About

Although Disco lost some of its momentum as the ’70s became the ’80s, it didn’t die — it mutated into a variety of different dance-based genres, ranging from dance-pop and hip-hop to house and techno.  There are distinct traces of disco’s final days in the party side of hip-hop, which sprang from the streets, clubs, and DJ cultures of New York City. Two of disco’s last greatest hits (included here), Taana Gardner’s “Heartbeat” and Indeep’s “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life,” are just as integral to rap as they are to the glittering balls of disco.
This collection recaptures 20 hits from the glory days of disco — all on one disc.
