Ben Williams aka BMotion is a Drum & Bass producer, hailing from Pontypool a small town in Wales. Having first been introduced to music from an early age, Ben began his musical life playing Drums. From here he was introduced to Jazz via his father, a pianist, and began playing live shows in and around South Wales. At around age 11, Ben also started to learn to play the Guitar, again studying Jazz, soul funk and anything else he could discover.

With such an early start to music, it was only natural for Ben to continue his studies by attending a music course at college, where he was introduced to music technology and software called Logic Pro. This was the start of a delve into dance music, and ultimately Drum & Bass.

Drawn in by the driving beats and rumbling bass lines, Drum & Bass was a no brainier for Ben and BMotion was born. A few years were spent homing skills and sounds, before his debut release with Rush Records with ‘Cybergenic’ and ‘Boss Man’. This release gained support from the likes of Bailey, Random Movement, Hoodlum and more. A great start for BMotion which led to a label called Soulvent records, where ‘Circles’, ‘Need Your Love’,'All My Love’ and ‘Reflections’ were released. ‘Circles’ was lucky enough to be posted by UKF and gained support from the likes of High Contrast,Logistics and Camo & Krooked.

As a result of this exposure Viper records head honcho Futurebound started to take notice and contacted Ben about a release. ‘Summer Glow’ was released on the ‘Summer Slammers 2014′ album and was then followed by Bmotion’s debut solo release on Viper with ‘Feelings’ and ‘Something Something’. The latter gained support from the likes of TC, Cyantific, Sub Focus, Matrix & Futurebound, Crissy Criss, Danny Byrd, Metrik,Netsky and many more. Following on in early 2015 BMotion dropped his monster release ‘Bear Hug’ / Vice City’ which gained his first beatport top 10 with ‘Bear Hug’ being hailed as one of the biggest club anthems of the Summer. Ending the year strong with his 3rd release on Viper ‘Arabia’ / ‘Ignition’, BMotion has solidified himself as a producers fave and achieved his first #1 on beatport releases.

Ben Williams Aka Bmotion est un producteur originaire de Pontypool, une petite ville du pays de Galles. Ben commence la musique très tôt en étant tout d’abord batteur. Il est ensuite introduit au jazz grâce à son père, qui était lui même pianiste et commence à se produire avec lui dans le sud du pays de Galles. A l’âge de 11 ans il commence à apprendre la guitare, via la funk, la soul et bien d’autres genres musicaux.

Au lycée il est introduit à la musique electronique, ce qui lui permet d’apprendre à se servir de Logic Pro. Suite à cela, il se consacre exclusivement à la musique electronique, notamment la drum&bass avec laquelle il engage une longue histoire d’amour.

Après plusieurs années à travailler de manière acharnée dans sa chambre, développant son sound design et ses batteries, Bmotion sort son premier EP sur Rush Records. Cette première release, très prometteuse connait beaucoup de succès auprès de grands de la scène telle que Bailey, Random Movement, Hoodlum et plus encore. Il sort ensuite un nouvel EP sur Soulvent Records, dont l’un des morceaux est uploadé sur UKF, ce qui lui a valu d’être playlisté par Camo & Krooked, High Contrast et Logistics !

Suite à cela, c’est sans surprise que Viper Recordings commence à s’intéresser à lui. Il release son premier morceau sur le label de futurebound peu de temps après. Il sort ensuite son premier EP Solo « Something Something B/W Feelings » et connait un grand succès auprès de Sub Focus, Crissy Criss, Danny Byrd, Matrik, Netsky… S’en suivent 2 nouveaux EP’s sur Viper qui connaissent eux aussi un succès fou, notamment une première place sur le top beatport !
