Limited edition 3CD box set comes with exclusive bonus JUNIOR VASQUEZ voguing mix CD as well as set of unique collectible postcards by photographer Chantal Regnault. Also comes in limited edition super loud two volumes of double vinyl (Volume one of vinyl also contains free JUNIOR VASQUEZ mix CD).
The music on this 3CD/2 volumes of two volumes of 2xLP features tracks that were the soundtrack to voguing, the dance style that erupted in New York City between 1988–1995.
Voguing dancers choreographed poses from fashion magazines such as Vogue. Voguing first emerged around 1988 in the extraordinary ‘house ball’ community of Harlem, New York. Here African-American and Latino gay and transgender men competed against one another at ‘drag balls’ for the ‘realness’ of their drag, their ability to walk on a fashion runway like a model - and for their dancing skills – out of which came ‘voguing’.
As voguing entered into the mainstream, the ‘house ball’ scene came downtown mixing with the fashion crowd of Manhattan. With this shift, Voguing was first seen outside the ball scene at legendary dance clubs such as Larry Levan’s Paradise Garage and Junior Vasquez’s Sound Factory. Here the music evolved from the pertinent classic disco tracks of the 1970s into a harder house sound as artists such as Masters at Work, Armand Van Helden and Junior Vazquez.
The album comes with extensive sleevenotes by Tim Lawrence, author of ‘Love Saves the Day: A History of American dance music culture, 1970-79’ and ‘Hold on to your Dreams: Arthur Russell and the Downtown Music Scene, 1973-92’.
