There is no better place to start delving into the rich history of the Benny Benassi career than with his international blockbuster, ‘Satisfaction’, and its game-changing music video which became his launch pad into stardom. Created in tandem with his cousin and fellow-producer, Alle Benassi, and inspired by the car horns outside an open street-facing window, this single catapulted into the charts with a #1 in France, #2 in the UK and Germany. Still 19 years on, this single has proved to be a massive success for Benny Benassi, continuously being one of the highlights of his live sets.
The next few years for Benny were a culmination of successes, whether it be the major festivals he went on the play (Coachella, EDC, Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland to name a few). The same year he won a Grammy Award for his groundbreaking remix of Public Enemy ‘Bring The Noise’ further catapulting the Benassi name into stardom.
In 2011, Benny teamed up with a star-studded album cast for his album ‘Electroman’ which featured T-Pain, Kelis, Jean–Baptsiste, and Apl.de.ap amongst others and most famously Gary Go with his chart-topping single ‘Cinema’. The Skrillex remix of ‘Cinema’ not only went Gold in the US and platinum in Australia and Canada but won the Benassi’s another Grammy whilst holding firm in the iTunes top 10 dance chart for over 6 months. Benny Benassi combined talents with Chris Brown to create one of the biggest cross-over dance records of its time with ‘Beautiful People’.
