Fast forward 5 years and a switch over in technology to cdj's Benja now had the knowledge and skill of dj'ing and selecting riddim's from a jamaican dj prospective gaining a weekly residency in the notorious club based in mosside The Big Western. Benja was a regular face on the scene investing more of his time and effort into creating a name for himself and becoming the best dj he could he then started to experiment with remixing song's which led him down the path of full on producing his own original music. Since 2013 Benja has worked non stop trying to find himself as a producer and push his craft as far as his imagination can take him not only limiting himself to one genre of music but branching out into everything Benja is as versatile as it come's when making music but you will always find some of the original elements of caribbean music hidden in the majority of his tracks.
