Modcast #17: Ben Aqua

Modcast #17: Ben Aqua

We've stayed relatively true to our promise to provide regular Modcast updates, and here's the latest. We got Ben Aqua to hit the sliders this time around and he came back to us with a stellar outerspace disco mix that you really should get your head around. All the way from Austin, Texas in the US of A, Ben is a photographer, artist and DJ who's work has been published in NYLON Magazine, Arkitip, XLR8R and Fecal Face. He's also a founding member of the photo team OK! FRESH and art collective Totally Wreck. Under the name of MVSCLZ, Ben makes what he describes as "hyper electronic Hi-NRG disco project from the nether worlds of GYMNASIA".

Check out his photography portfolio, blog and MySpace for more info.
