Ain't No Party like a Party Ben Party!

If you are from the left coast or just a fan of mash-ups ... you probably know the name Party Ben aka Ben Gill. Ben is one of the most notable names in the mash-up scene. He was a DJ at Live 105 in San Francisco and began airing his mixes on KJEE-FM in Santa Barbara and 91X in San Diego. Ben was also a member of the "Untitled Friday Night Show" along with Madden and Miles the Intern on Live 105. In 2008 Party Ben started collaborating with Slacker Radio, an internet radio service, to mix and DJ their "New Sounds" station.

In late 2004, Party Ben created the "Boulevard of Broken Songs" mashup, featuring elements of Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", Oasis' "Wonderwall", Travis' "Writing to Reach You", and Eminem's "Sing for the Moment", which itself sampled Aerosmith's "Dream On".

He was a resident at Bootie, one of the first club nights anywhere dedicated to mash-ups.
