DJ Big Ben
Hailing from Brooklyn, Big Ben is a prominent name in the New York club circuit, having mastered moving the crowd at an early age. Ben was inspired to be a DJ by his older brother, a disco DJ. He deejayed his first club at the age of 14, and by 19, he broke into the NYC nightlife scene, where he caught the attention of some of the most exclusive party promoters and record label reps in the business.
Ben’s career skyrocketed when he was invited to be the tour DJ and hype man for famed radio personality, Angie Martinez. Well known and respected by his peers, Ben was approached by DJ Enuff in 2007, and was invited to become a member of the Heavy Hitters, one of the most influential DJ crews in the entertainment industry. After his induction, Ben became a mixer on New York’s premiere hip-hop radio station, HOT 97.
Big Ben is currently a resident DJ at hot spots 1OAK and Avenue in New York and Wall in Miami. Since 2008, Ben has done an annual Japan & China tour, spinning at the hottest clubs alongside some of the biggest DJs in those markets. His energetic club mixes have been requested by some of the most well-known celebrities in the world including Lenny Kravitz, 50 Cent, and Sean “Diddy” Combs. In 2013, Ben had the opportunity to DJ Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday party at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas.
