Ben Malone is one of Dance Music’s most exciting rising talents.

London based but with a global footprint, the tastemaker, broadcaster, presenter, DJ, producer and curator works closely with some of the biggest global Dance brands, and is renowned for pioneering forward-thinking and cutting edge artists, tracks and sounds on the biggest platforms. Every week, Ben broadcasts the best in global electronic music across the UK on KISS FM UK, alongside Mark Knight, Sam Divine, Gorgon City & DJ S.K.T, and hosts the Sirius XM (USA) and globally syndicated Armada Next.

He also regularly hosts industry-leading figures such as Yousef, Jansons, OC & Verde and Jess Bays on Podcasts in partnership with the likes of Egg London, and on his own ‘Under The Rhythm’ brand. 

Behind the scenes, Ben is the UK Label Manager for Armada Music; the largest independent dance music label in the world, with a roster of world-class talent spanning House, Techno, Melodic, Progressive, Trance and commercial dance music. Ben has also recently begun his music production career, with releases signed to Armada Electronic Elements and ZeroThree Records, having studied at the world-renown Point Blank Music School.

“The Future Five is one of my favourite parts of each year on my KISS FM UK show! Throughout the year the show is dedicated to uncovering new artists, sounds and talent in underground electronic dance music both within the UK and globally, but January always feels like a special moment to take stock and look at the full year ahead.” 

“Sharing top tier breakthrough talent across the UK on KISS is an honour that doesn’t get old; and it’s been great to see previous Future Five artists like Maur, Tibasko and Miane go on to achieve incredible successes.”

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
