Danny Tenaglia mixes Balance 025


Danny_Tenaglia.jpgBalance Music have revealed internationally revered DJ Danny Tenaglia has mixed their forthcoming ‘Balance 025’ compilation.The release will be the New Yorker’s first compilation in six years, so why now? “When I was asked to do this for Balance, I did some research and felt a connection. Balance is a ‘quality, not quantity’ record label and I already respected all of the artists on their roster and thought it would be a great outlet for me to also share a bit of my journeys with people who passionately love dance music,” says Danny, who really put this theory into practice, meticulously editing every track on the double CD release.Danny goes on to explain his traditionalist stance on compilation records: “I still strongly believe that nothing will ever compare to the feeling you get when you pick up a record or disc, place it in your player, sit back and listen while holding on to the cover and reading the liner notes and looking at the photos” he says. “It takes people’s minds closer to what the true spirit and nature of the project is really all about. I also believe that is extremely important to avid fans and collectors to know as much info as possible regarding each track and who else may have been involved in the process. This is sadly missing from digital downloads. You almost never get to know anymore who the musicians, singers, engineers, and other important people involved are and way too often today the artist and remixers on many releases hog all the credit, and it’s just not fair. I never believed in that. When you give proper credit you receive proper credit.” 

‘Balance 025’ hones in on a tougher sound than Danny’s fans may be used to, but his personal twist is still easily recognisable. The album features offerings from the likes of Reboot, Talismann, Basement Jaxx, Hot Since 82, Antigone and Exploit, with Oscar Mulero and Alex Under amongst those on remix duty.Set to be one of the year’s most essential compilations, ‘Balance 025’ is out September 15th.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
