Summer Hit-Makers: Benny Blanco Douses Us with Britney's "Gasoline"

blanco051111_1_blog.jpgTo prep your playlist for the summer season, Details turned to the producers responsible for some of the catchiest singles in recent memory to find out the songs they'll have you hooked on next. Today it's Benny Blanco.

Producer: Benny Blanco.
Backstory: After cutting his first track for a porno film, the 23-year-old Virginian (a.k.a. Benjamin Levin) hustled his way into partnerships with producer Disco D and rapper Spank Rock. He was couch-surfing in Brooklyn when über-producer Dr. Luke took him under his wing, helping earn him credits on tracks by Ke$ha and Katy Perry.
Signature Sound: Call it bubblegum rap — bouncy tunes and fluid verses designed to boost adrenaline.
2011 Summer Jam: Britney Spears' "Gasoline".
