The Voice of Larry Heard


It’s becoming an enjoyable habit for us to share a few words with the guests who we invite to come play with us at Mister Saturday Night, and for our next very special guest we have a special format for the typically text-based interview.

Not only is Larry Heard a musical pioneer, a man who crafted arguably the most original and timeless sounds from the golden age of Chicago house, but he is also one of the most gentle and gracious men we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. So it was with great excitement when we learned that he decided to forgo email in preference to a recording of his own voice to answer our questions.

Have a listen right here..
