Jellybean Benitez: Spinning the Globe

David Toop, The Face, October 1987

First it was Jellybean the DJ playing disco in a Bronx salsa club and helping launch post-video game dance music from New York's Funhouse. Then it was Jellybean the producer working with megastars like Whitney Houston and Madonna. Now it's time to seek solo status. Make room for Jellybean the concept.
