    Combat Jack (Reggie Ossé) says: If you know me, you know I’m a Paradise Garage head, and if you really know New York City, you’ll know that the Paradise Garage was the GOAT New York night club.

    Maestro Larry Levan spun magic weekly and house music has never been the same. For years I’ve searched for a classic sounding Paradise Garage mixtape circa 1985 – 1987, arguably the club’s best years before it closed its doors in 1987. Frustrated, I settled for never getting my hands on such a tape.

    A few weeks ago, friend and Internets colleague Francis Chiser asked me if I’d be down to curate a Garage tape that would capture the magic of the club’s ’85 – ’87 heyday. Jumping in, I wanted to make sure we featured music that I personally heard Larry play as he slayed. Francis and I vetted through hundreds of songs that got touched by Larry.

    Weeks later, we proudly present to you ‘PG – 14, A Tribute To Larry Levan Circa ’85 – 87′. Listen to this as a 3-hour time capsule reflecting a very special time in my life and in New York underground culture.
