It’s no secret that America has a tumultuous relationship with electronica. Despite the plethora of EDM pap the yanks have spat out throughout the naughties, the USA boasts a core group of strong, and mostly heritage, acts, who continue to steamroll a path for quality house and techno. New York (via Miami) music legend, DANNY TENAGLIA is one such heritage talent, who is flying his flag high for the ongoing merit of Stateside techno selectors. His latest release is a 2-disc mix for Australian series “Balance” and is his first compilation in six years.
It’s a weird and wonderful mix of technoid grooves, tribal-tinged rhythms and rumbling bass lines, with a heavy dose of that hard-to-put-your-finger-on magic that can only come from Tenaglia. If you’re a thundering techno-head, old or new, you’ll like this – this is one for the DJ’s DJ.
Balance 25 is out September 25th and available through Amazon.
