" It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."
House music is often held up as a kind of banner of cultural diversity owing to its origins in black and Latino discos, where it ﬁrst found its audience. One could point to the 1980s, when African American producers / DJs, like Frankie Knuckles, Marshall Jefferson or DJ Pierre, began refining the all night dance floor workouts at underground gay and mixed clubs in New York, New Jersey and Chicago, like the legendary Warehouse from which house music derives its name. Or there is DJ Larry Levan, whose residence at New York's Paradise Garage not only defined a distinct sub-genre of its own but set the tone for today's scene.
