Since 1970 David Mancuso had been hosting weekly parties in his own home, first at 647 Broadway and later at 99 Prince Street. What eventually became known as The Loft has a unique position in the history of modern music and dance culture. With an intimate atmosphere typified by collective affinities and with the focus on music, The Loft had no commercial agenda — unlike the discotheques that, in time, filled New York with the high-glamour and celebrity factor. "Last Night" combines a cataloguing project with an immersive experience that emphasizes the feeling of the music, using a specially adapted hi-fi system, assembled to correspond to the high-level sound experience at The Loft.
