Danny Tenaglia takes it way back. His beats are basic and groovy in the way many old-school EDM fans yearn for – that syncopated, simple under-beat that drives the sound in the way the original house music did just a few decades ago. Now perhaps considered more tribal or progressive house, his techno roots are undeniable, and despite these labels, he is impressively willing to explore everything from minimalist sounds to full on house. A master and a classic, Danny Tenaglia will bring his audience back to some of dance music’s roots and engulf them with a much-needed trip back in time where the beats are simple and the sound is honest.
