Hot Creations welcome Danny Tenaglia, as he delivers his first piece of solo produced music for more than a decade

Hot Creations welcome the legendary Danny Tenaglia, as he delivers his first piece of solo produced music for more than a decade. On remix duty is one of the greatest DJs to grace the electronic music scene, Carl Cox, alongside exceptional New Jersey house producer Harry Romero and Clarisse Records frontman Mendo.

“The inspiration for this track happened when I was asked by Richie Hawtin to fill in for him at Movement Festival in Detroit. I thought I’d go in my studio and create something special for this event but then I got lost in this old school NY vibe and I just kept flowing with it. I thought if I say Don’t Turn Your Back it would be a fun hook and not just an instrumental concept. The project has become more and more exciting as soon as Jamie and Hot Creations showed interest and then having remixes by three friends and major talents Carl Cox, Harry Romero and Mendo was just too good to be true. I am truly grateful for everyone involved as this has sparked a new flame in me with getting my ass back in the studio and knocking out a bunch of ideas that I have had up my sleeve for many years.” – Danny Tenaglia

Renowned as a mainstay in the house music scene due to his extensive back catalogue and iconic parties in Miami and Ibiza, ​Danny Tenaglia delivers a ​Paradise Mix of ​Don’t Turn Your Back ​ to start proceedings. A slice of tuff New York house, it’s the rustling hi-hats, infectious vocal and staggered percussion that gives this a typical Tenaglia feel. One of America’s finest producers ​Harry Romero is up next to remix. Fast-paced with a subtly changing groove, it’s the addition of a John Scarpulla’s saxophone solo that creates a fiesta feel. Working together again, Scarpulla is Diana Ross’ tour saxophonist who has featured in Harry’s previous tracks including​Mongobonix. Awesome Soundwave head honcho​ Carl Cox serves up the next remix: a dynamic, heritage sounding house cut with flecks of glitchy acid and whirling synths before his alternative ASW remix comes through with punchy kicks and more underlying acid tones. Prolific producer Mendo​ rounds off the release, adding bongo-like percussion to create a stellar remix.
