Sensual. Sophisticated. Intoxicating. Three words that attempt to do justice to the Donny Benet experience. Armed with a Moog, a moustache and the need to continue the legacy of Moroder, Donny Benet is the dance floor commander that the world needs. From festival slots at Sydney Festival, Vivid Live, Mona Foma, Paradise, Carriageworks and Big Day Out, to a dinky little stage at the back of a Greek restaurant or a beer soaked carpet at a forgotten RSL, no space or stage is too strange for Donny Benet to dominate.
It’s a testament to his charisma and presence that his talents immediately enrapture any audience, no matter the setting. Word of his mesmerizing performances has spread quickly: in 2014 Donny Benet took out FBi Radio’s SMAC Award for Best Live Act. In 2014 he sold out album launch performances and a year later, during the 2015 BIGSOUND conference, Noisey heaped praise on Benet as the standout artist of the entire week, applauding his set as “…compulsory viewing for every single act attending the conference. This was a keynote f*ckin’ masterclass in How To Do It”.
With three smoking albums already under his belt, Donny Benet is working hard to bring that magical touch to a fourth album of musical aphrodisiacs, stay tuned and prepare to treat yourself.
