tribute to the loft

The Loft was the location for the first underground dance party (called “Love Saves The Day”) organised by David Mancuso on feb 14th 1970 in New York City. It’s legendary club where the roots of dance music took hold. This rare Wez G tribute DJ mix explores the Loft’s music and delivers disco beats interspersed with dub, reggae and early house.
