VA David Mancuso Presents The Loft Volume 1 1999

VA David Mancuso Presents The Loft Volume 1 1999

The Loft is a series of compilation albums curated by David Mancuso, the legendary DJ and founder of the underground New York City club of the same name. The Loft was one of the first venues to play dance music in the 1970s and 1980s, and influenced the development of genres such as disco, house, and techno. The Loft compilations feature some of the tracks that Mancuso played at his parties, spanning various styles and eras of music.

The first volume of The Loft was released in 1999 by Nuphonic, a UK-based label that specialized in dance music. It contains 18 tracks on two CDs, divided into "Early" and "Late" sections. The tracks range from soulful disco classics like Risco Connection's "Ain't No Stopping Us Now (Version)" and Loose Joints' "Is It All Over My Face (Unreleased Original Full Length Version)" to experimental electronic gems like Fingers Inc.'s "Mystery Of Love (Instrumental)" and Sun Palace's "Rude Movements". The compilation also includes some rare and obscure tracks that Mancuso discovered and introduced to his audience, such as Résonance's "Yellow Train" and Karma's "High Priestess".
