KEY Vinyl / Knotweed / Analog Solutions
Born in Normandy and now based in Paris, Benales has been honing his craft since the end of the ’90s. An avid record collector and enthusiast of techno and house - his vinyl only DJ sets and tracks combine the raw, dark and deep elements of these musical forms with a firm nod in the direction of Detroit.
His talent allows him to appear in many clubs in Europe like Tresor, Rex Club, Le Sucre, The Gate (Georgia), Spain, Netherlands… but also as a regular guest of Concrete when it’s not rare to find him surrounded by guests of great reputation like DVS1, Zadig, Surgeon, Steve Bicknell, DJ Pete, Antigone, James Ruskin, Zenker Brothers, Deepchord, Maurizio…
Fascinated by techno and the electronic coldness but always with a groove, Benales has released some EPs and remixes on Sino, a label formed by Technasia. This EP on Sino “Elements Part 1 & Part 2” took his career to a new level by offering him international visibility.
Now he continues to produce on labels like Suburban Avenue, Eduardo De La Calle’s Analog Solutions, Freddy K’s KEY Vinyl, Knotweed and Diffuse Reality.
