Multo bene, Benny!! Italian superstar Benny Benassi has one of the most recognizable names in music. Whether you’re a college kid who cares more about getting wasted than what song is on, an electronic dance aficionado, a parent who loves the song from that one Wendy’s commercial, or someone who watches the Grammy’s, you know about Benny Benassi.

Benny has been winning awards ever since he stepped foot on the international stage. 2003 Revelation of the year at the Italian Dance Music Awards; 2003 Dance Revelation of the year at the Danish Music Awards; 2003 DJ Mag tune of the year (Satisfaction); 2004, highest new entry rating in the DJ Mag top 100 (18); 2004 Best Video at Dancestar, Miami; 2006, “Hit my Heart” selected as the opening for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show; 2008 Grammy for Best Remixed Recording (Public Enemy – Bring the Noise).

Some of Benny’s hottest tracks include “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme,” “Come Fly Away,” (with a sick remix by Adam K & Soha) “I Am Not Drunk,” “Love is Gonna Save Us,” (a personal favorite of Benny’s) and “Who’s Your Daddy.” (with a ridiculous David Guetta remix)

Benassi is currently working on a new artist album slated for release sometime this year. The first single is called “Spaceship,” and features Kelis, Apl.De.Ap. (Black Eyed Peas), and Jean Baptiste. Check out Italian superstar Benny Benassi Saturday night at Fur Nightclub.

{tab=Bio}
Benny Benassi was born in Milan in 1967 and then grew up in the provincial town of Reggio Emilia, Italy. He started dj-ing when he ws still at school and has been producing with his cousin Alle Benassi for about ten years at Off Limits studios. His first as a producer was with the track “I feel so fine” by KMC feat. Dhany which went to n°1 in the UK club charts in 2001.

The following year, working under the BENNY BENASSI presents THE BIZ trademark, Benny and Alle came up with “Satisfaction” and in one fell swoop ravaged the dancefloors and dominated sales charts round the world. The album “Hypnotica” followed. In the meantime Benny and Alle produced more melodic dance music under the Benassi Bros. banner. The charts of half the planet gave them thumbs up.

The Benassis have also remixed artists such as Outkast, David Guetta, Moby, Goldfrapp, Paul Oakenfold, Faithless and Public Enemy, to name but a few.

Benny has won tons of prizes and awards around the world and continues to tour the five continents with his unique style, once described as “electro, sort of house-tec, dirty and cool, sweaty and smooth”.B
In 2008 Benny and Alle won a Grammy Award for his remix of Public Enemy’s “Bring the noise”. The new album “Rock n Rave” contains tracks featuring Black Box, Farenheit, Dino Lenny, Mia J, Public Enemy, Channing and Iggy Pop.

His own productions are released through Energy Productions in Italy and Ultra in U.S.A. At the same time, Benny talent scouts for his own brand new label, Pump-kin, designed to create space for young djs and producers of electronic club music.{tab=Video}
