Radio / Tour: Legends Of The Dancefloor: A Piece Of Paradise / A Tribute To Larry Levan European Tour 2011

July 17, 2011

Here’s a quick heads up to check out the various events in honour of Larry Levan happening at the moment. First up are two programs on Radio 1 / Radio 6 dedicated to Larry Levan. The documentary ‘Legends Of The Dancefloor – A Piece Of Paradise’ finds many US & UK’s artists and DJs who were in one way or another connected to Larry Levan, including David Depino, Michael Linder, Vince Aletti, Manny Lehman, Michael De Benedictus of the Peech Boys, Nicky Siano, DJ Harvey & Heidi Lawden, Paul Oakenfold, Judy Weinstein, Justin Berkmann, John Morales, Tom Moulton, Taana Gardner & Victor Rosado. There’s also a four hour recording originally aired on WBLS during the second anniversary of the Paradise Garage with commentary by iconic radio DJ Frankie Crocker, the ‘Chief Rocker’. This 1979 recording with Levan in the mix, plus live shows by Loleatta Holloway, Dan Hartman & Sylvester sounds pretty special. More information here.

Secondly there is a tour with Victor Rosado (who was schooled by Levan) & Lenny Fontana with warm up from DJ Alex & Johnny Chingas. Rosado was one of the few DJs that played at the Garage so expect the Garage aesthetic.

Tour dates at present…

23rd July in Dublin @ Crawdaddy
28th July in Oslo @ Jaeger
30th July in London @ Fabric
4th Aug in Berlin @ Cookies
6th Aug in Manchester @ Soup Kitchen
