Editors’ Notes

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.

Influenced by David Mancuso's seminal Loft parties, which presaged disco by more than five years, Levan took his cue and transferred those communal vibes to clubland with one of the most famed night spots ever, the Paradise Garage. For more than ten years, Levan's garage style was a wildly eclectic mix including any tracks...
