This show was 12th in the global disco chart and 16th in the global funk chart.
In light of the remarkable resurgence of Chic and Nile Rodgers over the last few years, I couldn't resist putting together a mix of my favourite Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards productions. Two brilliant jazz-funk musicians whose chemistry produced a catalogue of timeless dance music that has brought joy to so many people over the last few decades and is now doing so for a new generation.
Nile's return to popular music is reflected in my inclusion of one of his recent Daft Punk collaborations and his re-working of a Chic classic with Sam London. Both of which I think are great.
Imagine a world without the music of Nile Rodgers? I know, it's a horrible thought. Thank goodness for Nile Rodgers, and for the late Bernard Edwards who channelled the waterfall of music from Nile's mind into those early Chic classics, setting them on the path to becoming a legendary music partnership.
