Is this goodbye from Danny Tenaglia to the music business? As DJ Tennis goes to collect an Oberheim DMX after recent auction, rumours grow about what he plans for the future…

For better or for worse, this has been a life transforming year for Danny Tenaglia. The Brooklyn based DJ, producer, and musician faced a cancer scare, then subsequently made the decision to auction off a huge amount of the hardware he’d acquired over the years – with an auction of his vinyl due in the early weeks of 2024.

Those who made the winning bids for Tenaglia’s old equipment were given the opportunity to collect their items in person – and a few did choose to take the chance to meet Tenaglia for themselves. One of those was DJ Tennis, who took time away from his cooking web series to collect the Oberheim DMX that he got at the auction.

Here’s the two men posing in what’s actually part, ironically enough, of Danny Tenaglia’s kitchen…

But it turns out that he’s been selling things off for much longer than we first expected – Mansion Global reported back n 2018 on how he was selling his “modern, renovated apartment with panoramic views over Miami Beach and Biscayne Bay for $1.6 million”. Public records reveal Tenaglia paid $600,000 for the plush home in 2004, netting him a very tidy profit in the process.

So is this Tenaglia’s way of saying goodbye to the music business? An industry source who knows him insists not, saying “As far as I know, Danny isn’t planning on retiring. I just think this is his way of moving into the future. He hasn’t got rid of absolutely everything he owns, just the stuff that wasn’t being used anymore. The cancer business this year has really focused his mind on what’s important, and DJing and music production still fits into that.”

Oh, and in case you’d like to know, DJ Tennis paid $3500 for the Oberheim DMX…
