VENT have done it again. The Downtown hotspot have created something of a reputation for attracting and showcasing artists and DJs from Egypt and all over the world, but few are bigger than the man, the myth, the certified G himself, Ben UFO.
Voted in at number 7 on Resident Advisor’s Best DJ reader’s poll for 2014, the co-founder of London-based label/cool-dude-collective, Hessle Audio, along with Pearson Sound and Pangaea, and a resident DJ on London’s Rinse FM, Mr. UFO has managed to make a name for himself on the UK music scene without ever having released a track.
This has allowed him to concentrate solely on creating the bangingest (what do you meant that’s not a word?) sets and track lists in London. He also has over 25,000 followers on SoundCloud - a remarkable figure considering he has never posted anything.
Check it out on Thursday 29th of January for a long night of house, garage, dubstep, grime and whatever else enters the mind of one of the most exciting DJs to come to Egypt in a long time, with VENT resident, 1127, also on the line-up.
A limited number of passes are available for pickup from VENT - e-mail RSVPVentCairo@gmail.com.
