I've published a feature in the Wire that reflects on David Mancuso's philosophy of musical hosting and the role of music within the house party. I hope it makes some useful points. Titled "It’s David Mancuso’s party – dance how you want to", you can access it here (online)
I should also mention that Lucky Cloud Sound System, which started to stage Loft-style parties with David back in 2003, will be holding a ceremony to celebrate David's life 7-10pm on Saturday 3 December at the Rose Lipman Community Centre, 43 De Beauvoir Rd, London N1 5SQ. The event is open to all, free entrance, light food provided, BYOB/BYOT. Details to follow.
Love saves the day,
