Benny V

ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer

Dance Concept founder Benny V was trained at one of London’s top Stage Schools and was musically influenced from a young age by his father, a performer in live bands playing gigs regularly around London the UK and abroad.

After various television work including roles in The Bill and Grange Hill in his youth, he also started DJing professionally at the age of 16 at Lea Valley Ice Rink in East London while beginning to play on pirate radio around the same time.

He gained his first Drum & Bass residency at this time which then led on to appearances in the main rooms for most of the major Drum & Bass events in the UK and abroad. Showing off his versatility, not long after, he started his residency at the biggest weekly commercial London Club, The Venue in South East London’s New Cross where he still plays today, only a stones throw from the Run to the Beat course.
 
Originally, Dance Concept held events around some of Londons biggest venues. The natural progression was to release his music and have the artistic control gained only by managing a label directly.

Benny V, was the brainchild of the Stevie Hyper D projects and has worked on material for the Dance Concept label since its inception. His tracks have gained airplay many of the major stations including BBC Radio One and Kiss 100 as well as getting major support from the London Underground Pirates.

This year sees the release of the new Stevie Hyper D album ‘Generation Hyper’ with a new rostra of top Drum & Bass and Dub Step producers. All profits of this album will go to Stevie’s estate.
 
After running the 2012 London Marathon he actually ran in last years Run to the Beat himself. He had this to say: "Run to the Beat was an excellent event. It was brilliantly organised, I had a great time on the day, and it gives thousands of people the opportunity to achieve something great with many raising a lot of money for truly worthy causes. I look forward to helping you guys round the course this time around!"
