Liebling of the Day
Our favourite book on DJ culture

“Last night a DJ saved my life” by Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton

Our LIEBLING OF THE DAY is this fantastic book about the whole unruly story of dance music. It recreates the dancefloors that made history, conjuring their atmosphere with loving detail and bringing you the voices of the DJs and clubbers at their heart.

From grime, garage, house, hip hop and disco, to techno, soul, reggae, rock’n’roll, and EDM. In 1999 this was the first book to do justice to the DJ’s rollercoaster ride. Twenty years later, it’s fully refreshed, carefully updated and filled with even more stories, including two brand new chapters.

‘The chapter on Larry Levan alone transformed me into wanting to be your favorite DJ’ Questlove


‘The original and still the best’ Gilles Peterson

‘We can’t tell the story of dance music without speaking the names of Sharon White and Judy Weinstein, so I welcome this vital update’ The Blessed Madonna


‘Literally changed the course of my life’ James Murphy
