Us tribal house DJ/producer Danny Tenaglia today announced his 'resignation' from the world of DJing.

In a post on his Facebook page, the former pioneer of the NY garage scene, announced, “It's time for ME to Stop and settle down.”

The 51 year-old Tenaglia was a superstar DJ of the mid-late '90s club scene with hits like Bottom Heavy and Elements.

But in the post he claims to be struggling financially and in the need of a career re-think: “I know many people think I am wealthy but I assure you I am not! I have lived well and have very nice things to show for my earnings, but I cannot stop working!!

“I just need to STOP and smell the roses of my life and simply try to 'Grow Up and BE who I really am'.”

Tenaglia goes on to say that he can no longer afford his loft in New York and will settle in Miami.

Always a popular drawcard during the Ibiza party season, Tenaglia reports he has cancelled all future gigs except for one final set at Pacha on April 28.

Tenaglia adds that the resignation came about after taking ill on an international flight and losing personal belongings, prompting him to take stock of his jet-setting lifestyle.

He also promises to pen a journal and re-iterates, “As of this day, I am 'resigning' (not retiring).”

Tenaglia's 1998 Tourism album is considered one of the house music scene's studio masterpieces and and included his cover of Front 242's Headhunter which was a massive club anthem for Tenaglia in Australia.
