Armand Van Helden
New York: A Mix Odyssey
On his latest release New York: A Mix Odyssey, native DJ Armand Van Helden guides us through an aural road map of late night NYC. With a soundtrack like this, it’s no wonder the city never sleeps. Highlighted by groups such as Blondie (“Call Me”), Ram Jam (“Black Betty”) and Yazoo (“Don’t Go”) and capped off by Yes’s very apt “Owner of a Lonely Heart,” Van Helden knows the exact pulse that keeps NYC going well into the wee hours.
