‘House of Beni’ is the title of the soon to be released debut album from Sydney DJ and producer Beni.
It has been described as a shape-shifting, solid state wall-of-dance sound.
Beni is undeniably a musical maestro of many faces and the last five years have seen him travelling the world with Bang Gang Deejays, release singles with Riot In Belgium (who are no longer), craft tunes for Kitsune and remixes for Tiga, Digitalism, Fischerspooner, La Roux and Alex Gopher to name just a few.
All of Beni’s focus has recently been turned towards his debut album now that he has been signed with Modular Recordings. Beni has criss-crossed the globe to put together an inspiring and impressive list of guests to add their own distinctive stylings to this musical medley.
Vocal contributors include Sam Sparro, Nomi (Hercules and Love Affair), Prince Terrence (Hussle Club) and Mattie Safer (formerly of The Rapture) and their are production contributions from local celebs Nicky Nighttime (Van She) and Kim Moyes (The Presets).
Riding high on the club charts across the world, and sparking it’s own dance craze, is the debut single “It’s A Bubble”.
The tracks on the album cover a lot of space musically speaking from smooth (‘Someone Just Like You’), deep (‘Yeah’), dark (‘Last Night’) and sparking (‘It’s A Bubble’)
As a celebration of the arrival of ‘House Of Beni’ there will be parties across the country with DJ Beni himself attending, along with an unpublicised list of friends from here and abroad. The only way to find out about the guests is to get to the show.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
