Canada) & Slinky at The Opera House (UK). This multi faceted DJ and producer will bring a breath of fresh air to a scene which demands the same high quality and excellence that Ben has regularly achieved even at such a young age, the only way is to the very top.
