All the Disco Hits of the 70s Are Compiled In This Collection
Disco music was all the rage back in the 70s. The genre merged from the combination of several dance floor friendly musical styles, including funk, soul, pop, salsa and motown. During the mid 70s and early 80s, Disco became a true cultural phenomenon, attracting fans of different backgrounds with the steady four-on-the-floor beats, infectious syncopated bass sections, jangly melodies and the catchy vocal harmonies of many of the major songs of the genre. Groups such as the Bee Gees are often regarded as the absolute masters of the craft, while Donna Summer, Boney M, KC and The Sunshine Band or even Chic are often considered innovators who brought something more to the table. Niles Rodgers (who also played in Chic) was and still is an extremely revered music producer, and he is currently hailed as one of the main players behind the recent revival of funk and disco, particularly due to his work with Daft Punk on their acclaimed "Random Access Memories", which also features one of the most popular singles in recent times, "Get Lucky". The original disco wave is also experiencing a huge come back, as discotheque parties and 70s inspired dance night events are on the rise everywhere! Join the party and give the gift of rhythms and grooves!
