Having trademarked his unique infusion of house and electro early on, his music continues to inspire and evolve whilst still remaining true to the very core of the Benassi sound.
Benny Benassi will perorm at DupleX, The Rooftop Venue in Prague on 8th September which is incredibly twelve years since his last performance in the Czech Republic which took place in Brno at the Cybertronic party and in support, Mauro Picotto. This year’s supporting DJs will be representatives of the Czech scene which we will gradually unveil on Facebok event page https://www.facebook.com/events/1834593239932525/
Benny Benassi has a stunning list of successes, whether it be the major festivals he went on the play (Coachella, EDC, Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland to name a few) or his next artist album, Rock N Rave in 2008. The same year he won a Grammy Award for his ground breaking remix of Public Enemy “Bring The Noise” further catapulting the Benassi name into stardom.
In 2011, Benny Bennassi 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”.
