In Focus: Larry Heard

Chicago, 30.06.23

Focus on Larry Heard

Who else sounds like Larry Heard? In the late 1980s, The Chicago house producer was one of the first artists – initially as a part of Fingers, Inc., and then as a solo act – to truly stamp their own unique aesthetic onto the nascent style of electronic dance music. Favouring lush instrumentation, foggy chords and dreamy melodies over the more mechanic pounding of many of his counterparts, he inspired the "deeper" sounds of the midwest's second wave, and generations of young clubbers elsewhere around the world.

This In Focus features close to 3 hours of untouchable deep house beauty from Larry Heard - compiled, mixed and edited by Giles Smith.
