DJ Ben Pearce reveals success is a ‘big mountain’ in the music business

DJ Ben Pearce revealed success is like ”climbing a big mountain” ahead of his slot at Fatboy Slim’s Smile HIgh Club in London on January 2nd.

The Mancunian producer found fame when his catchy track ‘What I Might Do’ reached number two in the UK dance chart and peaked in the top 10 singles chart in 2013, and despite getting regular slots at Glastonbury and Secret Garden Party, he admits the rise to the summit has been ”hard work”.

The Manc born producer shared: ”I got chucked into it from doing a normal job in a call centre. I kind of got thrown in, like mad touring schedules, so it was a lot, it was hard to get used to.

He continued: “It’s kind of like climbing a big mountain and when you get to the top there’s a reward but it’s hard going… Dealing with the isolation as well, maybe, because you’re traveling on your own a lot.”

Nevertheless Ben says it is the ”the best job” and he’s looking forward to playing at Fatboy Slim’s Smile High Club in London’s Tobacco Dock on January 2, along with 2ManyDJs, Secondcity, Breach and Erol Alkan.

Asked who he likes to bump into at gigs, he said: ”So many, like Seth Troxler, and those people you look up to when you’re starting out and that you finally meet. They’re really nice.

It makes it all the more worth while. Everyone is mates, everyone gets together (at gigs) because you usually don’t see each other for some time and then you’ll all get together at a party or a festival and it’s like being back with your old friends again.”
