Description

FOREWORD BY JAMES MURPHY

‘Literally changed the course of my life’ James Murphy

When someone says, ‘You have to know your history…’ this is it. A pop culture classic for over two decades, now fully refreshed and updated as part of White Rabbit’s Deep Cuts series, Last Night a DJ … is the whole unruly story of dance music in one volume. It recreates the dancefloors that made history, conjuring their atmosphere with loving detail and bringing you the voices of the DJs and clubbers at their heart – from grime, garage, house, hip hop and disco, to techno, soul, reggae, rock’n’roll, and EDM. Whether musical outlaw, obsessive crate-digger or overpaid superstar, the DJ has been at the spinning centre of nightlife for a century, making parties wilder, pushing clubbers harder, and driving music into completely new shapes and styles.

‘The chapter on Larry Levan alone transformed me into wanting to be your favoUrite DJ’ Questlove

‘We can’t tell the story of dance music without speaking the names of Sharon White and Judy Weinstein, so I welcome this vital update’ The Blessed Madonna
