This book is not just showing off their collection. This is the New York City’s nightlife (clubs, parties, and DJ’s) chronology of the most shiny golden era.
Recentyly I can’t feel anything for night clubbing because night club is not special place now.
DJs and party organizers can earn more money than 20 or more years ago because normal people come to clubs like normal live show.
There was more energy in night clubs before 2000 like Mark Ronson says “They had the very best DJs and the most beautiful array of people (models, rap stars, ballers, art kids, skaters, drug dealers, etc.).” in this book.
Now, night club is normal place for normal people and we can’t feel 80’s and 90’s passions anymore even though it is good for night club business.
