LISTEN: Red Bull Music Academy NY’s Larry Levan Street Party
This past Sunday, the Red Bull Music Academy paid tribute to legendary DJ Larry Levan with a street party in New York City in an effort to support a local intiative to co-name a stretch of King Street as Larry Levan Way. Thousands gathered on the shut-down street section between Varick and Hudson—the original site of the famed Paradise Garage—for a day-long celebration featuring performances from Levan’s longtime associates François K, David DePino, and Joey Llanos.
For those not lucky enough to be there (or those who want to relive the party), Red Bull Music Academy Radio is streaming the full five-hour recording from the Larry Levan Street Party. Buckle in for an afternoon’s worth of disco and house and stream the mix below.
