Danny Tenaglia is like the Robert De Niro of DJs,
in that he can phone in an apparently effortless performance that leaves most of his peers looking lightweight. Not that Tenaglia would ever be so lazy, as his reputation built on epic 12-plus-hour sets at legendary clubs like Vinyl attests. But just as De Niro now seems to be playing himself in whatever film he's in, so Tenaglia has developed an instantly identifiable signature style: the thundering tribal and progressive sound splashed with sex and sassiness, which defined his still classic Global Underground compilations. It's a sound only he can really pull off no matter how many others try it.
