Benassi started his career as a DJ alongside his cousin Alle Benassi in the late 1980s in their hometown, before moving to Larry Pignagnoli’s Off Limits production studio in the mid 1990s. Benassi hit the dance floor first in 2001 with his own projects, with the single “I Feel So Fine”, released under the name KMC with vocals by Dhany, the track first stormed the charts in Italy, and after became a number one hit in the UK.
Benassy moved from MYhouse to electro, “Satisfaction”, what took Benassi’s success worldwide a year later with skilled DJs like Carl Cox, Darren Emerson, and Roger Sanchez. This reached Number 2 in the UK Singles Chart after the Ministry of Sound record company changed the original video into a video of models using power tools. Released in 2003, “Hypnotica” was Benassi’s solo debut.
At the end of 2004, he won the European Border Breakers Award for Hypnotica, which proved the most sales for an Italian album outside of Italy. Benassi often works with vocalists Paul French and Violeta, known as The Biz.
Benassi then produced a group called “Benassi Bros” with his cousin Alle, a project designed to shine the spotlight on the two Biz vocalists, Paul French and Violeta and other guest singers. A year after the release of Hypnotica, Pumphonia marked their first full length release. And then in 2005, Benassi Bros. released their second album “Phobia”.

In 2005, Benassi produced the record Pump-Kin Music.Through this venture, he hopes to expose some of the less known DJ/production talents across the world. In August 2007, Benassi released a remix of Public Enemy’s “Bring the Noise”.In February 2008 “Bring the Noise” won a Grammy for best Remix (Dance). His latest album Rock ‘n’ Rave was released on June 16, 2008. The first single from the album was “I Am Not Drunk.” Benassi also broadcasts on Sirius XM Radio’s channel Area, a one hour long radio show called “The Benny Benassi Show”.
