The Lab NYC is Mixmag and Smirnoff Sound Collective's weekly afterwork party where we stream the best American and international DJs from the intimate space connected to our Brooklyn office. Thursday May 18, Mixmag welcomed dance music icon Benny Benassi to play a special Lab NYC set.
As a name completely synonymous with electronic music and dance culture, Benny Benassi needs little introduction. He's best known as a multi-million selling record artist, a main stage champion and the producer behind arguably the biggest club track in history, 'Satisfaction'.
In past successes, Benassi has proved to be a superstar producer, working with the likes of T-Pain, Jean-Baptsiste and Skrillex, becoming a Grammy winning artist and performing on stage alongside John Legend.
Most recently, Benny released a new studio album in 2016. 'Danceaholic' was his first full LP in five years, placing on the Top 50 UK charts for 10 weeks and collecting 40 million Spotify streams.
The Smirnoff Sound Collective is all about bringing fans closer to the DJs, providing up and coming talent with a solid platform and throwing unique events where fans and artists can party together. Check out more from the Sound Collective here
