BKR aka DJ BENJAMIN(Sound Control, Open Bar Music, Pressure Radio) After twenty years of DJ-work on the local and international club scenes, BKR is one of the pioneers promoting subculture in Slovenia. He is one of the oldest supporters of the radio show House FM and Red Bull Music Academy. His style is not typical. He likes to perform for different audiences at big events and also in the small clubs. He always accommodates his sound for the audience. His first gig with electronic music was on 13. May 1995 (50 years After ww2 A Rave Day @ PEKARNA Maribor) at the start with subculture in his country. Besides gigs on the events of Ambasada Gavioli, Space Events, Design of Love, Red Bull Jump and Freeze, on RTV Slovenia ... one can count more, but the list is too long. He is one of the few DJs from Slovenia to appear on major events together with names like David Morales, Carl Cox, Valentino Kanzyani, Timmy Vegas, DJ Umek, Miguel Migs, Tyree Cooper, Mousse T, Boris Dlugosch, Richard F, Terry Francis, Miss Jools, Alan Rusell, ... and one of the few home DJs that performed in South America (Brasil), Ukraine, Croatia, Bosnia, Germany, Austria, Swiss, Italy and Spain. On 13. January 2001 he created a big sensation in the club Teater in Celje (Slovenia) by performing a 24 hour long set (24 HOURS WITH HOUSE MUSIC) that many people didn't believe was possible and some still don't believe it now. He is looking to do this again or maybe even improve on it. His collaboration with some well known German distributors and labels such as EAMS, Music Mail, Peppermint Jam, Underground Solution, … encouraged him to start his own import / export company in the early 90’s with vinyl and Cd's with Germany and Slovenia, which kept him in close contact with many clubs, DJs and radio stations. In July 2007 BKR started his own live slots “House Styles” on UKs best Internet radio station www.pressureradio.com. The response from DJs, promoters and radio stations around the world was not long in coming. He started promoting many of the talented producers from his native Slovenia which included his old friend Ozzy Lee Tiger and many other producers from around the world such as Timmy Vegas, Logical Groove, Mateo and Mattos, Andy Ward, Deep Josh, Dario Dattis, Vision X, Tom & Grade, Steven Stone, Brazilian Soul Crew……and many labels like Open Bar Music, MN2S, Tormenta, Black Vinyl included him on their promo list. His hype charts appeared on Timmy Vegas’s Universe Media label page together with the some of the biggest producers in the music scene today such as Tony Humphries, Funkagenda and many others. BKR started a great working relationship with Oscar P (Open Bar Music) Media Services NYC one of the most influential digital distributors from USA. With BKR's ability for finding the right producers, singers-songwriters, re-mixers, labels and distribution companies, “Sound Control” was born ... Oh Yeah!
