BEN BAKSON EXPLOSIVE TALENT!

His incendiary career made him one of the most important artists in the gay circuit scene in the blink of an eye. Now, he is one of the most demanded DJs in the industry, performing in the best events around the world. Let’s talk to him and find out the secret of his success.

Tell us some of your best experiences. What performances will you never forget?

I am lucky to play on the best Parties and Festivals of the world. So it’s really not easy to select a number 1. I love the XLSIOR Festival in Mykonos, where I am proud Resident of. I love to play all over the US, which is my Number 1 Market worldwide. Also Middle and South America are always a pleasure to play because of its unique energy. In Europe Madrid is my big favorite to play and my Number 1 city worldwide.

You have been number one in the industry for many years… How has the music of the gay circuit evolved? Where is it going now?

Number one for some yes, but I would not consider myself as Number 1 worldwide in our scene, but I am proud and happy to play in the first league. I am listening very attentive to what`s happening in the global music world. I see a big trend coming which combines gay and straight world in music taste and in parties. Therefore I work on my songs being clean, with catchy melody and high energy which pleases many ears and attracts a large group of people.

What were your musical references?

I love my Israeli and Brazilian colleagues very much and get often inspired by their music. I actually like a combination of both.

Do you like to collaborate? Which industry artists do you admire? Who would you like to work with that you haven't done yet?

With my last original Track "Ain`t Moving On" I worked together with the amazing Caddy and Duncan James, who is lead singer of the world famous boy group "Blue". Definitely my big favorit so far of all projects. Furthermore I did already official Remixes for Ava Max. There are many talented Singers I would love to work with. My favorites are JLO, Madonna, Ariana Grande. Let`s see what the future brings.

You have performed on five continents ... is there a difference between one audience and another? Which prefer?

Oh yes the audience is completely different. Even easy to see by countries not only continents. What united them is the love to my music. Still I think it`s very important to adapt as DJ to your crowd that`s why I never fully prepare a set.

No? So how do you do it?

I have a selection of let`s say 10h music prepared for a party and then play usually 2h out of that selection.

How would you define your musical style?

Happy. Melodic, Energetic

Why did you decide to be a DJ?

I always loved music. I never planned to become a DJ; I just started as a hobby and turned it into profession.
