Nationality : Denmark
Genre : House

Benjamin Pedersen aka Kid Massive has been quite literally destined for big things, since perfecting his skills and developing a unique style in the years spent in his native country Denmark. Passionate about music, he found a deeper love for all things House in his younger years, holding residency and playing at the best venues across the country. Helping to shape the scene there over many years his talents were recognised by industry in 2005, where he was awarded "Best Upfront Single" and also nominated for "Best Producer" at the Danish Deejay Awards. He was further nominated for another three awards the following year.

With a signature style of driving but uplifting house, reflecting sounds across the entire genre and tight production skills to seal the deal, Kid Massive has earned support from key figures like Roger Sanchez, Fedde Le Grand, Steve Lawler, Axwell and Laidback Luke, to name just a few. Always striving to push himself and musical boundaries beyond the expected, and with a clear vision to support upcoming talent - the label Audiodamage was born. Strongly supported releases and an ever expanding reportoire have ensured mainroom and radio play success on an international scale. An appreciation for the deeper and techier sounds led him to form another label, Just Deep, allowing him to cater to a diverse playing style.

Now based in the UK, his productions have gone from strength to strength - the break through track "Get Busy" forcing many to stand up and notice, it's popularity proving so strong it has been scheduled for re release on several different labels this year. With material released on labels such as Stealth Records, Toolroom, Soda, Avanti, Milk & Sugar, Subversive, Kosmo Records, it’s no wonder the past year has also seen him in constant demand as a highly sought after remixer.

Playing all over the world, Kid Massive's touring schedule has been relentless – a testament to his popularity with the crowds and other DJs alike. He holds residencies with the famed UK clubbing brand Kinky Malinki and also for his own label's Audiodamage Tour, which has firmly established itself on the London scene and indeed the rest of the country. This year he is set to join creative forces with Michael Gray for an exciting collaboration and supporting tour under the Audiodamage name.
