Benjamin Kocher, born and raised in the highlands of Zurich, was introduced to electronic music in his early teens through an older cousin. Fascinated by the colorful and open world of the techno-scene he began to visit parties and soon after he bought his first DJ-equipment.
At the age of twenty Benja moved to Zurich, which is the center of the electronic music scene in Switzerland. Once there, he became quickly established and made a name for himself which is standing for innovative House Music. Since 2009 he is resident at the infamous Hive Club and plays regularly in Zurich and all over Switzerland. More and more he also plays in other European Cities (for example at Watergate Berlin, Chaca Chaca Munich and others).
Since some years Benja is also active as a music producer. In 2009 he released his first EP on Hive Audio. Since then, Hive Audio is Benja’s home base. Benja is spending many hours in the studio, sharing it with Reto Ardour to work on common as well as on own Tracks. In collaboration with Reto he has made a remix for M.in which was released on the German label Baalsaal and a track (Sweet Peace) for the 5 years Hive compilation on Hive Audio. In the near future are coming up remixes and tracks on different European Labels… Watch out, this story has just began!
