Make no mistake, Ben Cofresi (out of Chicago, IL) has got some hot beats. But don’t you dare call him a DJ! It would almost be an insult to the amount of work, skill and passion he puts into his live performance. If you need any proof of that then look no further than this official video of a live studio performance. In said video Cofresi plays two original tracks, “Avant Suede” and “Velvet”. Not only does the young producer go from one track to the next with the slightest of ease he also shows off his expert drumming skills. With his mixer, laptop, controller, drum pad, drum kit and, of course, drumsticks by his side, Cofresi takes the term “live electronic” to a unique level that makes you really appreciate what guys like him are doing. Watch the video in its entirety below and be sure to come check him out on October 11th opening for D.V.S* & Sunsquabi at the Abbey Pub in Chicago. You can purchase tickets for the event here.
