Ben UFO, as one of the co-founders of Hessle Audio, has been responsible for some of the most diverse and ground-breaking releases in recent years.

His musical taste was formed largely by the DMZ and Sub Dub events that took place in both London and Leeds when he became involved in the still-emerging dubstep scenes in 2005.

Avalon Emerson's music is renowned for its melodic synthesisers and powerful percussion, which draw inspiration from a wide range of pop and electronic music.

Emerson is also renowned for her "Cybernedits" (previously Cybernetic Edit Subscription Service) bootleg-style unofficial remixes, which she distributed as free zip downloads until 2016.
