Created in Ferry and Markus’ respective hometowns of Rotterdam and Miami, Loops & Tings pays tribute to the original 1992 classic by Jens, and has been a highlight in both DJs’ sets over the past couple of months. From the Los Angeles ’12 release party at Avalon, to the Corsten’s Countdown 250downlo marathon in New York City, and from the A State of Trance 550 celebrations in Kiev, Miami and Den Bosch to Montreal’s Bal en Blanc, Loops & Tings has been devastating dancefloors around the globe.
Ben Santiago is one of the White Isle’s most prolific DJs. Since moving to Ibiza seven years ago he has held a number of enviable residencies and played for the biggest brands in the industry, including; Café del Mar, Cream, Pacha, Base Bar, El Divino, Ibiza Rocks, Cocoon, Amnesia, Es Vive, Manumission, and Hed Kandi – who have appointed him Ibiza resident for the third year running at their parties at Es Paradis in 2012. He is also an official A&R scout for Hed Kandi / Ministry of Sound, helping compile the music for their world famous compilations.
Internationally, Ben is musical director for Berlin Fashion Week and spins at fashion shows and private soirées for Dolce & Gabbana throughout Europe and Asia alongside saxophonist (and fiancée) Lovely Laura. The pair are also signed to Storm models and perform all over the world at exclusive events for A-list clients such as supermodel Eva Herzigova and Pink Floyd.
Appreciated for his truly Balearic approach (as showcased on his weekly Ministry Of Sound radio show and guest mix on Hed Kandi’s Beach House 2011), Ben is just as passionate spinning eclectic sets at villa and beach parties or on catwalks and yachts as he is delivering straight up house tunes in a club. His success is based on a simple premise: “Whatever the genre, if a track is going to connect with the audience then I’ll play it…”.
