Mancunian House wonderkid BEN PEARCE makes his first Belfast appearance for Stiff Kitten debutant hosts, SCHMUTZ on Saturday 30th March. The 23-year-old DJ and Producer was identified as 'One To Watch' in 2013 by Mixmag following widespread attention he drew with his debut single, ‘What I Might Do’ which was hammered by DJ's across globe. Since that initial breakthrough, Ben has went on tour of the UK, playing headline shows at ubercool venues such as Sub Club, XOYO and Canal Mills, most of which have sold out.
Joining him on the night will be the night's hosts – Schmutz, the Belfast House duo who have recently put on much talked about sold out events with the likes of Brawther and Krystal Klear. 2013 looks set to be the year Pearce joins the big league so don't miss out!
Ben cut his teeth with many years running and DJ-ing for a successful night and is now producing records with an ever filling gig diary. With a childhood spent enjoying heavy metal and pop punk, he moved into electronic music in his late teens. His first full length EP within a few days reached No.4 in the Beatport Chart and No.2 on the Deep House Chart. The track has been highly supported by Solomun, Seth Troxler, David August, Jamie Jones, Maya Jane Coles, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Maxxi Soundsystem to name but a few.
The “What I Might Do” EP landed on MTA Records/Under The Shade on 01.10.12 with remixes from Adam Shelton, Bonar Bradberry (PBR Streetgang & Harry Wolfman). A remix for swedish band Sailor & I was released for a free download via his facebook page in June, several remixes are forthcoming for Southern Fried Records, Under The Shade and Bridge The Gap. With an original follow up coming out on Purp & Soul’s Various Artists Album. In late 2011, Ben was made Creative Director at Purp & Soul; an already established brand by friend Chris Farnworth. Together they have formed a label which is going from strength to strength forging family ties with 6 artists so far on the roster. Showcases have sold out in this country and abroad and their label continues to build momentum.
