- Ground Zero - Where all modern underground disco and house starts. Imagine the vision to INVEST in the sound system and then open your loft apartment with a discerning but inclusive door policy for all night dancing while you select tunes for their sonic qualities rather than some label giving you product to plug. I salute you David and had the fortune to meet the man and replicate some of his sound with my own pair of Klipschorn corner horns. Brilliant compilation, important historical document and a must for any serious collector of the Disco genre. This is where it all begins.
- Yup. Was also getting round to pinching a fresh set recently as mines pretty beat- and boom, all gone. Now for the disrespectful price increases...
- . . . rest in peace david mancuso . . .
- Fantastic selections here, and the mastering is bang on, with the exception of SUN PALACE'S "Rude Movements" which appears to be a vinyl rip. (A bit of a disappointment there)
- Edited 18 years agoBoth Loft compilations (Vols 1 & 2) are essential pieces of Dance music history containing a wealth of amazing records spanning Disco, Soul, Funk, House, Dub, Disco Not Disco, Electronica, African Funk....They have exposed me to so many artists that I wouldn't have even contemplated or considered coming under the banner of Dance music. That's probably what was so amazing about clubs like The Loft and DJs such as David Mancuso, Larry Levan etc they played and broke great records regardless of their genre. They just had a philosophy of great music that you could dance to. They could drop music with guitars and get people dancing. There is too much pigeon-holing of music these days, going to a club just to check a DJ that plays one narrow style of music, no matter how great he/she is. There is so much fantastic music across the board that clubs should take a leaf out of the Loft's book and get back to basics playing great music regardless of the genre! RESPECT to David Mancuso, Larry Levan and all the DJs who followed in their footsteps.
