The Journey Men………………..
The Journey Men are a production outfit from the UK, born through a mutual love of house, soul and dance music from various genres.
Behind The Journey Men name is DJ’s Ben Coppin & Mr Miggs Two friends who are as comfortable DJing together, as they are having a dance off somewhere in the depths of a late night dance floor. Having built a solid understanding of each other’s DJ skills, musical inspirations and future aspirations – they have now taken their friendship one step further – into the studio. Their mission is to create music in their own way with a simple aim to make people dance. Inspirations will be drawn from their love of music from Soul to Jungle. You will be able to hear a piece of each genre creeping through in the Journey of sound from which this production name has been born.
