Benjamin Stefanski, best known by his recording alias Raffertie, is a British composer and producer. A classically trained multi-instrumentalist, he studied Classical & Contemporary Music Composition at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
He received initial acclaim for his experimental electronic recordings, released via seminal imprint Planet Mu and championed by Mary Anne Hobbs. His debut artist album ‘Sleep Of Reason’ (Ninja Tune) was critically lauded by The Wire, Pitchfork and Drowned In Sound.
His electronic dexterity and classic song writing sensibility have seen him become known and sought out for the enigmatic, emotive sound he has developed throughout his work as a composer scoring for film and television.
