World Connection “BEAT CITY”OPEN: 21:00
It’s been 25 years since we lost Larry Levan, a true pioneer that defined the post disco sound and paved the way to the early days of house music. We will be commemorating the legendary Paradise Garage resident on his birthday of July 20th with his close associates. We are honored to welcome Jellybean Benitez, a prominent producer who shot to stardom a string of talents like Paradise Garage regular Madonna. He is joined by Christine Wiltshire, a vocalist of seminal disco hit “Keep On Jumpin’.” Aptly making an exciting joint appearance are Tohru Takahashi and DJ Nori, both of whom were among the earliest Japanese who learnt Larry Levan’s spirit in the ’80s, when house music spread explosively in New York.
With a splendid array of seasoned veterans on board, their performances are guaranteed to lend this memorial night a timeless quality that strikes a chord not only with long-time devotees of the New York legend but with younger generations. Don’t miss out on an occasion that represents the soul of dance music, full of spine-tingling, emotive tracks.
