Take in Ben UFO’s RBMA Tokyo lecture


The Hessle Audio co-founder and “people’s DJ” covers the foundation of the label, his relationship with radio, making weird music accessible and more.

The recent Tokyo edition of the Red Bull Music Academy offered up perhaps the most diverse selection of lectures so far, with Holly Herndon, Fatima Al Qadiri, Tom Tom Club, Floating Points and Robert Hood among the artists invited to speak. We are pleased to offer the first chance to take in the second term lecture from Hessle Audio’s Ben UFO, whose 90-minute discussion with host Lauren Martin is as considered and insightful as you would expect, featuring revelations on Bruce’s true identity, the “outsider house debacle” and bad gigs.
