Donny Benét

Donny Benét: the man with the budgie smugglers packed with a drum machine and a moog synth, ready to spurt Italo disco funk at you in the heat of the moment. The Don is a warm-blooded mammal animated by the vocation of producing sexual ballads that will make you blossom across the seasons, even when at your lowest. If you’re wondering what this mysterious loverboy sounds like, just think of yourself sitting on a beach on the Italian Riviera, an ice-cold rosé by your side, watching the blaze of a golden sun dashing crystals on the surface of the water. When we were told he was embarking on tour numero dos across Europe, we decided in a heartbeat to catch a glimpse of the life of this casanova from Don-under in his natural habitat.
