Easily my favourite DJ, anywhere. One of the few DJs on the planet to excel at both the conceptual/artistic side of DJing and the sheer technical chops. They'll cater a mix to an event that's challenging, funny, intelligent and relevant - and deliver it with the precision and technique that just utterly destroys the dancefloor. It's honestly pure delight to just watch them do their thing.

I literally didn’t understand where the artistry was in DJing until I heard Boom Boom Bean Selecta do a tiny gig for 6 people a few years ago and it was the best set I’ve ever seen... they still deliver every time though! Brissie is lucky to have them 💚

Boom Boom Bean Selecta is a great DJ. Having danced to several of their gigs, I can say that their style is immersive. We are talking of that kind of music that, if you are sitting and having a chat, invites you to leave the conversation to go for a boogie. And once you are dancing, Boom Boom Bean Selecta's music brings you into yourself, into your body, creating an ecstatic experience. I also find their music versatile. I can tell that Boom Boom Bean Selecta thinks about their audience when preparing their set. They connect with their audience and create a customised music experience each time that they play. I could not recommend Boom Boom Bean Selecta enough. Thanks for the passion you put in making your music!

I happened to see Boom Boom Bean Selecta at a New Years Party and I haven't experienced such a journey with a DJane before. She was able to take us very deep down and up into spheres that are beyond beauty. So much tenderness, depth and strength. I want to go back to that moment so badly. THANK YOU.

The sonic mastery of Boom Boom Bean Selecta is not something to be missed. Boom Boom Bean Selecta knows how to mould the vibe of a dance floor into something magical 

Philo Sophie  recommends Boom Boom Bean Selecta UK.

Anyone who is not fully vaccinated against beans is at risk of becoming infected when entering the dancefloor led by Boom Boom Bean Selecta. ... Boogie fever is a very contagious condition that causes the body to lose inhibition, developing into a groove that cannot be tamed. Boom Boom Bean Selecta can cause lucid, sometimes uncontrollable, dance moves that leave the patron feeling euphoric and exhilarated. 

Proceed with caution.
