Based on the DJ List – which I gather is something like college football's BCS Standings – Italian dance-floor maven Benny Benassi is currently the fourteenth-ranked DJ in the world. But don't worry, Benny, you'll always be, uh, No. 4 with us! (And you'll move up, we swear — just wait until Oakenfold, Van Dyk and Tiësto retire.) But like that Big Three, Benassi's known for spinning epic sets for sweaty throngs, his weapons of choice being relentless Euro-house beats and grimy, sexalicious electro grooves. He's been working the decks for close to twenty years now—and even if you have no idea who he is, you've likely heard his 2003 dance-floor banger "Satisfaction" via a ubiquitous Wendy's commercial. He'll most certainly have those burger butts shakin' at this gig, which will probably center around his recent Cooking for Pump-Kin mixes.
