Classics: Danny Tenaglia + Celeda – Music Is The Answer (Dancin’ And Prancin’) (Danny Tenaglia’s Tourism Mix) (Twisted America Records)
“Music is the answer (to your problems), keep on movin’…”
Danny Tenaglia is most likely the depositary of a progressive NYC culture. Starting as a record collector on his early teens, he then became an unconditional fan of The Paradise Garage. And, by that, of his resident DJ Larry Levan. This before so to say transgressing the codes of a local club scene most likely geared towards the roots of Black Music. Meanwhile adding elements inherited from Europe on his productions.
A purveyor of Progressive/Tribal House jams… He also managed to be one of the most spectacular DJ’s during his sets at the Twilo and the Tunnel. And he unsurprisingly stands as one of the key figures in the history of House Music.
We catch him back in 1998 on the bumpin’ ‘Music Is The Answer’. One of his biggest classics as a matter of fact. This sharing the bill with Chicago native singer Victoria Sharpe, better known as Celeda…
