One of the earliest forms of electronic dance music, it eventually faded by the late-1980s as it merged into other genres of electronic and European dance music. Italo disco borrowed elements from traditional disco music, yet was more electronic. The genre made strong usage of drum machines and synthesizers, giving it an almost spacey and futuristic style, and combined elements of pop music with "melancholy melodies, weird sounds and unorthodox production techniques" . But also , in particular with Malavasi & Petrus initially productions ( peter jacques band, revanche , macho) . Then, they passed from eurodisco to usa disco. Impeccable smooth harmonies, dynamic basslines, subtle piano chords, lush strings, irresistible hooks, explicit synths, multiple breaks and an overall funky sound characterized the Petrus & Malavasi productions. (change and even firefly, jimmy ross).
