Ben Marcus – Don’t Stop


A tasty selection from Ben Marcus:

“I am Chicago based DJ who still plays exclusively vinyl records and takes pride in creating the smoothest blends. The way I think of my sets, and much like the way I put “Don’t Stop” together, is to conjure that natural energy of a live band playing deep in the groove. I mix tracks that bring a pop oriented dance song into a funky instrumental and then into deeper electronic space. (In this mix I would say that happens with the Hot Chip into the following two songs). I play Disco because it can have everything I love about electronic dance music, but with a warm human live instrumental feel. Especially a lot of the newer stuff thats coming out. Its like I DJ as if I was the ultimate cover band!”
