Noise of Art presents Ben Osborne
08:00-12:00 Fishers Gin Beach Club
Sunday 19 June
First Light regular fixture Ben Osborne provides a morning mid-tempo set to accompany the Sunday Brunch Beach Feast.
Described as a “polymath” by Time Out, as well as DJing, Ben is an award winning creative producer, founder of Noise of Art (“an actual Cathedral of Sound” The Guardian) and writer.
Ben DJs internationally at festivals and clubs, including Latitude, Glastonbury, Sonar, Chateau Perché, The Great Escape, Berlin Music Week and MAMA Paris. He’s written two books, a history of club music and Omnibus’ biography of the Arctic Monkeys, and presented shows on Xfm, NME Radio and Slack City Radio. A multi genre artist, he pioneered late night music in galleries in London, immersive film experiences, and silent film and electronic music events in clubs, festivals and theatres.
Acts he’s worked with include Booka Shade, Coldcut, Aluna (George), Ashley Beedle, Orka, Red Snapper, Chris Coco, Jazzie B, Les Spaine, Leee John, Justin Robertson, Severino (Horse Meat Disco) and Laurent Garnier. As well as venues, he plays unusual places such as on top of BT Tower, Moulin Rouge, Tate, National Maritime Museum, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Glasgow Art School and National Portrait Gallery.
Ben’s eclectic style draws from London’s multi-genre tradition, delving into disco, funk, house, soul, psychedelia, jazz, D’n’B and post punk.
