Electro master Benny Benassi is back with a danceable new earworm called "Back to the Pump." The Milan-born producer-DJ has been at the forefront of EDM culture for over a decade, since his 2002 hit "Satisfaction."

"'Back to the Pump' is the kind of back-to-basics club rocker for the core fans who've been supporting since 'Satisfaction,' and anyone else who enjoys it, of course!" Benassi tells Rolling Stone.

Full of perfectly timed build-ups, a head-banging beat, heavy drops and a catchy melody, the Grammy winner's latest jam is, unsurprisingly, an instant club classic. While the song honors Benassi's signature style, he has also figured out how to straddle this with the latest generation of techno-electro-house fans' expectations and preferences: the beat and melody are so relevant they feel almost, but not quite, recognizable.

Check out "Back to the Pump" exclusively here. It will be available for purchase on Beatport November 15th.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
