About Benny Benassi
Can't get no Satisfaction? Don't tell that to fans of Marco Benassi, better known by his stage name Benny Benassi. He is an Italian DJ and record producer, and best remembered for monster summer hit still popular more than a decade later.
It's hard to believe now that Benassi -- who works as a producer in collaboration with his cousin – has been around as long as he has. In fact, his first club hit was "I Feel So Fine" by KMC featuring Dhany all the way back in 2001. It quickly climbed the charts, making it all the way to No. 1 on the UK club charts. Oddly enough, Benassi quickly switched gears despite the success and moved from house to electro. The gamble paid off.
The single "Satisfaction," from the 2002 album "Hypnotica," had vocals consisting of two speech synthesizers repeatedly saying "Push me and then just touch me 'til I can get my satisfaction." It was Benassi's official debut single and his most successful song, climbing the charts, appearing in a number of TV shows and video games, and a massive commercial success in France (where it was the 48th best-selling single of the 21 century).
The career highlights that followed have more than kept Benassi relevant in the music world. In 2003 he was No. 1 in the Top 100 dance tracks on Ministry of Sound, and earned the DJ MAG tune of the year in the UK. The following year he racked up three nominations at Dancestar, Miami and won the best video award. He was also No. 18 in the DJ MAG favorite DJ Poll Top 100, the highest new entry.
Benassi is still known for his unstoppable energy, and in the past few years has worked with Chris Brown, Madonna and British singer-songwriter Mika.
