David Mancuso's private "loft" parties during the 1970s in New York City were legendary for their mix of great music and a vibrant disco scene. Mancuso had an unusual style of playing records. He was known for leaving space between each track, playing them fully from beginning to end with no adjustments. He had a reverence for music, especially good, new music and his DJ style told the stories from the songs. He used each song to create a profound musical narrative to generate and reflect a changing mood.
