Sorry on the delay, but here are some classic tunes for the weekend from Junkie XL, Danny Tenaglia, and Ferry Corsten.
Tom Holkenborg also known as Junkie XL (Xpanding Limits) is a Dutch electronic music artist that has been making songs that have been heard around the world. He joined the Dutch New Wave group called Weekend at Waikiki as an instrumentalist in 1993 and has released music under Junkie XL since 1998. He has freelanced and produced for rock bands, TV shows and commercials, video games (FIFA, Need For Speed, Grand Turismo), and movies . As far as being a typical “DJ” that you see at festivals, Junkie XL is the guy that is and has been the reason for electronic music becoming part of mainstream music. Junkie XL doesn’t quite produce dance music for a club setting, it’s definitely a lot more of a chill-out listening.

Danny Tenaglia is an American electronic dance music legend, he has been a resident as early as 1985 at Cheers Nightclub in Miami. His extensive knowledge of house music from his time living in New York gave him a quality few DJs had…the ability to spread music when the scene was still very underground. Soon after, he returned to New York and improved his producing skills. He picked up a residency at a small club in New York, but eventually he longed for a different experience so he opened up his own club at a small venue that couldn’t sell liquor. Because it was such a low-maintenance place he had no strings attached and was able to play whatever music he wanted, whenever he wanted. By 2000, there were enough fans of the electronic dance music scene and club owners finally had enough money to cater to them. With the opening of Space in Miami and his shows at Winter Music Conference, Danny Tenaglia finally had the international success he deserves.
