Jellybean Benitez is famous for his work as a producer and remixer for artists such a Madonna, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, and the Pointer Sisters. His remixes for Madonna’s self-titled debut album, including singles such as “Everybody” and “Lucky Star,” helped rocket her to early fame. Benitez was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and was ranked by Billboard Magazine in 2016 as one of the most successful dance artists of all time.

Jellybean Benitez is also the owner of Jellybean productions, Jellybean Soul, and Jellybean Music Group. He is now the Executive Producer of Studio 54 Radio, which launched in 2011, featuring 1970s and 1980s classic dance selections.

D Train was a prominent R&B/Dance duo with several Billboard hits in the early 1980s. The Brooklyn, NY based duo of James D-Train Williams and Hubert Eaves III, met in high school and later teamed up to produce hits such as “Something’s On Your Mind,” “You’re The One For Me,” “Keep On,” and “Music.”  After the group’s dissolution, Eaves went on to work with artists such as Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Luther Vandross, and Williams found continued success as a solo artist.
