Staying true to his musical ethos, electronic pop juggernaut Bentley Jones (Lee Brotherton, LB (Remix Factory), Phunkstar) continues to accrue an impressive amount of accolades throughout the latest chapter of his career. Returning to the UK in 2020 after being deemed “too controversial” for his Japanese company, Ben gained support from BBC Introducing and premiered the album’s first single with a live performance at the historic Global Pride festival (broadcast by Google) which was watched by 57.2 million people worldwide.

Ben’s latest original works include “The Weight of the World” (+500,000 streams), “I Never Left” (+100,000 streams), “Love Me Til It Hurts” (+100,000 streams) and “Stay Close to Me” – the official theme of the Gayming Awards and Ben’s performance opened the 2023 awards in New York to their +320,000 live broadcast audience.

Ben’s latest music embraces the topics of love, sexuality, gender and the discrimination he’s faced from the music industry – all set to melodies that soar above refined, electronic-infused productions that are synonymous to Bentley’s reputation. Elements of trip-hop, R&B, 80s synths and house complete the breadth of a truly satisfying pop landscape.

Bentley has amassed over 50 million streams and downloads, and gathered remix credits for the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, Harry Styles, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga (who also follows him on Twitter). If that wasn’t enough, he’s composed for some of the world’s best-known video-game franchises like “The X-Files”, “Tekken”, “Sonic the Hedgehog”, “Gradius”, “Titan Wars” and “Contra”.

Bentley’s debut in Japan was the first time a British artist released a Japanese album on a major label (EMI-Universal) and unexpectedly went top 5 in 2009. Since then he has forged a career far from home working with the country’s biggest stars including JUJU, Ayumi Hamasaki, DJ KOO (TRF), May J., SHUN and more. His first English EP “So Much More…” included the main theme of the number 1 selling video-game “SEGA All-stars Racing”. The EP was streamed a staggering 1.1 million times in just 5 days upon release.

During his 10th anniversary celebrations in 2019 Bentley resided in Tokyo performing various concerts including headlining the Tokyo Bon Summer Festival, featuring in From Aqua Mineral Water’s commercials and being invited to sing on the prestigious TV show “Nodojiman THE WORLD” which was viewed by 12.1 million people. His TV appearance coincided with the release of a new Japanese single which also became the first ever J-pop song broadcast by BBC Introducing in the UK.

As a proud LGBTQ+ independent artist, Bentley’s latest album The Examined Life is Not Worth Living is a bold celebration of resilience, individuality and acceptance. After seeing his tour performances, both 9monsters (the #1 LGBT dating app in Asia) and Miami Beach Pride invited Ben to be an ambassador for their brands as well as write and record the official theme songs for their international promotions. In 2022 Ben went on to form new partnerships with Schecter Guitars and Gayming Magazine as well as headlining the Queens Sounds Festival.
