The DJ alias of Seattle's Benny Sheffield, Blueyedsoul has been one of the busiest and most trusted selectors in the local nightlife scene over the past decade. With his deep crates, expansive knowledge, and seasoned mixing skills, he's able to nimbly blend classic and contemporary sounds to get any dancefloor moving.
A tireless musical force, he's opened up stages for world-class DJs and rocked all the major local festivals. You can often find Benny spinning around town at his multiple residencies: Grim's every Friday and Saturday, Motown on Mondays at Bar Sue, Sugar Hill every 1st Thursday, and co-running the seasonal Feel Good Inc. parties at Neumo's.
His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a top-notch exploration through warm, soulful, deep house and tech-house rhythms, and serves as a prime appetizer of what you might expect from his upcoming set at the Shameless 5th Annual Memorial Day Desert Hearts Showcase happening at Monkey Loft on Monday May 27th.
