Over the last decade-and-a-half there's been a big disco revival afoot in the dance music (and, really, rock music) communities. Maybe you've noticed: since about 1997, a lot of music has borrowed really heavily from disco, whether it's French house acts like Daft Punk or Dimitri from Paris, or dance rock bands like The Rapture, The Juan MacLean, or even Franz Ferdinand, or next-big-thing dance genres like Electroclash & Blog House. I'm a huge disco person, but to be frank a lot of the disco-influenced output of the last several years has struck me as pretty obnoxious: unoriginal, derivative, shamelessly trendy, etc. Anyway, I've thrown together a little mix of disco revival stuff I've liked over the last decade. Enjoy!
