ABOUT BEN THE BEYONDER

Ben the Beyonder began studying music at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music and became, at age five, the school’s youngest student. By the time he was a teenager, he was a well-versed classical pianist but, growing up in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, naturally gravitated towards Hip-Hop, to him the most vibrant form of music at the time. In the nineties, he began rapping and producing while building an extensive record collection, leading him to explore the art of DJing, which he has now done professionally for well over a decade.
