Aldo Benítez aparece en la escena musical de Buenos Aires en 2006.
Ha realizado shows en Córdoba, Mendoza, Neuquén y en diversas ciudades de GBA y alrededores. También tocó en España, Noruega y Alemania.
En 2007 edita su disco debut “El Portafolio Sin Peso” (Peatón Discográfica), un disco visceral, directo e introspectivo a la vez, que grabó enteramente en una habitación en su casa de Morón, junto al músico y productor Ismael Pinkler.
El disco fue elegido como “Disco del año” en la encuesta del Suplemento Sí de Clarín por dos artistas tan diversos como Ale Sergi (Miranda!) y Santiago Motorizado (El Mató a Un Policía Motorizado).
Hacia fines de 2007 vieron la luz dos tracks con su participación, por un lado el tema "Sapo" co-compuesto con el músico Marcelo Fabián editado en su disco "Sed de Mal" (Ultrapop 2007) y por otro el cover de Juanito el cantor "Ay, mi gorrión" editado en el compilado "Planeta Oeste" (FM en Tránsito).
En 2009 vió la luz un disco de remixes del disco debut de Aldo llamado "El Portafolio Sin Un Peso" (Peatón Discográfica), com remixes de Daniel Melero, Chancha Vía Circuito, DJs Pareja, Gustavo Lamas e Ismael Pinkler, entre muchos otros.
En 2010, colabora con el músico Marcelo Fabián, firmando juntos el disco "Marcelo & Aldo" (Peatón Discográfica).
A partir de ese mismo año lleva adelante su sello de casetes llamado "Spit On BPM" con el que edita música propia y ajena con un tono más experimental y repercussion inmediata en el circuito underground europeo.
En Agosto de este año fue lanzado el primer corte de “Tonelada”, el Segundo disco de estudio de Aldo, la canción se llama “Efecto” y cuenta con la colaboración de la chilena Javiera Mena. En el disco participan: Luciano Lasca en bajo y coros además de Andy Menutti, Guillermo Ruiz Díaz y Leo Santos en batería y percusión.
La producción estuvo a cargo de Gabriel Lucena.
El disco saldrá a principios de noviembre a través de Peatón Discográfica.
ENGLISH TXT: Aldo Benitez was born in Morón, province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1980. He took his first steps in the world of music with an acoustic guitar that only had two thick strings and a broken body. After taking some classes on how to play the electric bass with Anael Cantilo –among other teachers– he went on to play this instrument with two successive bands (Sandelius and Karaoke Warriors), which he formed with Coiffeur, also known as Guillermo Alonso (another composer from the west of Buenos Aires) and other high-school friends such as Fernando Radl from Yicos. At the same time, Aldo would fill up cassette tapes with songs he never dared to play with his band, or songs he seldom played. In 2001, he made a third musical attempt before launching his solo project, called Rock Set, consisting of an experimental music duet involving artist Coiffeur. Rock Set included two keyboards for children, whose sounds were played and processed in real time with electric-guitar and bass pedals. In 2005, he contributed some lyrics (“Buenos Recuerdos” or “Good Memories”) to Coiffeur’s first record, called Primer Corte (First Cut). To Aldo’s great surprise, those lyrics ended up as part of Uruguayan artist Dani Umpi’s third novel. While working on these projects, Aldo became one of the founding members of Colectivo RudaMacho (2002-2005), a cycle known for the parties that bear the same name. He actively helped create the cycle’s atmosphere and contributed to the recording of videos, among other activities including a mini-party in the hallway of the Ruth Benzacar Art Gallery. This event was held as part of a contest called Curriculum 0, 2005 Edition, where Colectivo RudaMacho was pre-selected. In early 2006, Rock Set finally turned into an intermittent project, and Aldo became intensely focused on his solo career. He started to perform live with an electric guitar for kids, an MP3 player with tracks previously recorded with Abletone Live!, and a floor microphone to sing into. On certain occasions –basically, when there was a video projector available– the music tracks were accompanied by videos. In mid-2006, Aldo started to record/compose what would be his first long-play record, “El portafolio sin peso” (A Weightless Briefcase), technically supervised by musicians Ismael Pinkler and Gabriel Lucena (Entre Ríos, AUTO). Aldo did the programming, recorded vocals, and played the guitar and bass for the making of this album, which was finally launched in July 2007 by PEATON Discográfica, Aldo’s recent venture in the record company industry. Two other tracks involving Aldo will have seen the light of day by the end of the year: on the one hand, there is “Sapo” (Frog), a song co-written with Marcelo Fabián, to be launched by record company “Sed de Mal”. On the other, there is this cover of the song “Ay, mi gorrión” (Oh My Sparrow), originally performed by Juanito, to be launched as part of the album “Planeta Oeste”.
