Mixtape Monday Featuring Beni

TiltAdmin on February 8, 2010 - 9:27 pm in TiltMag Mixtape Series

As stated in Beni’s Jan 2010 Press Release:

Beni’s “Maximus” (his sexed up collaboration with Sam Sparro) out late last year has been nothing short of an inter-web sensation.

The video (featuring a dozen pint-sized dancing dynamos – watch it here or below) clocked in over 100,000 views in a couple of days. The slew of top shelf remixes, including re-rubs by Harvard Bass, Jori Hulkkonen and Senor Stereo to name but a few, have been the toast of the dancefloor and set the blog community into overdrive. The Harvard Bass mix in particular reached the upper echelons of blog and dance charts around the world. “Maximus” received mighty accolades from Beni’s musical peers and got mighty props across the UK Dance Magazine’s “Best of lists” for the year…

On top of two Japanese tours, a European tour, a national tour of Australia with Parklife festival, Beni assembled one half of Ministry of Sounds ‘Mashed 5’ compilation and most recently has been working away feverishly on album number one. The album promises to encapsulate the sound of one long night out around the world and back. Beni’s been collaborating with guests everywhere from Sydney to Paris, Tokyo to Mexico.

February means studio time in the USA, and while he’s there he’s decided to treat some of his favorite cities with some DJ Sets.
