It was at the start of lockdown in America (which feels like it was two months ago but was only a week ago) that Peter Croce wrote something in his label @rocksteadydisco 's excellent newletter that stuck with me.
"I'm a little bugged out about it," he wrote. "I feel like Rocksteady Disco's entire mission is to COMBAT social distancing and isolation. I believe we need to do it because we need to take care of one another and those with compromised health." That contradiction more than anything is why we started StayHomeDisco and why we'll continue for so long as anyone is listening.
Peter is the head of Rocksteady Disco, which Lauren Krieger profiled for 5 Mag last summer. While you're here check out his presumably extremely new or extremely prophetic Social Distance Edits on Bandcamp: https://rocksteadydisco.bandcamp.com/
