We’ve been to gigs in all sorts of locations from posh lounges to, well, motor speedways, but one place we certainly haven’t seen a big name DJ spin in is a — wait for it — Best Buy. You see, the one and only Benny Benassi played an exclusive DJ set for loyal fans in the electronics retailer’s Union Square location this past Monday — and of course we had to be there to tell you about it. Check it out after the break.
Mr. Electro Man himself started off at six on-the-dot with the original mix to “Cinema,” which get everyone in the crowd pumped right from the get go. After that was “Automatic B” — a track we didn’t care for when we reviewed Benny’s latest EP, but was almost enjoyable when drowned out by the screams of the crowd. (If you don’t believe us, watch the video below — it was crazy for 30 minutes straight!) The body movements continued as he dropped the classic “Satisfaction,” before his collaboration with T-Pain, “Electro Man.”
Though his set was not feature-length, Benny Benassi definitely packed a punch with his gig at Best Buy in NYC. He looked like he was genuinely enjoying every moment, rhythmically moving his body to the hooks and breaks of the tracks he played. Fans seemed to enjoy every minute of it, and were chanting “one more song” even after the man of the hour was accompanied away from the stage by his entourage. We’ve got tons more photos available at our Facebook page, so head on over for even more photographic evidence of this unique event and even more other goodies you won’t find on the front page of this website.
