Ben Hogan (aka BENJAMYN) is a Dublin based singer-songwriter & electronic music producer blending genres such as House, Funk, Jazz, Indie and Surf-Rock, to make a unique sound he calls 'Surf-House'. He has drawn comparisons to artists such as Chet Faker, Milky Chance, Foals, and Tom Misch after his live sets at The Lighthouse, Body & Soul, and Bello Bar.
His releases to date have amassed significant coverage from the likes of Golden Plec, Hot Press, Nialler9, IndieBuddie and JOE.ie, as well as receiving widespread airplay from 98FM, Spin 1038, RTÉ 2FM and BBC Northern Ireland.
The 25 year old multi-instrumentalist has been performing since he was a child, experimenting with musical styles ranging from indie rock and acoustic folk, eventually synthesising into the upbeat electronic style that he is currently producing.
In 2018 Ben co-founded the indie/electronic label BlueTide Music, along with some peers, with the aim of releasing fresh sounding music and paving their own route to success in the Irish scene.
Ben has also began producing for other artists, starting with his label co-founder and long-time collaborator Conor Hamilton-Long on his debut single 'See Me Now'.
