Ben Nott- Blueprint, Sydney.
It began in the USA at the end of the 90’s, where Chicago house and Detroit Techno legends; Paul Johnson, Derrick Carter, Juan Atkins, Slater Hogan, Kevin Saunderson and the like showed Ben the light and lead him to the decks then into the promoter world, There was no turning back, the next 5 years saw Ben touring the states playing vinyl at raves and clubs while also throwing his own Xanadu shows which had up to 5k people in attendance!
The new Millennium saw Ben relocating to the UK and regularly DJing all over Europe with all the big boys such as Steve Lawler, Hernan Cattaneo, Danny Howells, Layo & bushwacka and Sasha plus hosting his own Club night; Ultra, which was based in Birmingham and at one point was a feature on Pete Tongs BBC radio one show as one of the best nights in the country!
After a decade of being heavily involved in all aspects of Europe’s club culture, A new adventure was calling – Sydney Australia was next, where he worked with Funktion One Audio at all the big festivals and built his own party BLUEPRINT, considered one of the city’s best underground parties today.
