#1 Maestro (2005)

This documentary focuses on the origins of the New York City dance music underground. The film takes you deep in to the world of Larry Levan’s Paradise Garage and David Mancuso‘s Loft as they become the center of underground culture, which evolved into the dance music of today. Features appearances by Levan, Mancuso, Frankie Knuckles, Nicky Sciano, Francois K, Francis Grasso, Jellybean Benitez, Danny Tenaglia, Tony Humphries, Tee Scott, Dimitri From Paris, Danny Krivit, Pete Tong, Joe Claussell, Little Louie Vega, Keith Haring, and many of the original Loft and Garage club members.

Revisit–or see for the first time–the real New York disco era, with this documentary look at the underground celebrities that made it happen. The club scene in the ’70s was one of uninhibited artistic freedom, a percolating hotbed of new talent, new music, new styles, and new ways of thinking, and its story unfolds here in archive footage and interviews with key people on the scene. These include Larry Levan, house DJ at the Paradise Garage whose influence is felt to this day, and who at the time helped make the Garage the center of New York nightlife–young, black, gay nightlife in particular. Then there’s Danny Mancuso, an orphan who moved to New York as a teenager and single-handedly changed the face of the scene with his Loft parties. Other personalities featured include the “Godfather of House,” Frankie Knuckles; DJ and producer extraordinaire John “Jellybean” Benitez; pop artist Keith Haring; and many others. The influential disco era shown here is palpably something that was utterly exciting, original, and inspirational.
