Benzi is a busy man. International DJ. Record label head honcho. Brand builder. Radio host. Genre chemist. He may have been born and bred in Michigan--where he's still based out of to this day--but the man gets around. And his reach is only growing.

Armed only with access to a burgeoning DJ scene online and an insatiable hunger, Benzi was able to kick off his career from a college dorm room with the instant classic "We Got The Remix" series. He worked with artists like Clipse, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Kanye West on the series, and has since performed alongside LMFAO, Gym Class Heroes, Diplo, and Wiz Khalifa. In addition to his own international club appearances, Benzi has been the tour DJ for Chiddy Bang, Travie McCoy, Mike Posner, and Big Sean, to name just a few.

But rap (and trap) doesn't make a career the way it used to. As such, Benzi has used his immaculate taste and outside-the-box thinking to collaborate on projects with brands such as Red Bull, Mountain Dew, Young & Reckless, PLNDR, Sony, Karmaloop, Pepsi, Budweiser, and 10*Deep. He's also performed at large scale events including the Super Bowl, MTV Spring Break, Lollapalooza, and US Open of Snowboarding.

In 2011, Benzi teamed up with long time collaborator and friend Mike Posner to launch "The Mike Posner Show with DJ Benzi" on Sirius/XM Radio, and also founded his record label Get Right Records, which has helped launch new acts Solidisco and Silver Medallion. He has also collaborated with Diplo twice to produce albums for Mansions on The Moon and Paper Route Gangstaz, both of which were critically acclaimed and cultivated by cult enthusiasts.

It's been busy and the business has paid off, in the quality of music and because people have definitely paid attention. Benzi has been name-dropped by New York Post's Page 6, MTV News, The Washington Post, XXL, Pitchfork, Young Hollywood, Rolling Stone, and many, many more. He's toured countless times all over America and sold out gigs in Australia, Germany, South America, Vancouver, Oslo, Sweden and yes, more.

But the building is only beginning. In 2013 he formed the supergroup TWRK with DJ eSenTRIK and they instantly took over the emerging 100bpm/twerk/bounce scene and are working on their debut EP for Mad Decent as you read this. In addition, Benzi has become a resident on BBC Radio 1 / 1Xtra on the popular Diplo & Friends program with new shows every other month. And Benzi thought he was busy before.
