Nu-Disco

Well here I was waiting around for disco to come back when it already done did come back - it's called Nu-Disco and it's been around since 2002 and non-hipster Nancy G only finds out about it in this week's Sunday New York Times:


Disco’s New Big Band Era

“One of the things that I think is cool about disco was that disco is American urban music and in a lot of ways New York music,” Mr. Russom said. “Something about disco supported the coexistence of Latin sounds, white sounds, African sounds, African-American sounds, gay sounds, straight sounds, all these different things. All those distinctions got kind of melted away.”
Here is Crystal Ark Party Machine's cover of Fleetwood Mac's Tusk. Love it.


This will go down as the music of the 2010s I believe.
