London based DJ Ben UFO is considered one of the most visionary DJs of today's UK garage-bass and post-dubstep scenes. Having founded the label titled Hessle Audio in 2007 with David Kennedy who uses the moniker Pearson Sound and Kevin McAuley who uses the moniker Pangaea, Ben UFO released the early records of many esteemed names such as James Blake, Untold, Objekt and Blawan.

Co-hosting the weekly Hessle Audio program at Rinse FM with Kennedy, Ben UFO is a DJ who finds the unexpected beauty among the combination of various genres in his adventurous sets. Not busying himself with producing or remixing in order to focus solely on his career as a DJ, UFO released his debut mix album RA.238  in 2010. After that, he released another mix album Rinse: 16 in 2011. The third mix album titled Fabriclive 67 came two years later, in 2013.

Also Ben UFO was nominated DJ Award for Best Breakthrough.
