Disco TV: Rare Larry Levan 1989 video interview



A rare video interview from Larry Levan has recently emerged on YouTube from  what appears from Japan. This is incredible since there is very little footage out there of the man himself adding to his mystique. The video is sort of a  NYC documentary log/time capsule at capturing the dawn of the '80s dance music. The video starts at the now defunct East Village's  Dance Tracks which was one of the last go to places for dance music. I was lucky to go there and catch some great Loft Classic repress on vinyl that now feel like a treasure.  Then on to Vinyl Mania which was the shrine record store for dance music. Then the footage goes to the famous Choice parties where Levan was doing his magic and then clocking at the 41:47 minute mark we get to experience a 10 minute interview with the man himself.  It's quite a treat to hear the man discuss the current state of clubs at the time, house music, sound systems and gives some amazing advice to new club dj's.   Enjoy!

S-Express: Mantra For A State Of Mind


Happy Sunday! Here is an amazing overlooked tuned by British Acid House crooners S'Express that needs to be re-evaluated and give it its deserved praise. This song pretty much sums up the Acid House movement from London. Enjoy!
