KILLER B: BIOGRAPHY

Killer B is the psytrance project of Bennie Koorts from South Africa started in 2000. Killer B is well known for his skill and versatility behind the decks and the unique infectious sound he brings to the dance floor.  His mission is to bring you a truly intelligent underground sound with good music and good vibes.

His style is focused on tight beats, groovy rhythms, and twisted psychedelic sounds with profound bass for maximum dance floor vibrations. With the experience of over 2 decades in producing and DJ’ing, his quality of mixing and enthusiasm creates an energetic impression on the dance floor that is unforgettable, uncompromising.

Killer B has played an integral part in the South African underground music scene since 2000, not only in showcasing the latest music during his DJ sets and live sets but also by being a pioneering event organiser to help promote and expose upcoming artists and create a platform for them to share their music production. He started a record label called Amoeba Records (2004) to help promote and grow the South African psy culture from Johannesburg to what it is today. Ben started mixing on turntables back in the day, playing Techno and Goa and presently plays a variety of styles like Deep Prog, Techno but mostly slamming underground Psychedelic Trance, thus making him a busy B managing his schedule during the summer seasons with playing at outdoor festivals and clubs, as well as being productive in the studio during the winter months. Killer B is also a creative designer with his artwork featured internationally on multiple albums, posters and flyers.

Killer B’s first success was the international vinyl release in 2000, “Minimal Thoughts”, which was signed to the Belgium label Start Stop Records, he went on to release tracks and remixes with labels like Looney Moon Records, Digital Shamans Records, Mushroom Mafia Records, Mo:Dem Records, Amoeba Records, Mansion Records, Karana Records, Our Minds, PsynOpticz and Insectik Records.

Biggest moments: Mo:Dem festival (releasing a track and getting booked for a 2 hour set) / Tunda Festival Lithuania playing Live / Vortex every year / Origin Festival / Echo Festivals and so many more…

Killer B has been part of the Looney Moon crew since their first release 10 years ago with his track “Off My Nut” and followed by his E.P. titled “Psychological Experiment”

His next E.P. is in the making with Looney Moon Records and will be exciting news when it releases as it’s a long time in the making. 😉 So with one foot in the studio and one foot on stage and one eye on the mixer and the other eye on the dance floor, you are sure to enjoy the interesting journey.
