Benedek Benedek

Post-disco R&B and the early house music it birthed, along with the progressive funk of Dâm-Funk, are among the influences absorbed by Nicky Benedek. The Los Angeles native made his debut after he sought out Dâm-Funk at a Funkmosphere night in nearby Culver City. Dâm obliged by composing the lyrics for “That’s My Jam!” and also fronting the track, released as the A-side to Benedek’s 7″ 2011 debut for the Proximal label.

An untitled full-length for Peoples Potential Unlimited followed two years later. After a handful of 12″ releases, including a collaboration with Martine Syms, were released during 2015 and 2016, Benedek completed the Bene’s World LP, which Leaving issued in 2017.
Additional Benedek output has been credited to C.O.O.L. Band and Manzanem, and he has recorded as Rx with Delroy Edwards. His latest project, the Earlyman Dance E.P. was released on Second Circle, sub-label of legendary Amsterdam label Music From Memory.
