About Benny Benassi
A native of Milan, Italy, Marco
Benny Benassi would be born in 1967 and spend his youth in the city of Reggio Emilia. His first forays into music would come
in the late 80s, when Benny and his cousin would first start to dabble with DJing and production in their hometown. It wasn't
long before Benny's passion for music would lead him to a gig with the Italian based Off Limits production studio. He would
soon be writing and producing music for some of Europe's biggest acts, including Danish musician Whigfield. By 2001 Benny
would finally break into the industry under the moniker KMC, introducing himself to Europe's club music scene and beginning
his journey to becoming one of the most well known DJs in the world.
After his debut onto the music scene in 2001, Benny
would keep up his momentum and quickly receive praise both commercially and critically. Benny would continually expand his
horizons while experimenting with all the different sounds that electronica has to offer, including house, techno, and progressive
house. He would form a partnership with vocalist duo The Biz, which was made up of Paul French and Violeta. The three would
operate under the guise of the Benassi Bros, continuing to put out hits and laying the groundwork for Benassi's very own record
label Pump-Kin music. After Benassi's success with The Biz, who were previously not very well known, Pump-Kin Music would
be devoted as a platform to give support to up and coming performers.
Tallying success after success in writing music,
producing, and now entrepreneurial endeavors, Benny would start broadcasting The Benny Benassi Show on XM radio in late 2008.
His show would serve as a medium by which fans can keep up to date both on Benny's newest tracks as well as any artists Benny
is trying to promote.
The first track that would bring Benny Benassi to the ears of the
masses was "Satisfaction", off of Benny's debut album Hypnotica. "Satisfaction" would receive an instantaneous rave following,
catapulting Benassi into the club scene and peaking at number two on the UK music charts. The track would be become a pop
culture phenomenon, being featured in everything from commercials to cinema to video games. Hypnotica would top charts across
the UK, and besides "Satisfaction" would feature the other hit singles "Able to Live" and "Cinema". The record would also
receive a European Border Breakers Award in 2004 after having the most sales for an Italian album outside of Italy.
would follow up with Pumphonia and...Phobia in 2004 and 2005. The singles from both records included "Don't Touch Too Much",
"Hit My Heart", and "Make Me Feel" would receive radio play across Europe, consistently charting in the UK and becoming a
familiar fixture in the musical repertoire of DJs across Europe.
Benassi would stay active, releasing singles and remixes
regularly and snagging himself a Grammy in 2008 for a remix of Public Enemy's "Bring the Noise". He would release Rock 'n'
Rave in 2008 to much acclaim, then collaborate with Madonna on a remix of her single "Celebration". In the Ultra Records Top
100 DJ Poll, Benny would take the #26 slot, cementing his position as one of the most influential DJs of the decade.
Benny has always held a soft spot for up and coming artists who are trying to make a big break. He tries
to give yet unknown talent opportunities via his record label and collaborations.
Benny expands his music beyond just
audio platforms. Benassi has put effort into new and experimental video styles, including a video that contained over 15,000
photographs from one of his performances.
Benny has been a pioneer of 'pumping' on his tracks, incorporating compression
to create unique audio effects.
