Ben was born and grew up in south Germany. His half German and half Slovenian roots are both clearly visible in his character; a perfectionist, extremely well organised but also enjoying Life to the fullest.
His Motto “You only live once” is not only a phrase for him, it is the Leitmotiv of his life.
He has been asked once to describe himself in 5 sentences, which for those who know him personally, absolutely nails the point:
True FRIENDS are the foundation I am standing on;
TRAVELLING is the air I am breathing;
Hard TRAINING is my source of power;
MUSIC is my key to think in new dimensions;
LOVE is my weakness, that makes me feel alive.
After finishing his economics studies in Berlin, he worked for several International companies in Marketing & Sales all over Germany, until he finally fell in Love with Zurich in Switzerland, where he's lived since 2013.
Music has always been a big part of his journey. When he started clubbing in his early twenties, he evolved his music taste more and more, so that in 2016 he decided to start creating music, instead of only listening to it, and became a professional DJ.
The ancient Greek God Dionysos is the God of wine, celebration and ecstasy; his name was also “Bakkus”. From that, “DJ Ben Bakson” was born.
His music style is rather commercial, with hard and energetic beats.
Vocals are very important to him, as he believes that they are the soul of each song and only they can create strong emotions.
Creating and transmitting this great energy on the dancefloor and leading the crowd to ecstasy is his mission.
