With a slew of popular remixes under his belt already, Matt DiMona has kept himself busy while at USC. As the creator of several tracks totaling over 5 million plays, it goes without saying that DiMona is popular with more than just his peers on campus. Emboldened by the success of remakes like “90210” and “Devil And the Deep Blue Sea”, DiMona released his first original work last October. The sultry “I Just Want You” as it was titled, was merely a taste of what was to come from the young producer. Continue reading

[Electronic] Super Duper – Angela

Coming from the depths of Soundcloud to gain a respectable fan base is an insurmountable challenge for most producers. While all it takes is a single breakthrough production, it also requires a mix of luck and self-promotion in order to make waves and take off. This path to success has been replicated by the likes of Ryn Weaver, Khai, and Bryson Tiller. While it isn’t exactly a hotbed for electronic producers, Nashville-based producer Super Duper has made a big splash this week with his lone release, titled “Angela”.

Next Up in TMN Residency: Benny Benassi

Benny Paradise Press Shot

Our Artist Residency program is one of our most prized possessions. Every month, we get to shine a spotlight on one of our favorite artists, showcasing them through a string of exclusive pieces. We try to rotate from month-to-month, as well, giving you a taste of both legendary and unknown artists. Well, this month falls under the former, as we welcome in long-time dance music icon Benny Benassi.

For us, our infatuation began early in Benny’s career. In fact, we were in attendance at his very first appearance in Denver at The Church Nightclub. The anticipation for this show was overwhelming, partly because Denver didn’t have the bustling music scene that it does now, especially when it came to dance music. The other reason was, of course, due to the tremendous success his global smash hit “Satisfaction,” from his debut album Hypnotica. The show was one that has stuck with us to this very day.

After that memorable tour, Benny continued his storied career, playing festivals like Coachella, EDC, Beyond Wonderland, and so many more, in addition to releasing two more albums, Phobia and Rock N Rave. As if the millions of adoring fans, and a stellar collection of originals and remixes wasn’t enough to solidify his legacy, he also added a Grammy to the list in 2008 for his remix of Public Enemy’s “Bring the Noise.”

2011 brought another strong pillar to his resume, as the world became enamored with the release of “Cinema” which dropped on his fourth album, Electroman. Subsequently, a young, quickly rising producer by the name of Skrillex got his hands on it, and both his remix, and the original were cemented in dance music history. Following that, the hits continued to come through collaborations with Chris Brown on “Beautiful People,” and John Legend on “Dance The Pain Away.”

With the recent release of his fifth album earlier this month with Ultra Records, we figured it would be a perfect time to rope him in to be our Resident Artist for the next few weeks. Stay tuned for some exclusive content from one of the industry’s best and brightest.
