Exclusive interview for SWU Magazine


Here is the exclusive interview Lex an I did for the brand new magazine from SWU which hits the shops today.

One thing than can definitely be said about Ben and Lex, they certainly are very, very busy boys. DJing and producing collectively for over 10 years. This pair have certainly ticked a lot off their ever more ambitious musical 'to do' list. Producing a back catalog of awesome tunes, launching and successfully running their own record label Ape music. Within their home grown record label finding time to nurture new talent under their creative well and truly gigged wings. As well as produce their own tracks and remixed an abundance of masterpieces.

Offering up probably the best live breakbeat sets in the South West. Ben and Lex are certainly well traveled playing with International DJs such as Rennie Pilgrem, Freq Nasty and The Freestylers along the way. Being unofficially crowned King and errm King of South West Breakbeat Ben and Lex have quite a collection of awards.
Bagging awards 2 years running at the South West drum n bass awards for 'Best Breaks DJ' and 'Outstanding Contribution to the Breaks scene' as well as a Breakspoll for their bi-weekly radio show.

With this being the very first issue of SWU Magazine we thought it was only fair to ask these two local legends a few questions.
