Ben Pooley is part of the NONOM (No Nonsense Music Crew) hailing from Plymouth coming from a background in hip-hop, turntablism, house, techno, electro, IDM, dub tech and bass music.

DJing since 1993, Pooley started his career spinning hip-hop and his growing love of breaks and house music saw him move deeper into the electronic music scene. For many years he played regularly at the successful Plymouth electro night UFO. Along the way his skill and dexterous skills behind the decks saw his play support to some fine acts, acts like Afrika Bambaataa, Schooly D, Scape One, Tipper, Transparent Sound and LA Synthesis.

His skills on decks are matched with his growing presence in the studio. 2012 was a big year. It saw the release of both his and our début release – Distant. A five track EP of exquisite deep electro and bass texture. His housier sound saw release on Appleblim’s imprint Applepips with – Can’t Stop / Git Da Funk. And, he contributed a track to UK electro mainstay – Pyramid Transmissions’ Interstellar Communication Vol 1.

In 2015 he contributed two tracks to our first compilation Winter Solstice.
