05 Apr 2012

Saffire Pro 24 DSP DJ Ben UFOBen Thomson aka Ben UFO is a DJ and co-founder of the Hessle Audio record label. Having started the label in 2007 with Dave Kennedy (aka Ramadanman/Pearson Sound/one-slash-the-other) and Kevin McAuley (aka Pangaea), he has gone on to become an internationally renowned DJ and hosts a regular show on London's Rinse FM. He and his label were, and continue to be, instrumental to the development of dubstep.

Despite not producing music himself, Ben has been using the Saffire LE as his interface and recently upgraded to the Saffire Pro 24 DSP:

"I'm just using it pretty much in the most straightforward way possible, to check demos/mixdowns and to record vinyl and mixes cleanly. It's a big improvement from the LE I was using before."

Ben released a compilation on the Rinse FM label last year ( and continues to present The Hessle Audio show which broadcasts on on the first and third Thursdays of each month from 11pm – 1am.
