Ben Micklewright or BLM has been involved in the Dance music scene since his father first bought him his first set of turntables. At the age of 15, while hooked on UK Garage, he went to work for one of the UKs best independent record shops (Massive Records), which would prove to be a great introduction into the world of house music.
After four years at Massive Records Ben made the move to Nottingham to study sound engineering, it was during this time that he started to define his unique sound drawing influences from his UK Garage roots, leading to digital releases on Leftnet and Year of the Machine. As well as producing, his time in Nottingham also allowed him to DJ at the legendary Bomb and Stealth.
Five years on and with a move to London, Ben has been busy setting up and co running up and coming label Fear of Flying with long-term friend Jay Massive. The labels success has been rising with keen support from the likes of Luciano, Raresh, Steve Bug, Loco Dice, Craig Richards and Terry Francis. Future releases from Schatrax, Leif, Pawas and BLM will ensure the label’s success will only grow.
BLM & Jay Massive is supported by husband and wife production & DJ duo, Sahin Meyer, Juno Plus editor Aaron Coultate and Tulani.
