Lovely, heartwarming reaction to Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor by Ian Levine 😊 #doctorwho #ianlevine #chrischibnall #jodiewhittaker #13thdoctor

"I remember some amazing nights at #theSaint #NYC. The music would build all night long and hit its peak at about 3:30 am. Then it would drop its tempo into my favorite part of the entire evening. It was called #SleazeMusic" later they called it #MorningMusic but it was the Sleaze Music that rocked supreme.
.
People came from all over the world to go to #theSaintnyc to hear #TerrySherman, @warrengluck, #ShaunBuchanan (pictured), Mark Thomas play #SleazeMusic. This was the DJ's chance to do their own thing and shine. It was beyond description.
.
You left the next day at around 11:00 or noon with the music and mixing still swirling around in your head. It lasted for days.
.
My most memorable night was #ShaunBuchanan's 'Farewell' performance on February 23, 1985. He was diagnosed with #AIDS and knew that he was dying. He wanted to say a final goodbye to all of his fans before he returned home to the UK. For me he was a legend and while his mixing skills technically were not as good as some his music selections were astonishing and the best I have ever heard. In that regard he has no equal.
.
In fact, #IanLevine produced #ClosetoPerfection by #MiguelBrown especially for Shaun to play as Sleaze Music at #TheSaint. Another classic track he made famous at #TheSaint was #SoundofMyHeart by #SleepingLions.
.
The night of the party Shaun raffled off his turntables and as the night built he played the following combination:
.
(1) Magic Bird of Fire by #TheSalsoulOrchestra
(2) Remember Me by #DianaRoss
(3) No Regrets by #Martinique
(4) Love Is Everywhere by #AnthonyandRose
.
There was not a dry eye in the room, it was just too emotional and Shaun was a true champion and so very brave" - by Luvlatins

Brace yourselves, it’s time for #SeventhAvenue. #IanLevine’s brainchild, the all male group started life with the 1979 concept album “Midnight in Manhattan.” Over the years, the lineup changes were a constant but their sexy and homoerotic image became a blueprint for other U.K. acts to follow, like Take That and Boyzone. In 1985, the boys released the single “Love’s Gone Mad,” which became a mega seller, topping Record Mirror’s High Energy charts for a staggering twelve weeks. The band would later leave Ian’s label to sign with Jive, attempting to keep the “Seventh Avenue” name before Levine took them to court. Ultimately, they would become #BigFun, with several singles written and produced by #StockAitkenWaterman

Only found out today that the #Abzorbaloff is basically #IanLevine so this is very fitting. Allegedly.

Good luck getting any contact with anyone from the show ever again, Levine.

Even the BBC cleaning staff probably have you on a "psycho fans to beware" list.

From L.A. to Miami, #BarbaraPennington wants YOU: the #Chicago native started her career when #IanLevine came to the States in search of new talent. You know that her #ChakaKhan-like pipes got her the gig! Though she remained relatively unknown in the U.S., she was a megastar in Europe with club hits like “Twenty Four Hours a Day,” “Out of The Darkest Night” and this track, “All American Boy.”

Having established herself as one of Hi-NRG’s reigning queens with the anthem “So Many Men, So Little Time,” Miguel Brown kept the momentum with its followup “He’s A Saint, He’s A Sinner,” a bigger hit in the UK than its predecessor. The track’s producer, Ian Levine, desperately wanted to get the name of the Saint nightclub in New York into the title of a record, hence “He’s A Saint…” Miquel’s performance of the song on @channel4’s music show “The Tube” drew major controversy: as she was unable to dance around due to a recent stint at the hospital, some outrageous dancers were brought in. Naturally, the switchboards were jammed with complaints and Miquel herself had to justify the dancers' moves on a talk show.

American brother and sister duo James and Susan Wells flew to London in 1984 under the guidance of #IanLevine and @simoncowell - yes, that #SimonCowell - to record several tracks like “No Care For Me,” “Mirror Image” and “R.S.V.P.” With Levine’s help, all were successful in the gay clubs but none of them reached the charts. Still, it’s enough to take us to church - The Hi-NRG church, that is!

For our 50th post (wow, that was quick!) we want to look back at the record for which #HiNRG really owes its name: #EvelynThomas' 1984 global smash #HighEnergy, produced by #IanLevine. In a 2009 interview made by music journalist and historian #JustinKantor for Soulmusic.com, Evelyn said that even though the song gave her massive exposure and brought her to a faithful fanbase, its economic returns were less than satisfying. Also, she confessed that "High Energy" was one of a handful of songs that were offered already to other artists before her, like #BarbaraPennington and #LJJohnson. You can listen to Justin's full interview on his YouTube page "retrorhythms"

#IanLevine is not only the man responsible for such classics like #EvelynThomas' "High Energy" and #MiquelBrown's "So Many Men, So Little Time"; he was also musical director for London's mythical #Heaven disco and remixer of tracks by #Bananarama, #BronskiBeat and #PetShopBoys. In an interview with Music Technology Magazine in 1988, he assured that a good #hinrg record was very hard to define: "As long as it has a fairly fast rhythm - something between 120 and 140 beats per minute - it has the potential. But it's also the consistency of the beat, and what I call the concept of light and shade; to be exciting the record has to build up to peaks where everything is playing at once, and then drop down to areas where it's not, as if the floor had suddenly dropped away from under you." #somanymensolittletime #highenergy #gaydisco #lgbthistory #lgbt
