S.O.D.WEE stands for Sound Of Da WEEk

We been around since early 2006. Providing the best nuggets of music week in, week out. We started showcasing a track or video per week due to bandwidth limits back in those days. Thankfully, technology and access to decent broadband connections around the world has changed the face of the music industry for the long run. And consequently has enabled to post more than a track/video a week.

Hi I’m Ben, the owner of this music blog, I was born in 1985 and raised in the 19th district of Paris, France. I’m bilingual in English and French thanks to my bi-national upbringing. I Know a little Spanish too from school years. Always on the hunt for the next big sound, I have amassed a substantial amount of music over the years. My library reflects my eclecticism. From oldies to this years’ dubstep breakthrough tracks. Working for different establishments in the capital city of France after graduating in Literature out of school I dived into the hospitality industry. Starting as bus-boy in a popular joint at the age of 18, moving the hierarchy ladder to become shift manager at 20 and finally moved out to Toulouse in the south of France to take on an assistant manager position for the same chain of pubs. Came the opportunity to move to Dubai to work as Cabin Crew / Flight Attendant for Emirates Airline.

Took on the challenge and was soon crisscrossing airways hopping from city to city worldwide. Enjoyed my time until I got back to Paris, France two years later and decided to change career path and swiftly moved out to London, UK for a pleasant internship at a world-renowned PR agency (Get In!) working on online profiles for big name DJs such as Avicii, Martin Solveig, John Digweed, Moguai, Cazzette and many more. Since then, I have been back in Paris, France and enjoying myself writing about music on the daily for a growing number of international readers.
