The evolution of dance music as experienced by Brooklynite Frank Ramos. While spinning a diverse collection of music (much of which has never been heard on the radio before), Frank shares his personal insight, which spans over 40 years: the various styles of dance music, the important DJs and clubs, the social, cultural, historical and beyond- all as it occurred in New York City.
At a young age, Frank Ramos was introduced to music through radio and live TV performances by R&B, Latin and rock artists. By the age of 14, he was buying records, by 17 he was going to clubs and concerts, and all the while he was expanding his musical tastes: jazz, funk, classical, film scores, reggae, Afro-pop, house, hip-hop and more. He also has amassed an equally diverse collection of music related books and magazines, which, coupled with his personal experiences, have contributed to his vast knowledge of music.

Arca is one of those artists that is not for everyone. Most simply will not get his music. Sometimes we have to re-learn how to listen to music. I for one think he's brilliant. Check out his self-titled album of 2017. He's already in another place.

if you are familair with Aaron Copland's score for "On The Town" than I recommend this score by Waxman, One of his best. If you like it, check out his score for "The Bride Of Frankenstein". Different but no less brilliant; ... See full review

Well I for one appreciate her ability to push herself. It doesn't always have to work, when experimenting that's part of the result sometimes. There's next time to try and get it right if wanted. With that said this is a really good album. The influence ... See full review

I think that after a few hearings the album begins to reveal it's subtle beauty and the musical mind of Bartos. As one person commented, the album should be heard in context (when the tracks were recorded). Also I don't think comparison to material by ... See full review
