DJ Larry Levan ruled New York’s Paradise Garage in the ’80s with a musically omnivorous playlist that helped define and expand the era’s club sound. Over two and a half hours, Journey Into Paradise recaps his legacy. Smartly sequenced, it groups tracks sonically, moving from lush disco mainstays (Change’s “Paradise”) to sparse, percussive workouts (Tanaa Gardner’s “Heartbeat”, David Joseph’s “You Can’t Hide (Your Love From Me)”), from bubbling epics (Inner Life’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough") to New Wave classics (Talking Heads, Yaz). Nine tracks—from Janice McClain to Peech Boys in the first half; Lace, Inner Life and Gwen Guthrie in the second—are heard in Levan’s own remixes. The thrill of great dance music in a moment when its rules were changing is all over this set: Journey is a history lesson with a massive groove.
Great stuff from the Legend that is Larry ... i wish id have seen him life
a good set of tunes here worth every penny!
Two words... Ahhhh-mazing!
If you love late 70s early 80s soulful disco but hate the predictable compilations then you have to download this. I literally LOVE this! Very studio 54, cool songs that are both familiar and still fresh sounding. Each track will have you sighing!
