Standing at the forefront of the ever-growing West-coast house & techno movement in the US is Ben Seagren – DJ, Producer, and visionary contributor within the Burning Man community.
Ben is best known for his dual roles as co-founder and resident DJ of DISTRIKT recognized as the staple party experience of the Burn for its reputable artist roster, beautifully positive crowd experience and definitive, cutting edge sound. Playing host and DJ to well over 30,000 guests every year during one magical week in the desert, it comes as no surprise that Ben and his DISTRIKT moniker continue to entertain thousands of fans and followers with weekly podcasts on Soundcloud and Pod-o-Matic.
Dominating San Francisco’s house & techno scene for over a decade with long-term residencies at both award-winning Ruby Skye (2003-2009) and legendary End-Up (2004-Present), Seagren’s impeccable taste and undeniable talent earned him the respect of even the most discriminating of techno aficionados- fans and peers alike. With a passion for connecting like minded souls on the dance floor and the continued support from a loyal fan base, Ben is propelling himself to new heights as one of the sonic architects behind tech-house’s most recent redesign.
While traveling constantly between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Ben still leads the charge in SF with a residency at the End-Up, regular events at Public Works, Mighty and Audio. He is also constantly organizing DISTRIKT events and performing over 100 gigs per year in clubs and festivals across the US and Mexico.
