These dudes (and ladies) can rap and rap and rap some more. Funky Four Plus One More’s “Rappin and Rocking the House” is one of my very favorites from the disco rap genre.
DJ Harvey takes the perfect disco funk jam, “Gotta Keep On Trying” by Tenderness, strips it down, and stretches it out to build the excitement and energy to epic proportions.
To celebrate KC’s amazing rotary mixer find, he mixed together some tunes and called it Rotary Connection (not to be confused with the awesome band of the same name).
“NY So Hi” is the lead single off of NYC DJ/producer Eli Escobar’s debut album.
With this tune Brass Construction perhaps laid down the greatest side of disco dance floor funk of all time.
Samuel Jonathan Johnson brings the funk with this in-the-pocket classic, “Sweet Love,” off his one and only album entitled My Music.
This remix of “Just the Way You Are”—from Bruno Mars’ debut album, Doo Wops & Hooligans—brings the pop R&B of the original into the disco.
Idris Muhammed’s Loft classic, “Could Heaven Ever Be Like This?” is here edited with a light touch by Leftside Wobble.
Alex Metric & Oliver are amazing producers in their own right but when they come together it makes magic. “Galaxy” embodies everything that I love about Nu-Disco.
Culture of Soul just released Joanne Wilson’s “Got to Have You” on 12″ vinyl and included it on their forthcoming Tropical Disco Hustle compilation. Currently on heavy rotation!
