Hard House Legend BK Strikes Back With ‘No Fool’

We’ve got an exciting release from quite the mastermind of the entire Dance movement.

Every now and then, between a sea of newcomers and current chart toppers, it’s so refreshing to see veteran acts still putting out top-notch music. We’ve had quality tunes from a handful of established acts lately, anywhere from Ferry Corsten rediscovering Old School Trance, to Orbital remixing ‘Café Del Mar’. Well, the industry welcomes yet another class name with a pristine release.

Ben Keen, known professionally as BK, is a Dance legend. From his early days in London studios to his Trade Club residency, he’s been at the very forefront of the Electronic sound for ages. His sound can be dissected into a handful of bridges between elements of Trance and Techno, in any decade you wish to pinpoint.

A true don of the scene, BK’s been a driving force behind the harder sound since it first thumped out of clubs. His timeless bangers, like the classics ‘Music Is Moving‘ and ‘Revolution‘ — a personal favourite —, still get dancefloors moving for a new generation of DJs. From Marlon Hoffstadt and Ben Hemsley to Ammara and Patrick Topping, his influence is everywhere, solidifying his reputation as a tastemaker of the highest order.

What’s more, Keen remains a dominant force to this day, having some doof releases on the horizon, plus fresh singles on Bebé and Armada, and collaborations with industry titans like James Hurr, Ammara, and Reinier Zonneveld. He’s one of those artists who have remained timeless, yet still true to their very essence.

‘No Fool’

The latest instalment in BK’s discography is nothing short of impressive. Crafted for the dancefloors — from the darkest clubs to the most packed arenas —, ‘No Fool‘ blends the best House vibes with the fast pace and high intensity of Techno, and sprinkles a bit of that banging Trance percussive dynamism that could heal a soul. Released on Hannah Laing’s imprint doof, this one feels like a full-circle moment for both Ben and Hannah.

I have taken so much inspiration from the hard house legend BK’s old catalogue! To have him releasing a modern Hard House tune on doof is a dream come true”, says Laing. And on the other side of the ring, Keen recalls, “A pleasure to be releasing on one of my favourite labels around at the minute. Hannah was the first person to test this record so doof is the perfect home for it“.
