In 2012, DJ Danny Tenaglia faced an uncertain future in music after writing a Facebook post that he was "resigning": "I HAVE SEEN THE MOUNTAINTOP as a DJ and I just need to STOP and smell the roses of my life." More than a year later, Tenaglia's DJ career is still thriving, and he has released a new compilation, DJ Mix for Electric Zoo.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
