Watch & Listen
Born and raised on a small island just outside of Detroit, DJ Benzi has Club Highlights separated himself from the competition over his 26 years. After picking
up his degree in Business Economics at Western Michigan University, Benzi relocated to Ann Arbor to pursue a career in the entertainment field full time. He started growing his roots as a Club DJ at the age
of 17, but it wasn't until he started producing and hitting the mixtape circuit that he really started gaining the attention he deserved.
In the past two years Benzi's buzz has skyrocketed on the strength of his patented "refixes," especially the refreshing work he has done with the Clipse and Lil Wayne on the popular "We Got The Remix" series.
DJ Benzi is most known for his creative twist on bridging the club/DJ culture with that of commercial hip-hop.
The Detroit-area remix maven is rapidly gaining notoriety and in 2008 alone he was selected to URB Magazine's Next 100 list and has shown
up in Fader Magazine, Rolling Stone, XXL, The Washington Post, and MTV. His buzz grew deafening at the end of 2008 when he released an official remix project with Kanye West & Plain Pat entitled "Sky High."
The project received 350,000 listens within its first day of release, making it one of social networking site Imeem's most streamed media. Also in 2008, Benzi teamed up with his friend Diplo to produce the Paper Route Gangstaz "Fear & Loathing In Hunts Vegas" mixtape, which Pitchfork Media gave an outstanding 7.8 rating.
Along with the remix albums, his own debut album, "Get Right," on Amalgam Digital is in the works with a release date set for this summer. Over the last two years Benzi has also been on the road rocking shows
all over the world and performing along side talent such as Diplo, the Clipse, the Cool Kids, Mick Boogie, and many other big names.
