Ben Watkins is a British electronic music artist and producer, best know as being the principal member of the band Juno Reactor. He started making music in 1982. In the early 1980s, Watkins started out as part of the London based new wave band The Hitmen , featuring Alan Wilder who would end up in Depeche Mode and Recoil . He also played in Empty Quarter with Martin "Youth" Glover from Killing Joke.
After these, primarily guitar-based bands, he formed The Flowerpot Men (no relation to Flowerpot Men, a British psychedelic-era band) together with Adam Peters , and recorded some songs which would follow the pattern of what would soon be called techno music. After the Flowerpot Men became Sunsonic and got dropped by their label, Watkins played with a few short-lived collaborations before forming Juno Reactor. Watkins also wrote and produced Traci Lords' solo album.
