welcome back to the city. It has been a great time off catching up with family. Great to know that they were ok for the most part. So here is to an exciting rest of year with the one and only Chaka Khan's "Some Love". A true classic! Enjoy

Here is a new remix of Sandee's house classic "Notice Me". This song in it's original state is flawless and it's one of those songs that should be appreciated for it's purity and beauty. If you have ever experience this on a big the dance floor space consider yourself lucky! This treatment is very subversive, almost dub style but not quite. Enjoy!
and here is the "Shhhhhh....Suite" which is pretty much a continuation but on another plateau focusing on the brilliant Miles Davis! Enjoy

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!
