Tune In: Sounds By The Original Mudd Club DJs
From 1978 to 1983, the Mudd Club pushed the limits of New York nightlife, championing the avant-garde, the erotic, the new-wave. It was a place of boundless expression and uncut debauchery—bolstered by a soundtrack as diverse as the coterie of artists, punks, fashion designers, and A-list musicians who frequented.
In keeping the spirit alive, we asked three of the original Mudd Club spinners and legends in their own right—Justin Strauss, David Azarch, and Johnny Dynell—to curate a playlist exclusively for GrandLife. From funk to soul to punk and other curiosities—this tracklist is a taste of what you can expect to hear at Richard Boch’s revamped Mudd Club party at the Soho Grand where Strauss, Azarch, and Dynell will be keeping the dance floor moving all night long.
