We have been conducting tests to improve and scale our new live streaming protocol, BitTorrent Live. Each week we have been able to gather feedback and push the boundaries in order to refine and eventually change the way our users experience live streaming.
If you haven’t had chance to join, we highly recommend it (and would really appreciate it!).
For more information on BitTorrent Live and to stay up to date on all live streaming events check out the Facebook page here.
About the Artists
Dr. Knobz, aka Ben Stein, was born and raised in San Francisco. He started playing musical instruments from the age of 10, and played drums and orchestral percussion through high school. At the age of 16 he started spinning on CDJs, and began to play with electronic music production. From there, he explored a huge range of sound from Hip Hop, Drum ‘n’ Bass to IDM and House. In 2007, Ben began to form Dr. Knobz, as hip hop influenced heavy bass music had infiltrated the heart of his musical diaspora. Ben is a music collector and as a DJ strives to drop the newest, most epic, and underplayed dance-floor face melters, while pushing his production further to bring only the absolute highest quality earthshaking bass. In early 2010, his debut release Purple Gangsta EP, dropped on MalLabel Music. Since then he has also released “Ceeker Bodyrocker Carly-D & Dr. Knobz Remix” on MalLabel, and charting collaboration track “Bless – Carly-D, Dr.Knobz & Doug Surreal” on Badman Digital, as well as the hip hop drumstep track “Whiplash” on GruntWorthy Music. He is also a co-founder of GruntWorthy, a Future Bass Music Label & events production company, which he founded with partner and co-producer Carly-D. Expect more heat from this mad man of musical medicine, twiddler of knobz, shifter of sounds, coming to a sound system near you…
