Benassi Bros feat. Dhany

Benassi Bros. is an Italian dance group. The members of the group, Benny Benassi and Alle Benassi, started DJing in the late '80s in their hometown, before moving to Larry Pignagnoli's Off Limits production studio in the mid-'90s, creating music for various acts, including Whigfield, J.K. and Ally & Jo. Despite the name "Benassi Bros.", Benny Benassi and Alle Benassi are actually cousins.
Italian born Daniela Galli, in art DHANY, is generally considered to be one of the best white soul voices on the dance scene.
Strongly influenced by American R'n'B vocal styles, the warmth and range of her vocal prowess stands out a mile both on stage and in the studio.

Her collaborations with the studio group KMC have resulted in two hot dance-soul singles: SOMEBODY TO TOUCH ME and STREET LIFE both of which have had international releases and substantial club chart success. Dhany's first solo single DHA DHA TUNE (with dazzling video to match) became a pan-European clubland must and is a modern classic.

QUIERO RESPIRAR shows the "caliente" soul of this superb performer and her ability to switch netween English and Spanish with ease and grace. In 2000, Dhany guested on I WANNA BE FREE, the debut single by MUMM.
Her third solo single SHUT UP was also released to international dance-floor acclaim.

In 2001, a new KMC feat DHANY single, I FEEL SO FINE, was released in UK, USA and many other territories. It soon dominated club charts the world over and went high into the UK sales charts. In the meantime QUIERO RESPIRAR became a smash hit in South America.

She has taken a break from dance music to concentrate on an Italian pop project in a band called LINKS which has been giving Dhany a lot of airplay and touring recently.

An old recording she made was sampled on a track featured on the forthcoming Benassi Bros album.
