Along with Tristan and Hallucinogen he forms the forefront of the international trance scene, playing gigs as Prometheus, and Younger Brother with Simon Posford all over the world, from Greece to Japan, Finland, Denmark, Mexico, and the USA. Benji has been making trance music under various guises since the early 90’s and has featured as Prometheus/Younger Brother on Twisted, Prometheus on Dragonfly and Cyberbaba’s with Raja Ram on TIP Records always making the most cutting edge sounds and taking trance into new directions. As a producer he has been branching out into the world of dance music in general, as Contraband for Backroom Beats and JUNK, a house outfit with Joe William’s from The Light/PFN who have been getting play from Sasha, Nick Warren, Steve Lawler, and John Digweed and all the big house DJ’s, remix work for EMI & Jive Records and producing a new album for The Egg. He has also won several awards including a recent one from Sony for his soundtrack to a Nike advert.
It is his trance output however that he is most famous for even from his earliest single, ‘Clarity from Deep Fog’ with Process, right up to his latest, ‘Number Cruncher/ Snakes & Ladders’ in which Prometheus has shown his own imitable psy-style, dancefloor testimony to his skills in the studio and ability to move an audience. His sets at Samothraki dance festival in Greece and elsewhere have been the highlights of the event as in Finland and Japan recently where he played to several thousands in Osaka and Tokyo. He has completed a new solo album of trancefloor music, with tracks like ‘Samothraki’, ‘Mekong Delta’, ‘O.K. Computer’, ‘Universe’, and ‘U.R. Beautiful’.
