Mace (5)

Real Name:
Simone Benussi
As co-founder of Turbofunk collective RESET!, Mace travelled the globe, dj'ing between sweaty clubs, big rooms and festivals in Uk, Australia, Asia and Europe; released dance music on some of the world's finest labels (Dim Mak, Mad Decent, Southern Fried) and remixed international acts such as Fatboy Slim, Cassius, Robyn and many more.

But he started his hyperactive producer career crafting soulful beats as one half of "La Crème", releasing in 2003 their first album "L'Alba", considered a milestone in Italian underground Hip Hop.

That led him to be one of the most on-demand beat-makers in the country, and in the following years he produced and released more than 150 songs working with some of the biggest names in the game, like Jake la Furia, Marracash, Noyz Narcos, Clementino, Emis Killa, Rocco Hunt, Ensi, Nitro, Gemitaiz, Madman, Dargen, Kaos, Colle Der Fomento and many more...

But producing beats for other people started to feel too narrow and limited for him, so in 2007 he co-founded RESET!
While organizing one of the biggest club-nights in Milano, they started together to merge their Hip Hop background with electro and sweaty 70's Funk crafting their very unique Turbofunk sound. It suddenly gathered support from Radio BBC1 and numerous international dj's and led to dj-gigs all over the world and high profile remixes.

In late 2013 he started focusing back on his solo productions, blurring the lines between hip hop, trap, twerk and sub-driven dance music.

His first solo releases are a single (Aug 2013) and an EP (Sep 2013) on Starkey's label "Seclusiasis" based in Philadelphia, an official remix for Italy's finest rapper Marracash (Universal) and his first single on Bot / Astronomar / Neoteric prestigious imprint "Main Course"
