The party, which takes place at The Admiral on Sat 5th November, forms part of Stonewall Season – a festival of events celebrating lesbian, gay, bi and trans culture, as well as raising awareness and funds for Stonewall’s vital work of creating a world where everyone can be accepted without exception.
Melting Pot residents Andrew Pirie and Simon Cordiner will play tracks from the Top 100 Paradise Garage list featured in Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton’s Last Night a DJ Saved My Life book, and will also throw in some other Levan productions and tracks that never made it onto the list.
New York’s Paradise Garage is considered one of the most influential clubs of all time, where thousands of clubbers would dance week in week out from 1977 to its close in 1987. Resident Larry Levan played for hours on end, single handily breaking new records, with legions of fans and radio DJs taking cues from his sets. The Garage was also a test bed for his production skills, where records would be tweaked from week to week to ensure maximum dancefloor impact.
Melting Pot’s tribute to The Paradise Garage takes place on Saturday 5th November. Advance tickets are available from Resident Advisor priced at £8 (excl fees), while you can also pay on the door for £10.
