In a market flooded with half-baked DJ mix compilations and second-rate club albums, it takes two giants to truly put the concept back on course. And what better way to do it than by getting a legendary figure like Danny Tenaglia to mix an album honouring one of the UK's most important club institutions, BackToBasic's. It's a marriage made in dance music heaven, the Joker, Dave Beer, in cahoots with the King of Clubs, Danny Tenaglia. The DJ's DJ, Danny has been constantly voted one of the best in the world. From his early parties in the meat-packing district of New York, to his mammoth sessions at the Miami Winter Music Conference and his weekly night, Vinyl,
"Back To Basics Presents 'Danny Tenaglia' (React) He doesn't do them often but when he does they are magic. Celebrating a decade of Back To Basics - the legendary Leeds club night - Danny captures the soul & spirit of what Basics is all about: Soulful but modern, musical not manic and very, very sexy. Danny's strength is that he loves tunes, irrespective of their age or rarity - this album is a portfolio of under-hyped gems and exclusives. CD1 has a more buoyant early evening feel (which for Tenaglia fans means 2am).
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
