Benny Benassi announces new Sofi Tukker collaboration 'Everybody Needs A Kiss'

MUMBAI: Legendary Italian producer and DJ Benny Benassi is back, this time teaming up with Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern best known as Sofi Tukker on the new track æEverybody Needs A Kiss.Æ

A storming summer anthem, the sultry single is led by the high-tempo beat of Benny Benassi, the mastermind behind the iconic, genre-defining electro house track æSatisfactionÆ and massive international hit æCinemaÆ featuring Gary Go. Everybody Needs A Kiss utilises a deep horn-led hook, and relies on strong melodic elements which look set to propel the track into the realms of 2018Æs biggest summer anthems.

Scoring huge success with their infectious hit æBest FriendÆ featuring NERVO, The Knocks, and Alisa Ueno which was later remixed by Heldeep label owner Oliver Heldens Sofi Tukker have received widespread praise across the board, with æEverybody Needs A KissÆ following the recent release of their album, æTreehouse.Æ ôI am a huge fan of Sofi Tukker and canÆt stop listening to their album,ö says Benassi. ôThey have it all: their sound, their style, their attitude, their look. ItÆs an absolute pleasure to be releasing a track together.ö

 Launched to stardom with his groundbreaking global smash æSatisfactionÆ and its game-changing music video, Benny Benassi solidified his mark as a pioneer in dance music with his trademarked infusion of house and electro. The world-class producer went on to win a Grammy in 2008 for his remix of Public EnemyÆs æBring The Noise,Æ further establishing the Benassi name and leading to production work with the likes of Madonna and John Legend, amongst others.

BenassiÆs star-studded 2011 album æElectromanÆ boasted an eclectic mix of international chart-topping tracks, including the Chris Brown collaboration æBeautiful People,Æ one of the biggest crossover dance records of its time. Following the release of 2016Æs æDanceaholicÆ, featuring yet another massive summer anthem with Brown, æParadiseÆ, his music continues to evolve whilst still remaining true to the very core of the Benassi sound.

Nominated for a Grammy for their genre-smashing previous release æDrinkeeÆ, which featured in AppleÆs commercial for the Apple Watch, New York-based Sofi Tukker continue to have blitz all before them, finding themselves playing in front of increasingly larger audiences, wowing clubs and festival stages all over the world. Joining forces with Benassi marks another highlight in the dance-pop duoÆs wildly successful year.

 ôWe love Benny. We had been fans of his and right when we met, he was so gracious, fun and kind. We immediately connected,ö says the pair of working with the famed producer. ôHe's really one of the nicest guys out there and he's such a talented DJ. We're so grateful to be able to make things with him!ö

An electrifying production from Benassi, whose double-decade career has seen him play across iconic stages such as Coachella, EDC, Ultra Music Festival, and Tomorrowland to name just a few, æEverybody Needs a KissÆ is out now.
