Some say that birthdays past a certain age aren't worth celebrating, but when a dance music icon like Benny Benassi celebrates a birthday, each one is a milestone. To commemorate his 53rd birthday, the legendary Grammy Award-winning DJ and producer has curated a dazzling playlist exclusively for EDM.com.
Ahead of the release of his forthcoming single "I'll Be Your Friend," a highly anticipated collaboration with fellow house music luminary Cece Rogers, Benassi concocted his EDM.com playlist to offer up a serendipitous taste of honey to those who can't wait for the hive. You can pre-save the single here ahead of its July 17th, 2020 release.
Honing in on his pioneering sound and tried-and-tested selection abilities, Benassi curated a mix that moonlights as a scintillating song-cycle of melodic and tech house, proving that he remains ageless—and will for many birthdays to come.
