One of THE most legendary DJs and producers of all time, John “JELLYBEAN” Benitez’s road to stardom has been paved by remixing some of the most famous artists of all time. Situated between the mainstream & underground, his influence on the last 40 years of music cannot be understated.

Spinning records at iconic NYC clubs like Studio 54, Experiment 4 & Electric Circus, he began to work with folks like Stephen
Bray of Breakfast Club, who then introduced him to Madonna.
This was a pivotal moment in Jellybean’s career, and the start of a phenomenal relationship with the artist, resulting in unforgettable remixes like ‘Everybody’, ‘Borderline’, and ‘Lucky Star’. Churning out club-ready versions of hit songs by Madonna, Whitney Houston, Afrika Bambaataa, The Talking Heads and many more, tracks like these and his 1984 cover of ‘The Mexican’ are now regarded as pivotal moments in electronic, pop, RnB and hip hop history.

Inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame, today he owns Jellybean Productions, Jellybean Soul and Jellybean Music Group, and keeps dancefloors moving around the world.
