"Tim Lawrence follows his now classic Love Saves The Day with a magnificent account of one of the most fertile and influential periods of NYC's long musical history. A must-read for anyone curious how modern dance music got to where it is." FRANCOIS KERVORKIAN

"As the 1970s gave way to the 80s, New York's party scene entered a ferociously inventive period characterized by its creativity, intensity, and hybridity. Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor chronicles this tumultuous time, charting the sonic and social eruptions that took place in the city's subterranean party venues as well as the way they cultivated breakthrough movements in art, performance, video, and film."
