West End Records is an American music record label based in New York

City. Led by co-founder Mel Cheren, West End was one of the most

prominent labels in dance music\'s history, along with Prelude Records,

Salsoul Records, and Casablanca Records. West End Records helped

introduce the 12-inch single, the vinyl format popularized by disco

music in the 1970s and promoted the nascent garage house music

pioneered by DJ Larry Levan in Paradise Garage.

It was founded by Mel Cheren and Ed Kushins in 1976 and the label went

on to define the sound of New York City in the heyday of disco. That

sound eventually filtered to dance floors and clubs across the country

and around the world. During the disco era, many labels and artists

scrambled to put out records that would ride the wave of disco\'s

popularity but West End was not jumping on any bandwagon. West End

created the bandwagon, releasing hits like Taana Gardner\'s

\"Heartbeat,\" Karen Young\'s \"Hot Shot,\" Loose Joints\' \"Is It All Over

My Face,\" Barbara Mason\'s \"Another Man,\" and The NYC Peech Boys\'

\"Don\'t Make Me Wait,\" creating a frenzy on dance floors. These titles,

along with many others in the West End Records catalog, went on to

become some of the most sampled songs in music history.
