Check Out a Playlist of the Top 100 Paradise Garage Tracks
- Words: Derek Opperman
Yesterday, Red Bull Music Academy published Peter Shapiro's Saturday Mass: Larry Levan and the Paradise Garage, a revealing character study of influential New York post-disco DJ Larry Levan. As an addendum, RBMA has shared a YouTube playlist of the "Top 100" tracks from Paradise Garage, the legendary club where Levan held a decade-long residency.
The comprehensive playlist's selections showcase the eclecticism of Levan's mixing palette, with sweetly soulful disco cuts like Diana Ross' "No One Gets the Prize" sitting comfortably next to David Byrne and Brian Eno's bizarro sample experiment, "The Jezebel Spirit." The full chart is available to stream below or on RBMA's YouTube page.
