Last Night a DJ Saved My Life was the first comprehensive history of the disc jockey, a figure who has become a powerful force shaping the music industry—and since its original publication, the book has become a classic. Now, with five new chapters and over a hundred pages of additional material, this updated and revised edition reasserts itself as the definitive account of DJ culture, from the first record played over airwaves to house, hip-hop, techno, and beyond.

From the first development of recorded and transmitted sound, DJs have shaped the record industry and the way we listen to music. Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton have tracked down the inside story on some of music’s most memorable moments. Focusing on the club DJ, the book gets first-hand accounts of the births of disco, hip-hop, house, and techno. Describing legendary clubs like the Peppermint Lounge, Cheetah, Arthur, Paradise Garage, the Loft, Sound Factory, the Warehouse, and Ministry of Sound, and using interviews with legendary DJs like Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles, Francis Grasso, Ron Hardy, David Mancuso, Nicky Siano, Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, Fatboy Slim, and the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Last Night a DJ Saved My Life is a lively and entertaining account of musical history and some of the most legendary parties of the century.
