BenTaaffe

Ben is fanatic record collector, recreational dancer, DJ and promoter based in Perth. He is a founding director of the {Move} Foundation for Musical Health and Well-Being. He hosts the Underground Solution and Giant Steps radio shows on RTRFM, and DJs around Perth’s top music venues and dance clubs.

How did you become involved?

Since 1998, I had been devoted listener to the Underground Solution show and I soon became frequent visitor to the legendary Complex Records Store, then owned and staffed by the legendary Underground Solution founder and presenter Ben Stinga. Listening to this show introduced me to the world of experimental, electronic and modern soul music and is a big part of why I have become a record collector and DJ. Around 2004, and after more than 10 years with RTR, Ben decided to retire and he asked me to start presenting the show. Of course, i said yes!

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

 Too difficult.

What is the best thing about being involved with the station?

Sharing the music that I love and listening to it in the knowledge that many, or even just some, other people might be enjoying it just as much as I do!

What do you do in real life?

Listen. Love. Learn
