Various Artists Mutant Disco 3
- Words: Ben Bush
- Label: Ze
The recently revived Ze Records delivers this document of the origins of garage music. Was (Not Was) remixes Bush Sr.‘s back-pedaling sound bytes against a prototypical vibraphone groove while Coati Mundi offers exuberant Latin disco. The compilation is in part a love letter to The Paradise Garage, the legendary early ‘80s New York dance club, and its resident DJ Larry Levan, who birthed the genre out of his eclectic taste in dance music. One is tempted to find an allegory of Levan‘s illustrious but brief and troubled life in his remix of "There‘s Something Wrong in Paradise."
