Larry Levan is a true legend and inspiration in the DJ and club culture. Levan took his residency at one of the most famed nightspots ever, The Paradise Garage, and set the tone for New York disco in the 1970s and the garage axis of house music during the ’80s.
One thing united records on Levan’s decks: ‘soul’, and although the video above is only one minute long, it captures the atmosphere & devotion of the Garage perfectly. Most definitely makes me wish I was there.
The track he spins is one by Sylvester, taken from the 1980 album ‘Mighty Real’. Play it loud.
