Tuned In To Music

Reflections from a lifetime

Podcast: Tuned In To Music 012 – Larry Levan (Part 2)

Larry Levan, the superstar DJ at the Paradise Garage, had a fine ear for music and an exceptional ability to put together music in the club that sent his dancers into orbit.  After conquering the dance floor, he brought his live deejaying skills into the studio and became one of the most successful dance remixers of the late 1970s and early 1980s.  This is our second podcast featuring the extended remixes that Levan created for the Paradise Garage.

  2. […] “Larry Levan’s Paradise Garage” is a collection of Levan’s remixes put together by Francois Kevorkian.  Kevorkian was a French drummer, DJ and remixer who DJed at one time or another during the 1970s and ’80s at the Loft, The Paradise Garage, Studio 54, and Better Days along with many other clubs in Manhattan along with being the Friday night DJ at Club Zanzibar in Newark for a year.  He was a central player in the underground dance world of the time and has all the chops one would need to put together a collection of Levan remixes.  Don’t be put off by the garish cover which looks like something you’d find on a “Paaaaaarty Time!  Disco Dance Explosion!!!”  CD you’d find in the cutout bin at the Dollar Store.  “Larry Levan’s Paradise Garage” is a very good collection of Levan’s remixes.  It leads off with Instant Funk’s “I Got My Mind Made Up” which was one of the first remixes Levan did and which was such a huge smash in the clubs that it pretty much opened the door to the recording studio for him.  It also includes Levan’s famous remixes of Loleatta Holloway’s “The Greatest Performance of My Life”, First Choice’s “Double Cross” and the almost 13 minute “Make It Last Forever” by Inner Life featuring Jocelyn Brown.  Remastered in a 20 bit recording, the sound quality is good.  The only problem with the CD is that you wish it were longer.  A two CD set would have been nice.  Music from this CD can be heard on Tuned In To Music Podcast 002 – The Paradise Garage (Part 2) Larry Levan and Tuned In To Music Podcast 012 – Larry Levan (Part 2) […]
