1980s New York was where modern dance music took its first steps; a phoenix rising out of the ashes of disco's over-exposure and demise. The underground scene was the very opposite of the celebrity-sprinkled commercialism of Studio 54 - "Lofts & Garages" looks at how the Spring label, with its brand new 1980s subsidiary Posse, reacted to the new movement. Label mainstays Fatback were always searching for a new groove and kept an eye on the floor. Their final single for the label, 'Spread Love', was remixed by Morales and Munzibai. Fatback's Bill Curtis and Gerry Thomas also produced the sought-after boogie single 'Get Up An' Dance (Dance With Me)' for Mynk. Others featured include one of the most distinctive voices in dance music, Fonda Rae, with her single 'Live It Up', released here in its rare radio edit; veteran soul man Lonnie Youngblood with his gospel-influenced 'Sing A Song'; Detroit dance pioneers C-Brand's 'Wired For Sound' and Body's 'Have Your Cake', which has an early mixing credit for dance music legend Timmy Regisford. These records may not have all worked on the floor of the Paradise Garage, but they were part of the energy that was given off by that and the rest of New York's vibrant post-disco era.
