http://www.A3Network.com Benny Benassi Ft. Gary Go "Cinema" LIVE. Filmed at Marquee Las Vegas. A 5th & Ocean Production. A native of Reggio Emilia, DJ/producer Benassi started DJing alongside cousin Alle Benassi in the late 1980s in their hometown, before moving to Larry Pignagnoli's Off Limits production studio in the mid 1990s, creating music for various acts, including Whigfield, J.K. and Ally & Jo. Benassi first hit the dance floor with his own projects in 2001 with the single "I Feel So Fine", released under the name KMC with vocals by Dhany, the track first stormed the charts in Benassi's native Italy, and soon became a number one hit in the UK club charts.
After moving from house to electro, "Satisfaction" took Benassi's success worldwide a year later with high-profile DJs like Carl Cox, Darren Emerson, and Roger Sanchez singing its praises. This reached Number 2 in the UK Singles Chart after the Ministry of Sound record company replaced the original video (an almost still picture of the band overlayed with graphics) with a video of models using power tools. Released in 2003, the campy and quirky Hypnotica was Benassi's solo debut. At the end of 2004, he won the European Border Breakers Award for Hypnotica, which racked up the most sales for an Italian album outside of Italy. Benassi often works with vocalists Paul French and Violeta, who are collectively known as The Biz.
Benassi also broadcasts a one hour long radio show titled 'The Benny Benassi Show' on Sirius XM Radio's channel Area. In 2010 Benassi released "Electro Sixteen" a video for Benny Benassi vs. "Iggy Pop", “Electro Sixteen,” out now on Ultra Records, an experimental music video featuring more than 15,000 photographs from his DJ set at New York’s Electric Zoo Festival, the video was premiered on YouTube.com.
