Culture Box welcomes two young legends, Ben UFO and Courtesy, to Black Box on this night, playing two independent sets as well as a B2B-session.
Ben UFO (UK)
The name is not a coincidence. Ben UFO is drawn to outer space, and he claims that truly good music always has a sense of something ’alien’. Throughout his almost ten years at Rinse FM, and at clubs all over the world, he has continued to discover how to unite ’alien’ tracks and dancefloor bangers into a coherent mix, and boy, has he found the formula. Ben UFO started his career on the bass heavy UK stage, particularly in drum’n’bass and dubstep, but since then he has dwelved into a much broader definition of electronic music, the mantra seeming to be that good music isn’t confined to any one genre or time period. The result is a DJ who not only knows how to find quality music, but also how to perform in an otherworldy way.
While Danish techno is celebrating a fair bit of attention and hype abroad these days, one of the characters who deserve the most praise for this warranted attention is Apeiron Crew and especially Courtesy. Following the success of the DJ squad, she started the trend-setting Copenhagen-based label Ectotherm, and has since brought her challenging techno sets to club meccas such as Berghain and De School. Her music is a far cry from festival EDM and flat beers – Courtesy’s sets plug into your mind and not just your feet. We are proud to invite Courtesy back once again, cause while the rest of the world is only starting to comprehend the genious of Courtesy, Copenhagen has known for years that we have a star in our midst.
Red Box will be hosted by Mikkel Ulriksen who owns the label International Sun-Earth Explorer and Jeppe Willumsen, who is part of the duo Wilma.
