Any Major Disco Vol. 5

December 29th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments


As last year, we are seeing out December with a mix of disco songs, especially for New Year’s Eve. After the annus horribilis we have had — 2016 cannot piss off soon enough — we are going for pure nostalgia with the obvious classics of the genre. Even some which back in the day some of us night have thought of as naff (but how wrong we were about Boney M!).

This mix is set up for dancing — I’ve even sequenced the thing to roughly account for the BPMs — whether in a big group, or with your partner or by yourself. Just put on your dancing shoes and shake your booty to the boogie.

And if you need more to dance to, get multiple fixes of the previous four Any Major Disco mixes and the eight-volume Any Major Funk (which really was mostly disco as well). The whole lot can be found in one handy repository. As far as I can see, all links are still live.

By the way, check out which acts Germany’s Bravo magazine chose as their disco groups of 1978.

And so I wish you, as the Germans say, a good slide into the New Year. May 2017 give us respite from the ceaselessly obnoxious 2016, and may it bring you personally much to be joyful about.

As always, the mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R and includes home-bootyshaken covers. PW in comments.

    Thanks, Dude. For many reasons, but primarily for 2016, I would love for it to be 1977 again. May you slide well into the new year and may we all survive.

    Always hated disco with a passion as a 15 yr old back in 77. I fought for the opposition as a foot soldier in the punk wars back in those days but listening to this as I am and reading through the track listing it brings my geeky hormonal acne ridden teenage years back bettter than a Buzzcocks album ever could. I can almost smell cheap perfume and Martini Rossi. Am equally ashamed/amazed that not only do I know all the tracks but most of the words. We may have won a few battles but we lost the war.

    And that Alicia Bridges song, simply fucking awesome
