Benny Rodrigues has infiltrated himself in the list of famous Dutch top DJs in a very short time. This Rotterdam born and raised talent with Portuguese blood understands the art of using the funk, of getting the dancing floor full and the room to its feet. Although confessed because of its groovy/funky (deep) tech-house sound with lots of detroit, minimal and acid influences , he also knows that he has to do some work now and then and he knows how he must use that hatchet, what results in a particularly strong and delightful portion of techno which remains above everything well digestible.
Meanwhile he has turn tabled at all the major and important clubs and festivals in the Netherlands.
On the international base he has showcased his skills around the rest of the world (Opium Garden Miami, Hao Man 17 Jerusalem, Resident-dj for Chris Liebing’s Spinclub night @ Space Ibiza & Privelege, Ibiza, Antwerp where he held a 3 year saturday night-residency at the famous Belgium superclub: Cafe d’ Anvers + the annual Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival (Movement/Fuse-in) where he is a gladly seen guest being invited twice (2005/2006) by the legends of techno: Derrick May & Kevin Saunderson).
Besides his huge (mainly dutch) amount of dj-gigs, Benny’s main focus nowadays is to produce music wich reflects his tipycal edge sound, so the rest of the world will get to know and experience where Benny Rodrigues musically stands for. With releases scheduled on Darren Emerson’s (ex-Underworld) Underwater Records and other very interesting upcoming projects he’s setting himself quite a good step in the right direction!
