The Video Vault #5

The Legendary West End Records, founded in 1976 produced some of the most memorable hits from the 70's and 80's. Francis Legge has been making a Documentary to honour Mel CHeren and all the work he has put into the music industry and the world of nightlife. The movie will be coming out later this year so look out for it! But for now - check out this teaser - talk about an education!

Thanks a lot for the clip!

It's funny to hear the part where Larry Levan was breaking in "Hearbeat" and people were first saying that it was too slow and that "no one wants to hear a record less than 120 bpm!" Today it would totally be the opposite where rap dominates the charts and anything faster than a human heartbeat would be looked on with suspicion.
