Ben is a resident of our Nation’s capitol and consistently fails to find anything interesting there to do. He is an avid music lover, recalling both his first cassette tape (Mariah Carey’s eponymous debut) and his first CD (Ace of Base’s The Sign). He has since amassed such a collection that his apartment is built out of old CD jewel cases.
His favorite music tends to come from other countries, as they do it “right.” From the very first song, he has loved artists like Our Lady Peace, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, No Doubt, Ben Folds Five, Alanis Morissette, Robyn, Garbage and many others. Some of his favorite remixers include Bimbo Jones, Fonzerelli, Offer Nissim, Jody Den Broeder, and the Young Punx. He is also single and willing to go on dates, as long as you pay.
Spun Counterguy is a DJ, writer, podcaster, producer (as Synapse Trap) and former record shop owner. Whether he’s digging through yard sales and attics of rural America for lost 78’s or perusing the clubs in Asia for new innovative tracks, he thoroughly enjoys his pursuit of audible happiness.

“While perfection (or near) of a remix is rare, personally I believe it is critical to be open to all variations of the music made in our genre so that we can hopefully, and joyfully, experience that treasured creation – that conception envisioned just from the acapella or from the musicality within the mind of the remixer.”
Cory resides in the Atlanta, GA area.
