Ben Fester

28/05/2021

Few faces and names in the electronic music community exude as much class and energy as Sydney based DJ, Heavenly party boss and producer, Ben Fester. As one of the electronic undergrounds’ most prized possessions, you’d be hard pressed to find a selector more worthy of ‘wall of fame’ status – if one existed for our tight knit community. Ben’s formidable taste, expansive record collection and deep understanding of what a dancefloor wants has seen him grace the helm of the best local and international parties for quite some time. It therefore comes as no surprise that his debut EP ‘Lock Box’ out today on local label Paper-Cuts, presents to us a refined yet varied sound of which is only possible with years of tinkering behind the scenes. Ben’s tracks have been under lock and key for some time now, so it gives me great joy to help push these beautiful works into the world, where they deserve to be enjoyed by the masses. Playful, clean and atmospheric tracks with an undercurrent of bad boy bounce that you’d come to expect from Sydney’s cheekiest. Ben Fester joined me for a special radio festival edition of Passing Notes (episode 116) with an interview and guest mix to boot.
