"Get The Look" by New Paradise - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
New Paradise were known in the late 70's as Paradise Birds - in the 80's producer Leo Carrier gave them the title New Paradise. One of the best known singles is "Get The Look" from 1981.With the help of percolating synthesizers and stark and deep keyboard arrangements this tracks moves fast and furious with much attitude and energy.
I have taken the 1990 documentary film, "Paris Is Burning" directed by Jennie Livingston and blended these energies together and looked to create homage to the fabulous world of fashion and drag. The film centers on the "ball culture" of New York City and the African American, Latino and transgender community, which created and keeps the runway alive.
A mixture of both vogue and pose are the energy to bring the track by New Paradise alive once again!
