3 hours left till sunset. Sweat-soaked, hollow-cheeked disciples of the moment moving like synchronized machines to the rhythm of the everlasting 1-2-3-4. The bassdrum is stoically kicking, some percussion are clacking hollowly and between the sounds there is a synthetical bleeping. We find ourselves on the climax of the digital age, at some rave... The beat seems to last forever but the inner emptiness is constantly growing and growing. And suddenly..., a strange glow..., music..., life in eternal ice. BENNA has entered the decks and suddenly the sound temperature changes. Beats transform into heartbeats. In everyones inner self a warm shimmer forms and formerly lost and empty ravers start to reform into living creatures.
It`s as simple as that. You certainly can feel it when BENNA is at the controls. Though you can´t always tell that by the glimpse of an eye, he is rather this emotional type of guy. ... You might even notice that when you`re getting wobbly knees on the dancefloor, a flickering sight, when your heart is about to burst with heated felicity. As legend has it, once a young raver girl even melt away during one of his sets. There she lay as a self-sufficient puddle beneath the dancefloor reflecting the sky ... It is certain that the warm groove he composes in his DJ sets is indeed matchless. Deep house is his mission, but let me tell you: The guy can also rock the peaktime like hell! On the one side reduced and on the other straight forward but always with the right kind of bassline in mind. Far from any kind of randomness he fills the room with intensity and with his special grasp for the moment he seizes control over crowds, drives them to distraction, dragging them to the afterhour and back.
At the internationally renowned Harry Klein Club he has been resident since the very beginning after having played some irregular but rather sensational gigs at its predecessor, the legendary Ultraschall. Furthermore BENNA has been working with the associated Harry Klein Booking Agency right from the start. From the sets he played in Munich, he soon acknowledged international reputation as an exceptionally gifted turntablist, which resulted in gigs at Europe`s major clubs. He got portrayed as an up-and-coming talent by Groove Magazine in 2008 and the announcement of his own productions in addition to his eclectic DJing became recently realized on harry klein records.
