Benny Benassi bio

Milan born Italian DJ/producer stalwart Benny Benassi has been widely regarded as one of the most charming, down to earth, and internationally respected artists in the music industry. With more than a decade to his illustrious career, this chart-topping megastar captured the hearts of multiple generations of EDM fans across the world with his flawless trademark tech/electro/house infused sounds and charismatic performance flair. Benny was propelled into his star-spangled career by his international hit single “Satisfaction” which was unleashed on the world back in 2002. Since then he has headlined performances at countless festivals around the globe (Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Movement, UV Nation and Labour of Love to name just a few); a string of high-profile remixes and collaborations with the likes of Madonna, Kelis and David Bowie. The most notable being “Beautiful People” with Chris Brown, as well as a radio show on Sirius XM’s Electric Area. Most noteworthy of all, was the Grammy awarded for his exceptional rework of Public Enemy. Benassi created a record label known as Pump-Kin Music. The focus of the label was primarily for new and unsigned producers. Through this venture, he hoped to give exposure to some of the lesser known DJ/production talents across the world. Benassi produced the track "Beautiful People" off Chris Brown's 2011 album F.A.M.E. and off Benassi's album Electroman released the same year. Electroman included several singles, such as "Cinema," "Electroman," "Spaceship," and "Control." In 2012, Benassi worked a second time with Chris Brown. He contributed to "Don't Wake Me Up" which was released as the fourth single of Brown's fifth studio album Fortune. Benny Benassi also worked with Madonna, producing three tracks for her latest album MDNA: Second single "Girl Gone Wild", "I'm Addicted" and "Best Friend" (the latter is a track which can be found on the deluxe edition of the album). In addition, Benassi produced "Stardust," a track of British singer-songwriter Mika's studio album The Origin of Love. Benassi also produced Anjulie’s latest single "You & I."
