Larry Levan (born Lawrence Philpot, July 20, 1954 – died November 8, 1992) was a DJ who spun discs at the New York City night club Paradise Garage. The club has been described as the prototype of the modern dance club, because it was entirely focused on dancing, and was the first to put the DJ at the center of attention. He developed a cult following, who referred to his sets as “Saturday Mass”. Influential US DJ François Kevorkian credits Levan with introducing the dub aesthetic into dance music.
HUGE HUGE HUGE props to DJ Neoteric for his UNCANNY ability to find this hot track. I was looking for this song for a HOT minute after Jason Bentley played it on KCRW here in LA. A month later he hooked me up. THANK YOU!
Love this song.
