BIG TUNES: BENNY BENASSI FEAT. JOHN LEGEND 'DANCE THE PAIN AWAY'

With Miller Genuine Draft

John Legend has lent his vocal talents to a whole range of artists over the years. From Jay Z and Lauren Hill, through to Skream & Benga's dubstep group Magnetic Man and even Kanye West. But the latest artist to call on the Grammy Award winning singer songwriter is Benny Benassi.

'Dance The Pain Away', which is out now on Ultra Records combines a rather saccharine vocal with the EDM template du jour; big synths, epic breakdowns and lots of pitch drop fills.

 With the catchy vocal and high-impact mentality, you can expect to be hearing this one on the radio all the way up to Christmas.

If that isn't to your taste however - Dyro, fresh from his crowning as Highest New Entry in the recently announced Top 100 DJs poll results - has added his trademark half-time groove to the track, elevating Legend's vocal and the whole track in the process. 

The main question is, who will Legend work with next?
