Hello, my name is Dale Cooper
My real name is Ben. I am a DJ from Dijon, France. I started spinning records in 1995, playing beats and scratching for a long defunct Hip-Hop band. I now play mainly Drum & Bass but also Bass Music, House, Hip-Hop… and I have the longest running Drum & Bass radio show in France, since 1998 on Radio Dijon Campus 92.2FM and http://dijon.radio-campus.org
From 2001 to 2011 I’ve run La Vibe, the French Drum & Bass online community which has been a cornerstone of the movement and helped it to spread quickly circa 2003-2006. It is now closed down but the archives are still available at www.lavibe.org
As a DJ over the years I’ve had the chance to play some big gigs, alongside some of the biggest names in the Drum & Bass and Dubstep scenes such as Andy C, DJ Hype, Bailey, Ed Rush, DJ Trace, DJ Die, Camo & Krooked, Black Sun Empire, Chase & Status, Alix Perez, Noisia, DLR, Resident Evil, Audio, Phace, Headhunter, N-Type, Loefah, Von D, Klute, Mortem, Greg Packer, Simon Bassline Smith, Utah Jazz, Jaydan, Paul SG and many more…
I’m a vinyl record junkie, I currently have around 2800 records in my collection, in all genres of music.
In 2011 I’ve launched a website dedicated to Mo’ Wax. It is called Mo’ Wax Please and it is here : www.mowaxplease.com
In April 2016 I decided that I’ve had enough of the social networks, so I deleted all my accounts, and you won’t find me anywhere.
Oh and by the way, in real life I work as a web developer in little cool agency, after spending about 5 years working as a freelancer.
