Danny Tenaglia hasn't done it all, but give him a few more years and he'll finish off whatever few lifetime achievements a dance DJ needs after decades after establishing himself as a “right place right time” kind of guy. As a kid in New York City, he got to absorb the realest deal ever at legendary dance club Paradise Garage, and as he grew from matinee roller disco sets to meeting Michael Jackson at Studio 54 and pioneering gigs at the just-starting WMC, he stretched from a selector to a producer, remixer and curator of not just a sound but a philosophy – perhaps best summed up by his famous “Be Yourself” residency at Vinyl. He shook people up in 2012 when he put himself on hiatus – apparently to beat the burnout before burnout beat him – but now he's rested and ready to return.
