Nu-disco is a 21st century dance music genre associated with a renewed interest in 1970s and early 1980s disco. Spin magazine placed an umlaut over the "u" in "nu", used the term interchangeably with Eurodisco, and cited strong Italo disco as well as electroclash influences. Nu-disco is most popular in Europe & Australia. Miami Horror, Cut//Copy, Cadillac and Bag Raiders epitomize the Australian nu-disco sound. The French disco-revival sound can be seen in big acts such as Daft Punk, Breakbot, Is Tropical, Anoraak, and even Justice. While the latter may qualify more as a house group. The genre is slowly making its appearance within mainstream US and Asian music markets, with most significant success in the US based in Los Angeles and Miami. The most recognized artists of this genre are Astronomica, Neighbour, Classixx, Ilija Rudman, Crazy P, 6th Borough Project, and many others.
