Celebrated New York DJ Danny Tenaglia will play a five-hour set at the Ivy on New Year’s Eve, with support from Irish duo Bicep, Cyril Hahn and English producer Will B.
An irrepressible force behind the decks, Tenaglia’s discography features the classic album Tourism, which spawned the classic cuts ‘Elements’ and ‘Music Is The Answer’, his Global Underground mix Athens and remixes of Madonna, Green Velvet, Faithless and a refashioning of Depeche Mode’s ‘I Feel Loved’ that received a Grammy nomination. He’s also released under the moniker of Code 718 and collaborated with Celada on many occasions; while ‘Music Is The Answer’ climbed the charts, it’s the Tenaglia-produced cut ‘Be Yourself’ from ’99 that still does the business in the clubs today. A veteran who has remained on the cutting edge of club music since starting out in the ‘70s, Tenaglia integrates his own edits into his DJ sets, which showcase the fruits of many, many hours of crate-digging (or the digital equivalent). “I simply live for the element of surprise and shock value of all sorts,” Tenaglia stated recently.
Presales go on sale Tuesday October 22, with first release tickets coming in at slightly under $100.
