Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor, 1980-1983

Artist/Author: Tim Lawrence | Reference: P3252 | ISBN: 978-0822362029 | Type: Publication

Interviewing DJs, party hosts, producers, musicians, artists, and dancers, Lawrence illustrates how the relatively discrete post-disco, post-punk, and hip hop scenes became marked by their level of plurality, interaction, and convergence. He also explains how the shifting urban landscape of New York supported the cultural renaissance before gentrification.
