I would describe “Nyuli” by Mim Suleiman as Swahili Nu-Disco / Word House, clearly distinct from the Deep House popular in South Africa.
Ever the producer’s producer, Todd Terje released a teaser single a week ago for his forthcoming LP, It’s Album Time (due out April 8).
“Love You Inside Out” is terribly, wonderfully disco and, in my opinion, the best Bee Gees song in a vast catalog of terrible, wonderful disco!
Disco and synthpop pioneer Patrick Cowley’s early compositions have been compiled and officially released, including the long-form “Journey Home,” where bubbling synth leads mix with didgeridoo-like bass and a slo-mo 4/4 disco thump.
I’m not from Chicago, but that doesn’t stop me from loving this 1982 Chi City theme song from the Light Touch Band and the 2013 rework from DJ KON.
Digging through the mix archives, I unearthed and edited this early evening segment of a live set from summer 2012.
Dimitri From Paris joins All Good Funk Alliance and The Sol Power All Stars tonight at U Street Music Hall
An absolutely amazing night of house music, from the afro- and Latin-flavored deep sounds of The Sol Power All Stars (complete with live percussion, as always), to the funky electronic-tinged house of All Good Funk Alliance, to the classic, deep, and soulful house that Dimitri From Paris calls his stock-in-trade. This is a do-not-miss night!
In the summer of 1979 at Chicago’s Comiskey Park, 50,000 ill-informed people attended Disco Demolition Night. Who’d want to demolish this disco gem from Candi Staton?
I first heard Gary Byrd and The G.B. Express “The Crown” about 5 years ago, but could not find a decent copy. Then low and behold this cat, Secret Sun on Soundcloud, dropped his edit.
No reason, just a mix. This one includes the track “Catch Monkey (2AM Dub)” by none other than local talent The Sol Power All-Stars, and a whole bunch of sweet Gavri edits of classic disco material.
