Maestro: Larry Levan & early DJ culture pt 1/9
(Uploaded by Caligulalia)
Having been engrossed in the must read Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, since picking it up a few weeks back...
The documentary above entitled Maestro (released in 2003) is a great, insightful, rare, thorough look at the origins of DJ/Dance/Club culture.
Arguably, it may be the visual equivalent to the last few chapters i've devoured in Bill Brewster's and Frank Broughton's unsurpassed written look back at the characters, genres and innovations that have taken place / formed over (what was in 2006) 100 years of the artform of DJing.
