Before Son Fjord graduated elementary school, he had already memorized the lyrics to Rapper's Delight. It was at that young age that he began his evolution from listener to selector to dancefloor czar, a journey that has encompassed worldly styles ranging from Canadian Riviera sunset house to the funkiest of Brazilian 45s. You can see him playing around Austin, TX with his disco bredren Flying Turns, or solo for clients like Urban Outfitters and the South Congress Hotel. A certified Eagle Scout, he arrives to gigs prepared for anything, packing at least 100 vinyl records and 32 ounces of green tea. The tea is for sharing, but if you'd like to take home a record you'll have to visit his Discogs store (benihanasp12), which he proudly operates with a 100% satisfaction rating.
