Soul Jazz Records Presents: Voguing Volume Two on Import 2LP

Voguing and the House Ballroom Scene of New York City 1976-1996!

The music on this two volume compilation 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.
