Habituate

distinguishable dance music only!


A highly under appreciated moment in night life is the walk to the venue. It’s where one has a chance to reflect alone, with a date/lover, or with a few intimate friends. It’s where the character of a party is developed; the surrounding neighborhood says a lot about a perspective night out. A city at sleep, an industrious work horse at rest, or a desolate back alley in darkness brings out the creeper. The creeper is the social context of a night of dancing. Are the party goers marginalized subcategories in need of release or are they status-quo in decay? Are they youth in search of absurdity or are they veterans of a scene guarding the gates to their paradise? Perhaps they are over stimulated youngsters who gained access to a hyper specific identity through the internet, there to spectate but hardly participate. Whatever it may be, when you walk the night, it’s always something to remember.

Have a listen to the original 1979 version by the Skatt Brothers and the 2012 remake by The Phenomenal Handclap Band. Also included is a mix by Frankie Knuckles that opens with “Walk the Night,” at none other but the birth place of house music, The Warehouse.
