Larry Heard

Many things have been circulating about Larry Heard - the man who we owe the meaning of "deep" in house music. He is responsible for numerous classics and deserves due credit from music lovers all around the world. Doing his "research," as Larry puts it, he met soul mates like Robert Owens, with whom he gave birth to Fingers Inc.. Larry, a self-proclaimed late bloomer, has stayed a decent, soulful and still productive mastermind amidst the turbulent history of house. In this talk at the 2005 RBMA in Seattle, the legend himself talks about his history, how he changed his drums for machines, and how he listened to the radio and finally got into the club circuit of the house scene in Chicago of the mid-'80s.
