We are excited to introduce our new “Instant Expert” series of playlists. Each week, the crew at Playlist Giants will be releasing mixes covering a specific genre or theme. Playlists Giants will do all the work so that you can instantly become an expert on a wide variety of music topics. Impress your friends with your vast knowledge of newly acquired tidbits learned from our musical offerings or simply press play and let the music speak for itself!
Today's offering is “Instant Expert: The Roots of Disco.” We dug through our crates and combed the web to bring you a selection of songs that will allow you to impress even the most knowledgeable disco devotees.
Talk the talk to sound like an expert:
"The real 'roots' of disco go back to the private clubs in NYC like The Loft and the influence of the Philly Sounds"
"You can almost see the diso ball spinning in 'I Can't Get Enough' by Willie Hutch...but that song preceded the disco era by nearly 10 years."
"The era represented by this playlist is 1968-1974...not only was disco not dead yet...it hadn't even been invented!"
"I can't decide which version of 'Law of the Land' I like better...you decide."
Now put on those dancin' shoes...
