Staying home and complaining about rubbish TV it is, then! Danny Tenaglia cancels his Christmas Day gig at New York’s Hard & Soul – and more will depressingly join in the coming days too…

Danny Tenaglia is doing Hard & Soul night in New York – but with it being on Christmas Day, what’s wrong with just staying home and complaining about the rubbish on TV?

Danny Tenaglia isn’t happy at “scam artist of the year” Mike Vale covering his 1998 track “Music Is The Answer” – but is there something the New York DJ has forgotten?

Right now, Danny Tenaglia is not a happy bunny. He's just discovered - some two years after it happened - that someone called Mike Vale did a version of his song with Celada "Music Is The Answer (Dancin' & Prancin')". And he's horrified by how appallingly poor it really is.…

How do we make electronic music a safe space, asks the Musicians Union? Well, speaking out against the likes of Derrick May and Erick Morillo would be a good start…
