Larry Levan's Paradise Garage - The Legend Of Dance Music Part 3

    Following on from the previous two volumes of high quality disco heat dug from Salsoul's legendary back catalogue, we're treated to the third instalment of bona fide 'Larry List' classics which were favoured by the DJ on the dancefloor of his seminal, game changing NYC nightclub The Paradise Garage. High quality disco, boogie, funk and more is the order of the day here with prime-time hits flawlessly rubbing shoulders with underground cuts in a way that mirrors Levan's open mind and faultless ear for music. His elusive early 80s remix of Jimmy Castor's perennial B-boy / B-girl jam "It's Just Begun" sits comfortably alongside essential tracks like Skyy's club classic "Here's To You", Inner Life's anthemic "Moment Of My Life", Ripple's addictive "The Beat Goes On And On" and Orlando Riva Sounds trippy "Moonboots" among many others. This is an essential release for those who dig the disco sound and want to have all these incredible records in one place, or for newcomers who wish to explore the sounds and vibe of one of the greatest DJs of modern times and who want to get down to some of the tracks that have shaped modern day club culture. Remastered, repressed and re-released for 2015 in full conjunction with Salsoul Records New York City.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Matt says: First time back in stock since 2015 (!!). One of those catch-all compilations (on triple vinyl no less) that every disco lover (or music lover in general TBH) needs. Inflation proof - it's the same price it was in 2015!

    Following on from his stellar record store day 2017 double-pack, Dimitri is back with another clutch of indispensable disco edits from his impressive archive for the legendary Salsoul label. Any self-respecting DJ or Disco-lover will be brimming over with excitement upon looking at this impressive selection of tracks, all respectfully and lovingly tweaked by Disco-Dim. Salsoul Orchestra's "Ooh I Love It (Love Break)" kicks things off, a true blue classic, just gently touched in all the right places for extended pleasure. Cooing vocals, girl talk, infectious bass AND the "This is a journey into sound" chimes - what more could you possibly want. Next up is Skyy's total anthem "First Time Around", a classic Garage groover, previously flipped by Cosmo V and Spandex Ste. Dimitri dodges his predecessors' drugged up vibe and gets into dub mode, upping the ante with choice delays and cool loops! Essential stuff. On the flipside The Jammers' "Be Mine Tonight" is another massive Garage smasher, and here Dimitri almost edges Shep Pettibone's OG mix into the Boogie stratosphere. Hydraulic bass reverberated through your cranium, synths whir and buzz and cowbells ring on for days - this is a bona fide dancefloor destroyer! If all that weren't enough, this double-pack finishes is with one of Dim's most sought after reworks, "Just As Long As I Got You" by Love Committee. Beloved by both myself and Dave Walker, this deep, dark and emotional disco stomer has it all - searing guitar solos, screeching strings, big brass and a rhythm section to die for not to mention the most eyes-closed, head shaking, hands aloft heartbreak vocals you'll ever here. Meet me under the mirror ball y'all!
