Benny Benassi is the epitome of veteran in the EDM industry. "Satisfaction" surfaced circa 2002 on his first album "Hypnotica" (before most of today's DJs stepped onto the scene) and raised the bar up on electronic music forever. But no he didn't stop there, oh no no no, following up his freshman album with another 4 incredible albums including Electroman (2011) making it abundantly clear that he is only growing better and basically has it down to a secret science in which you couldn't even fathom what he has planned for 2012. Benassi has crafted his skills far beyond an artisan level in the past 12 years in his tech house game with performances that are detrimental to your hearing, no joke. I was graced with the opportunity to video graph the master hard at work at Lavo NYC back in February 2012 and was left in awe after his immaculate performance. Working with Madonna, Chris Brown, and T-Pain, (to name a few you know) Benassi's support is known to bring the heat. So on June 09, 2012 at Governor's Island he will be spinning with a few artists who have taken it to the HOUSE this past few months: Hardwell, Bingo Players, and DallasK. At a beautiful outdoor venue like this? With a guaranteed amazing performance like that? During the summer? With a promotional company like Made Event behind it? Psh, you know you can't miss it.
The event runs from 4:00pm till 12:00am and is an 18+ event.
Check out some of these videos I took of Benny Benassi at Pacha NYC on January 1, 2012.
