Nearly two decades ago Ben Goldman began his musical voyage as DJ Benz. Born and raised in Chicago, the birthplace of House, his dance music education came from an immersive decade of 90’s raving and event production. He credits local legends Derrick Carter, DJ Sneak, Paul Johnson, Mark Farina, and the French pioneers Daft Punk, as very important influences who helped shape his sound and style.
In 2000, Goldman put his passion and dedication into a hot Chicago imprint, Olive Records, which produced albums for Synthique, Max & Brian, Chezere, High Caliber, Sound Navigators and Granite and Phunk. Olive Juice, is a continuous mix of 17 Olive Records tracks. It was compiled, edited, and arranged by Benz and High Caliber made the top 10 selling electronic albums on iTunes.
