Designed as an accompaniment to Tim Lawrence’s brilliant 2017 book of the same name, “Life and Death on the New York Dancefloor” offers a snapshot of one of the most significant periods in the history of NYC dance music. It focuses on a four-year period between 1980 and ’83, when the city’s various musical scenes mixed and mutated at a dizzying rate. Lawrence’s selections are spot on, with mutant disco classics by the likes of Dinosaur L, David Byrne and Material being joined by Latino electro-funk (Johnny Dynell, Mark Kamins remixing Manchester band Quando Quango), early hip-hop (Rammellzee Vs K-Rob), new wave (Tuxedomoon, Alan Vega), post-punk rock (3 Teens Kill 4), proto-house (Larry Levan side project Peech Boys) and dub disco (August Darnell remixing James White & The Blacks).
