LA’s William Benjamin Bensussen, aka The Gaslamp Killer, has emerged as a producer who developed his charismatic notoriety by pushing his corner of bass music into a something resembling a close cousin of acid rock.
The San Diego native is a bonafide one-off; an artist and human being that can never be repeated. With an unparalleled energy, the DJ, producer, promoter and curator brings a different level of performance and showmanship to electronic music. As a producer, The Gaslamp Killer has worked with artists such as Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi and Computer Jay. His own experimental solo material pushes the borders of genre as much as his performances. His DJ sets contain both rare world music and obscure gems as well as popular music varying from the Beatles, to Jimi Hendrix to Dr. Dre.
