BEN HEMSLEY RADIATES BALEARIC GROOVES IN ‘ERASE ME’

Listen to: Ben Hemsley ‘Erase Me’

Transporting the listener into a hedonistic realm, Ben’s latest offering is a nostalgia-infused summer anthem that transcends both time and genre. Adorned with Balearic elements, sun-drenched melodies and Ben’s signature nod to pre-2000s trance, ‘Erase Me’ finds a delicate balance between power and elegance and will create magic moments for dancefloors all over the globe. 

Speaking about the release, Ben said,

“‘Erase Me’ is a very special track for me. I make all sorts of records from Techno to Rave, but when I make Trance records it’s always very important for me to make a track that feels authentic, like it can stand the test of time. And with ‘Erase Me’, I think I’ve done just that.”

SUPPORT

Standing out from the masses with his daring and captivating productions, Newcastle-based DJ and producer Ben Hemsley is a force to be reckoned with. Synonymous with luring melodies and old school rave flavours, Ben’s originality has turned the heads of some of the biggest names in the scene, including Patrick Topping, Calvin Harris, Fisher, Michael Bibi, Tiesto, Solardo, Eli Brown, Fatboy Slim, Deborah De Luca and many more. His tantalising skills as a producer came to light in 2021 when, after hits ‘Through 2 You’, Bebe Musica’, ‘Love, Peace & Harmony’ & more, Ben became the pinup boy for BBC Radio 1. Accolades included a nomination for Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Radio 1 Dance Awards, A Hottest Dance Record In The World, Playlist additions, multiple tracks of the week & more. 

HOTTEST DJ

Away from the studio, Ben Hemsley maintains an astounding touring schedule. It’s safe to say since the pandemic lifted, Ben’s hard work has paid off  as he’s now touted as one of the hottest tickets in the UK and beyond. Ben sold out his first headline show at Newcastle’s Lofts Club in 20 minutes, the fastest sellout the club has ever seen. He went on to sell out further headline shows in Liverpool, Leeds, Belfast and a score of other key cities across the UK, not to mention a 6 date Scotland tour which was also sold out. However, Ben’s outstanding performance to date came in the form of his first appearance at Creamfields where he was widely praised for having played the best set of the weekend. As Ben’s meteoric rise continues well into 2022, his summer boasts mouthwatering shows including performances at Creamfields, Boardmasters, Cultivate, Verknipt & further headline shows, not to mention a 12 date Ibiza season! If that wasn’t enough, Ben recently launched his own imprint bébé with the aim to delve deeper into musical genres that inspire him the most, pushing the boundaries further, while supporting emerging artists that share similar musical values and influences.
