Amplifyd – an auction house for influential artists and music brands to sell their collections, unique collectables, and experiences, backed by the founding investor of Instagram, announces its official launch out of beta.
With groundbreaking early partnerships secured with electronic music pioneers including Danny Tenaglia, Sasha, and Felix Da Housecat, these iconic artists are set to auction their personal treasure troves, containing rare vinyl, acetates, white labels, memorabilia, and studio equipment, providing fans with a unique opportunity to own a piece of electronic music history with remarkable provenance.
“Being an electronic music artist myself over the past 15 years, it’s an incredibly exciting time for Amplifyd to partner with artists of Felix, Sasha, and Danny’s extraordinary talent and pedigree. Their contributions to the roots and infrastructure of the electronic music industry are monumental. Our collaboration promises a unique and unforgettable journey for fans and music enthusiasts.” – Dan Willis (Amplifyd Founder & CEO).
Danny Teneglia’s DJ and Production career has spanned close to 50 years now. Over that time, he’s accumulated a vast collection of records, production equipment, DJ gear, and memorabilia that hold so many dear memories close to his heart. View his collection here.
“It’s been an incredible journey to have all of this in my possession for decades, and I’ve been thinking for quite some time now that these items and records might be better served in the hands of others who will continue to love and appreciate them just as much as I have. I’m excited to auction most of my collection on the amazing “Amplifyd” platform. What would make me the most happy is if this massive record collection and various pieces of studio gear and DJ equipment can find a new loving home where they will continue to be appreciated and used.” – Danny Teneglia
Further solidifying a successful beta, Amplifyd partnered with the world’s leading electronic music festival and live events creator, Insomniac, earlier this year to host the sixth edition of the EDC Las Vegas Charity Auctions. The three-week auctions allowed fans to bid on 30+ once-in-a-lifetime experiences, with participating headline artists including Marshmello, Armin van Buuren, Yellow Claw, and Loud Luxury. The initiative raised over $100,000, making it one of the most successful EDC Las Vegas Charity Auctions.
