Ben Fhurst is co-owner and manager of Lucky Life Music, being responsible for the musical direction of the label, finding new talent and managing the day to day running of the business. Ben hails from Perth, Western Australia and started DJ-ing in 1999.
Ben lived in London for ten years presenting a weekly show on World Dance FM and racked up many an hour on the London DJ circuit. He became a resident for Lucky Life in 2008 and has played at almost every London Lucky Life Party since, including sets at Pacha London, Ministry of Sound and the SW4 Official Afterparty at Coronet Theatre.
During 2013, Ben had an epiphany on a boat party in Ibiza. This resulted in him quitting his job and waving goodbye to the corporate world. He moved to Ibiza at the start of 2014 and started the Lucky Life Music label.
Both Ben and the label had an unbelievable first summer season in Ibiza. The label was launched on the 5 Star Catamaran and held events at Space, Pikes Hotel and secret Villa locations. In April of 2015, Lucky Life Music took over the fabled Pacha Ibiza and smashed it. Ben travels each year to Amsterdam to play on a boat party on King’s Day and the Lucky Life Music label runs an annual party at Gigalum in London. Ben’s debut release “35” featured on the first of the Lucky Nights series from Lucky Life Music and the soon to be released, Lucky Nights 006.
Ben has played at Savannah, Sands, Sunrise Bar, Club 107, Pacha, Space, Pikes, Eden, Zoo Project, Cafe Del Mar, Boutique Hostal Salinas and numerous boat parties including Float Your Boat, Cirque De La Nuit, Zoo and Capadi Rebels since arriving in Ibiza and produces and presents the weekly Lucky Life Music show for Pioneer DJ Radio broadcast each week on Thursdays from 6pm C.E.T.
Ben’s DJ sets are a lot like his personality, full of energy, sometimes sinister and deep but loud and relentless. You can find Ben bouncing, sweating and generally going nuts behind the decks delivering unpredictable sets. Not too hung up genres, Ben is continually looking for new sounds and new ways to deliver them to the dance floor, with groove and flow being at the centre of everything.
