Tony Humphries, Master Mixer

New York-Le Bain
Fresh from his new Mastermix for Gerd Janson's label Running Back, the legendary DJ returns to Le Bain on Saturday, September 23rd, for a night of dance music perfection. Enjoy 2 classic mixes by the master while you wait.
"Just like Larry Levan was Paradise Garage, Tony Humphries was Club Zanzibar. With his inimitable take on house and garage, the American DJ was able to command audiences for hours, taking them up and down, round and round with a dizzyingly eclectic mix of soul, tribal, and gospel styles." (Dekmantel)
"I have an unhealthy obsession with Tony," said Gerd Janson. "I think it started when I began looking at the credits when I was first buying 12-inches. On American house records, when it comes to the thank-you copy, I think he is the second-most mentioned name after God. Like, 'I'd like to thank God and Tony Humphries.'"
