Balance, the acclaimed Australian mix CD series with one of the best reps in the game, has enticed US house/techno legend Danny Tenaglia to mix their latest release 'Balance 025'. It's the DJ's first mix CD release in six years.
“When I was asked to do this for Balance, I did some research and felt a connection,” Tenaglia said. “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.”
Radio Slave, Danny Howells, Funk D'Void, Deetron, Agoria, Joris Voorn and Lee Burridge are among the DJs to have mixed a Balance CD in the past few years. Balance don't churn them out like some other compilation series — as Tenaglia notes, they're about quality, not quantity.
The two-CD mix takes a technoid path, a sound Tenaglia has been playing a lot more of in recent years. The DJ legend, now playing with Traktor, has re-edited many of the tracks he's included on his mix — to be released in September. The tracklisting is as follows:
