I don't want to be that person who posts songs they heard on GTA, but this masterpiece deserves to be acknowledged in this thread.

@Femme Fatale Great choice. I went to see /photograph Juan Atkins aka Cybotron (he has a track in Vice City) and he played Supernature. It was a great moment, hearing it played over the sound system.

Disco died during the summer of 1979. I don't think it really did. I believe that it evolved. I wish I would have lived that era, especially in New York.

Some of my favorite funky disco tracks which were made to move the body smoothly.

 

Instant Funk - Bodyshine

 

Cela - I'm In Love

Definitely. Just think that Gino Soccio track above came out in '81 and then in the 80's we had all that nice Italo Disco.

It's disco time. Well sort of. I assume we can call those two tracks disco-funk but back in the days I guess people still called it disco dance music. Not suitable for the pop charts unless it was Earth Wind & Fire or Kool & The Gang which I love by the way.

 

Euro Funk - Dynomite - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

 

 

Gene Dunlap - Take My Love - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My introduction song to Disco music in an old cassette back in the day, good old times.

Donna Summer - I Feel Love

 

Produced by the great Giorgio Moroder. He really left is stamp all over Disco.

 

I Feel Love was one of the first tracks that got me into Disco too. There was this pirate radio station that used to play non-stop Disco on repeat. There was no DJ's, it was literally Disco music on loop and the same loop of 20, 30 tracks or whatever it was kept looping to the point I would know which song was coming on next. I Feel Love was one of the tracks as well as Sister Sledge and Chic. Unbeknownst to me Sister Sledge's music basically was Chic thanks to Niall Rodgers and Bernard Edwards writing and producing their music. 

 

To those of you that remember's Will Smith's "Getting Jiggy With It" here's the original sample. Any Chic song could be a Sister Sledge song and vice versa, cause they were the same writers/producers. Gorgeous girls though ;)

Salsoul records has a huge catalogue of heavy 70's and early 80's disco-funk and post-disco music. The above track has some nice deep bass lines. To bad the song finishes early. I can't stand YouTuber's that do that.

 

Here's some funky Afro-disco boogie from France by Cameroonian musician Pasteur Lappé.

 

 

http://www.pasteurlappe.com/biography.php

 

This dutch post-disco track is very funky with nice heavy bass, guitar licks, horns and sweet female backing vocals. Siegfried Boerleider, which is his real name, was born on October 6, 1951 in Paramaribo, Republic of Suriname (former Dutch colony) a country on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. He participated at the Suriname song festival in 1975 (the same year the country left the Kingdom of the Netherlands to become an independent state) He won the contest and moved to Amsterdam shortly after. He released a few singles and studio projects between 1977 and 1988 and also released an album in 1989 with his short living band The Backlot.

 



Bonus track: Electric Boogie track from one of Steve Watson's own composition and production (featuring his niece and himself on the vocals. Guitars played by Henk Braaf)

The Invisible Man's Band was a short living American disco-funk band that released 2 LP's and a handful of singles in the early 80's. It was made up of the Burke brothers (Clarence Jr., Dennis, James, and Keni), all former members of the Five Stairsteps, best known for their 1970 million seller "O-o-h Child." The Burkes' highest-charting single under this moniker was the chugging dance single "All Night Thing," which was issued on Island Records' Mango imprint in late 1979. It hit number nine R&B on Billboard's charts in early 1980. Their self-titled LP, was issued mid 1980. Other charting singles were "Really Wanna See You" from their second and last album of the same name, released in 1981 on Neil Bogart's Boardwalk Records (with whom the group had worked with during their Five Stairsteps days), "Sunday Afternoon" was their last single they released in 1983 on Move 'n' Groove Records.

 

 

One On One was a pseudonym for Reginald Brown who was a member of New York Port Authority, (named after the largest bus terminal in the U.S.) an obscure funk, soul, disco band that were active in New York in the late '70's in which he played bass and also sang as lead and background vocalist. Brown composed 3 tracks in which only 2 were released as singles during 1981 and 1984. Body Music was the first single and it's a really smooth funky disco track.

You are so right.....disco never died, it just evolved into other forms (because 'disco' became such a toxic word). I was in college from 1978-82, and we called it 'dance music' around '81.

 

Here's a classic mix of disco, go-go & funk....one of my favorites from the spring of '82;
