Bio

Florian Nites, AKA DJ Ben Stacey started his music career as singer​/ guita​rist in Australian rock band Bodyjar in the late 90’s then went on to pursue a career in electronica, re-locating to London and then NYC between 1998 - 2001 to follow his musical passion.

Since then Ben has run and played at countless residencies in London, Melbourne and Sydney, including Turnmills (U.K), Revolver (Melb) and was part of Melbourne’s 33 1/3 DJ roster. Ben has opened shows for artists such as the Beastie Boys, Beck, James Lavelle, Jazzy Jeff, Grandmaster Flash, Mr Scruff, Stanton Warriors, Freest​ylers, Plump DJ’s, Krafty Kuts, Greg Wilson, Avalanches DJ’s, Nickodemus, DJ Spun and Recloose, among others.

“I like to weave an eclectic mix of assorted Electr​onica, Club, Tech House, Disco/Nu Disco and try to stay constantly busy, adding new textures and layers over the mix with samples, scratching, acapella’s and effects to give the tracks new life. All this comes quite naturally from my time spent performing in punk bands and watching hip hop crews back in Melbourne in the early 2000’s”, Ben explains.

Ben resides in Sydney playing various club nights and is currently working on new original material, re-edits and mixes from his home studio.
