Disco Music

Disco Music is a musical style originating in the early 70’s. It began to emerge from America’s urban nightlife scene, where it had been curtailed to house parties and makeshift discotheques / night clubs. Well-known disco music performers included Donna Summer, the Bee Gees, Gloria Gaynor, the Trammps, and France Joli. While disco music artists /performers gained much public attention, record producers working behind the scenes played an important role in developing the “disco sound”. Many non-disco artists recorded disco songs at the height of disco’s popularity, and films such as Saturday Night Fever and contributed to the disco’s rise in mainstream popularity. By the late 1970s, most major U.S. cities had thriving disco club scenes, where DJ’S would mix a seamless sequence of dance records. Disco music was a worldwide phenomenon and was a key influence in the later development of electronic dance music and house music & freestyle music.
