Benny Benassi

Benny Benassi, real name Marco Benassi (born 13th July 1967) is an Italian DJ and producer, offering energetic electro-house music that has achieved wide commercial success.

His breakout hit “Satisfaction,” released in the summer of 2003, brought Benassi to international acclaim, reaching number two in the UK singles chart, with the track’s success bolstered by the Ministry of Sound’s rather raunchy music video of models using power tools. Prior to the release of “Satisfaction,” Benassi had already achieved a number one in the UK club charts with his 2001 song “I Feel So Fine,” released under the moniker KMC. His debut album, “Hypnotica” was widely received, winning the European Border Breakers award at the end of 2004, selling the most albums outside of his home country of Italy.

As well as his solo releases, Benassi has collaborated with a number of artists also throughout his career. Together with vocalists Paul French and Violeta, who are known collectively as The Biz, and alongside his cousin Alle, they have produced records under the name of Benassi Bros. The project put the spotlight on the two vocalists, as well as other guest singers, releasing the album “Pumphonia” and “…Phobia” to moderate success.

Benny Benassi’s main forte is creating quality remixes of his contemporaries, with artists as diverse as OutKast, Goldfrapp and Felix da Housecat all getting the Benassi treatment. Benassi’s remix of Public Enemy’s classic track “Bring The Noise” was such a success it even won him a Grammy Award for the Best Remix (dance) in 2008. As well as his Grammy Award, Benassi has received many accolades and is consistently voted in the top 100 of DJ mag’s list of Top 100 DJs, voted number 27 in 2011.

As well as producing his own music, Benassi also founded the record label, Pump-Kin Music, which focuses on releasing the work lesser known DJs and producers in order to aid their exposure worldwide.

Benassi has lent his production talent to established artists including Madonna, producing three tracks for her “MDNA” album. “Beautiful People” on Chris Brown’s 2011 album “Fame” was also produced by Benassi. His 2010 song “Spaceship,” featuring Kelis was another successful collaboration, reaching number 18 in the UK Dance singles chart.
