The term underground dance music (short version in music jargon: UDM) has been applied to artistic movements, such as the house music movement of the late 1970s, but the term has since then come to be defined by any house music artist/band that avoids becoming a trend/mainstream nowadays. Other early "underground dance music" artists include Little Louie Vega, Tony Humphries, Larry Levan, David Mancuso, Frankie Knuckles, Nicky Siano, Lenties Deep and many others. In the late 1970s, the term underground dance music was associated with the music initially played at places like Paradise Garage, The Loft and The Warehouse.
