‘Basic NYC Presents Ben Sims’


He’s known for the cold, hard techno also pumped out by fellow Brits Surgeon and Regis, but Ben Sims seems to have a secret line to Chicago jack that he hasn’t let his peers in on. Or maybe it’s his early love for hip-hop that’s responsible for that touch of funk—his unreleased internet hip-hop mix a few years back definitely proved that Sims and his three turntables can deliver a tight, cathartic time in any genre. With Todd Fatjo and residents Sleepy & Boo.
