Ben Mono is an artist whose diversity has always commanded its own stylistic path. As a producer and DJ his unique framework of sound is always open to new influences and a wide range of directions.
He is counted as one of the few musicians today who is a convincing mediator being constantly in a transition between styles.
Based in Berlin now, the artist who is originally from Munich, is active on various platforms such as Ed Banger, Gomma, Compost, Exploited, Permanent Vacation, Top Billin´ and Boysnoize Records. All the while Ben Mono loves understatement, he simply does not want to hide behind a bunch of project names.
Gavin Royce met Sam Walker ten years ago at a loft party in Brooklyn. They both had internships for Studio Distribution, threw parties together and shared a few drinks. Their dedication to the dance music scene was evident and they both were looking for ways to be involved. In 2011 the pair found themselves again working together, this time at NYC's house stronghold, Nervous Records.Since then they have released records on Crosstown Rebels, Glasgow Underground, Dither Down, Pets Recordings and more.
