About Benny Benassi
With an impressive career spanning more than twenty years, Benny Benassi is one of the most successful and influential record producers and djs of all time.
Any short biography of Benny is bound to leave a lot out, bike tours, accolades, awards, shows, collaborations, a forthcoming documentary and more.
But here are some highlights for the curious!
Satisfaction released in 2002 is a ground-breaking, genre-defining hit that changed the sound of dance music, charted at top 40 around the globe and is played as much today as when it was first released.
In 2008, Benny won a Grammy Award for his remix of Public Enemy’s Bring The Noise, one of the first recordings ever to combine European electrohouse beats with American hiphop vocals, cementing Benny’s status as a trailblazing pioneer of the commercial electronic music scene.
In 2011, he released his seminal third album Electroman which included worldwide smash hits Beautiful People with Chris Brown and Cinema with Gary Go.
Skrillex’s famous remix of Cinema won another Grammy Award and remained in the Top40 charts for four continuous years. Most recently, Benny celebrated the 10th anniversary of Cinema with a killer remix from superstar Swedish duo, Galantis.
As Benny’s star continued to rise, he teamed up with Madonna and produced the single Girl Gone Wild plus several other tracks on the MDNA album, which fully confirmed Benny’s place as one of the very best producers in the world! Five years after his first album, Benny dropped Danceaholic, led by the hit single and summer anthem Paradise, once again with Chris Brown.
There is a long, rich list of other A-list artists Benny has collaborated with that deserve a mention, ranging from John Legend to Lil Yachty, and T Pain to Serj Tankian from System of a Down, further illustrating the depth and breadth of Benny’s influence.
There is an equally long list of seminal remixes for, among a laundry list of others others, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Giorgio Moroder and the Rolling Stones.
Over the last two years, the music has kept flowing which has kept Benny’s status as a tastemaker intact, as his latest chart-topping release with Jeremih, LOVELIFE, clearly shows.
If you are enjoying the music, Benny is succeeding in doing what he always set out to do – to convey his passion to other people.
