Download Ben UFO's Set from Dekmantel Festival
- Words: Kat Leinhart
Earlier this month, XLR8R attended the second edition of Amsterdam's Dekmantel Festival and dubbed it one of the year's best, with Hessle Audio co-founder Ben UFO ranking among the event's top 10 standout sets. For those who missed the chance to catch him live (or as a souvenir for the ones lucky enough to be there in person), a large portion of the UK selector's set is now available to stream and download in full. The nearly two-hour recording was made during Ben UFO's appearance on the Dekmantel Selectors stage, which also played host to the likes of Optimo, DJ Harvey, DVS1, and Gerd Janson vs. Prins Thomas, and shifts easily among varied takes on house, techno, garage, and more. While no tracklist is on offer, the full mix can be heard and downloaded below.
