The man they call Mr Fingers. One of house music’s figureheads and spiritual mainstays. Can you feel it?
House music is made up of a rich, warehouse-laden saga spanning more than 30 years (arguably). Larry Heard was present for the seeding of that genre in the fertile music-soil of Chicago, and has written some of the most essential and emotional music ever to grace worldwide discotheques. As a 17-year old rocker, Larry played drums in the group Infinity. Fed up with the limitations of that instrument, he acquired a TR707 and Roland and recorded “Mystery Of Love” in 1984 as Mr. Fingers. His legendary “Can You Feel It” soon followed, along with worldwide notoriety, an MCA record deal, a deluge of releases on several imprints, and residencies across the world.
