  • Purple Disco Machine & Benjamin Ingrosso’s Delightful ‘Honey Boy’


    Coming off his Coachella performance, multi-platinum artist and Grammy-Award winning producer Purple Disco Machine has teamed up with Swedish hit maker Benjamin Ingrosso, global music icon Nile Rodgers, and Jamaican rising star Shenseea to release their eagerly anticipated single, ‘Honey Boy’, out now via Sony Music Germany/RCA Records.

    Sweet Like Honey

    ‘Honey Boy’ sees the four musical powerhouses unite to create an electrifying summer anthem. The group combined the infectious grooves of classic funky Disco with modern Pop sensibilities. ‘Honey Boy’ transports listeners to a realm of pure euphoria with its rhythm, vocals and driving energy.

    The single has become a firm favorite in Benjamin Ingrosso’s captivating live performances. He introduced the song as a special addition to his sets. Inspired by its underlying funk vibes, Purple Disco Machine added his Nu Disco signature touch to the track setting the stage for a collaboration of epic proportions.


    Purple Disco Machine enlisted the legendary Nile Rodgers to add his trademark iconic guitar licks. As a result, they took the track to new heights. Shenseea emerged as the perfect addition, solidifying the track’s status as a surefire hit.

    Benjamin Ingrosso said: “I came up with ‘Honey Boy’ at a nightclub in Stockholm, carried away by the rhythm of a house beat that instantly had me humming along to what would become the chorus. (…) We all felt the potential the song had and that we had to add more talented influences to make it reach its full potential”. He then adds, “I reached out to Tino [Purple Disco Machine] to see if he wanted to finalise it with me, which he wanted! After having gone back and forth and crafted what we believed was the perfect foundation for the song, we reached out to Shenseea who joined in and added her touch to the record.

    “The final piece of the puzzle was when Tino got Nile Rodgers to add live guitar to the song, infusing the track with authentic disco-era vibes.”

    Purple Disco Machine adds: “Benjamin sent the track to me late last year and I was immediately intrigued by its hook, infectious melody and overall funky vibes. I just couldn’t wait to really upgrade and highlight the disco and funk sensibilities of this one. Shenseea’s voice just fits the song perfectly and really complements Benjamin’s amazing vocal performance”. And as a piece of Trivia, he didn’t hesitate to mention Rogders: “Obviously with an artist name like mine it is pretty easy to guess that Nile Rodgers is one of my all-time heroes and someone I always dreamed of working with. Legend doesn’t really cover it! I reached out to his team and was just so thrilled when his guitar lines came back“.

    “It’s the perfect match to this track and I could not be prouder to have my name with his on the artist credits. Just can’t wait to actually meet him.”
