i mean he may not just be to your taste, i really like all of the boiler room mixes, podcasts, rinse mix CDs, etc. but i know some ilxors whose taste i respect don't find him nearly as impressive as i do (tim finney comes to mind) ... as far as people standing around gawping isn't that like the front row of every "big dj" set ever?

ben (like zip actually) is pretty adaptable to different scenario's imo and can take in whatever direction

I like the UFO, he's a great digger who also picks up on some big tunes early on and he usuually keeps the transitions interesting - that clip up there seems like a typical after-party-style eclectic set though. There was a great UFO/Jackmaster B2B on Rinse a few months ago, but again it's a radio show rather than a club set.
Here's the link, but I think it's drop offline: http://podcast.dgen.net/rinsefm/podcast/BenUFO160212.mp3

Actually I really like Ben UFO, vahid, I just thought the Rinse mix was just okay.
My favourite Ben UFO sets I've heard were from 2008/2009, which may reflect the fact that this was when his style seemed most new and exciting.
When I get home I'll see which ones I like most and maybe even upload them.
I doubt the problem is that he's gotten worse since then - maybe he's even gotten better - but his style has since become one vein of post-dubstep orthodoxy, which makes it a lot harder for it to strike me as exciting (in the same way that nu-deep post-minimal DJ sets became radically less exciting circa 2008 even though there wasn't necessarily any drop in quality from the best DJs).

Ah yeah that's right, Ben UFO Hessle Audio Fabric Takeover mix (from 2009) is the one:
I'd concede his style has gotten more wide-ranging since then (here's it kind of consistently a technoid broken beat) but I just love basically every tune on this (and props for including Aphrodisiax's "Unfinished Business"!).

have you heard the pearson sound mix from the same night? so great!

oh wait i see it's fabric, not boiler room, forget it
I've decided that Hessle Audio Fabric Takeovers are one of the few reasons life is worth living.

Does Theo's heavy EQ-ing really work in live settings? Because from some video clips and recorded sets I sometimes feel it is a bit excessive and disrupts my enjoyment of the tracks.

in the live setting that i saw him in it certainly did not work at all, it seemed like a joke.

I saw Jubilee last week and she was amazing. Trina, snap mini-set(!), vogue, MORE TRINA, dancehall, "Club Rez". Talked to her for a min afterward and she said she was playing for me. <3

not really sure about judging a DJ from a short recorded mix (especially if you like djs that play long records and let things breathe rather than a more jumpcut style) but this binh mix is pretty much what i want to hear when out

Heard Intergalactic Gary play a excellent 4 hour set last night, which I think was recorded too. I will try and remember to post it on here if it comes online.
In the meantime, my favourite new (to me) DJ is Semantica label head Svreca: https://soundcloud.com/arma17/svreca-aux
