Love Honey, Love Heartache (12 Inch)

Man Friday

Ships early August.

Remember when you’d buy a record after hearing it at the Club? We miss that. With that in mind, We are proud to Introduce Get On Down Sound with the aim to bring back our favorite Dance 12 Inches to a new generation of Vinyl-DJs, and in the process celebrating the clubs, labels and mixers that gave us some of Dance music’s most influential cuts. Re-mastered for optimal club use, these official re-issues will be released on a monthly-basis.

Our first installment celebrates not only Larry Levan’s legacy but also that of Vinylmania. the seminal store set up by Charlie Grappone in the heart of Greenwich Village, Manhattan, just as the culture of 12-inch singles and promo copies was taking hold in the late 70s. From supplying Levan, Tony Humphries and many more with the latest imports to championing the emergence of house music in the mid-’80s, Grappone and his staff played a significant role in New York’s own dance music story. Through the ’90s and up until closing in 2007, Vinylmania was a store that catered to DJs from across the complex mixture of racial, social and sexual demographics that made up New York and its legendary nightlife.

No matter what list you look at. ‘Love Honey’ is always attached to Larry Levan’s tenure at the Paradise Garage. All the elements of a Garage Track are here; Dub Echoes, Synth Basslines, Percussions that linger, FX -that one can only dream of hearing on a Richard Long System- and an Organ, because after all, they say the Garage was like going to Church.
