Born October 1975 in Bolzano/Italy, moved to Munich, Germany. After finishing his medical studies in 2007 he is now becoming what he was always prophecied: a professional DJ, Drummer, producer & artist, teaming up with fresh house label DIAMONDHOUSE RECORDS (Munich, GER – Toulon, F).
Together with DHR-Labelhead BK DUKE (aka Chris Sauer), Ben Santo forms ELECTRIC BLAZE. Committed to the electronic avantgarde of deep, minimal and electronic house music with live drum performances by Ben Santo. Their first single ELECTRIC BLAZE ft. BEN SANTO “burning” (diamondhouse records, DH001) came out 04/2005.
Together with BK DUKE again, Ben Santo founded the live house project TREASURE ROOM bringing together great djing-skills and the experience of an amazing full range live funk band, relying on Santo’s formidable facilities as dj, drummer and entertaining singer.
The weekly House Music Radio Show “CASA NOSTRA” (welcome to our house) from July 2005 to September 2006 fridays on NOVARADIO German club network initiated the next big hit: Ben Santo & Yves Murasca introduced the hottest new tracks and live mixes by international artists as DJ Vitamin D, Milk & Sugar, DJ Rhythm, DJ Pierre… and had of course the two authors mixing and teaming up themselves! Now as a strong team, the two DJ’s and close friends are gaining more and more international respect with their stunning remixes for labels as Diamondhouse Records and Milk&Sugar Rec. (see discography below) and last but not least with their powerfull live-performances! Watch out for their forthcoming own productions!!
