    What's Happening People is the happiest tune about corruption, assassinations and plane hijackings I've ever heard. Great stuff!

    *presses play again*

    Fuck, I need this. Cheers ska :(

    Great stuff there dialectician, cheers :)

    Not convinced you can call that Serbian one disco rutabowa ?

    Mexican one is dubious too, but I'll put it in for now, cheers! :)

    South Korea? Ugh. Technically disco I guess, but what a load of wank. Temporarily going in, but I'm sure we can do better.

    Algeria only has one that I can find. Luckily it's great :cool:

    Ait Meslayene - El Fen

    Fez909 yeh i realised after reading the thread more that both those are stretching the definition of disco more than you want. there'll def be some more discoey disco stuff from mexico, it was big there, i'll ask around

    Yep, that's gonna be one the harder ones. There's a few others that might be hard/impossible, too. Andorra, Vatican City, etc.

    Shame about Saudi. Some of the traditional music would make great disco. Some of the elements of this Talal Madah track, for instance, sound well sampleable. Maybe I'll have to make my own edits of trad music for the impossible countries :D :facepalm:

    there are quite a few countries that are going to v difficult. e.g. I even found a compilation called "Music from Western Samoa: From Conch Shell to Disco" but the "disco" track is still pretty much all conch shell tbh

    no chance to listen yet, but I just came across this collection of disco from behind the iron curtain - plenty of countries represented...

    Ghanain Hilife with some strong disco influence

    had a better more disco track to post but not on youtube

    Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band's album this year has been my favourite LP of 16...not disco but very hipshaking...amazing to have a career in the 70s and then do some of your best work 40 years later

    I went to a festival in Liverpool in the summer to see pat Thomas, but the kids played up and we had to leave before he came on. :(

    that is sad...the show and band are absolutely on fire - so tight and pure energy...hopefully this'll be the start of a comeback thing for him...i was shocked to hear how old he was...looked in his 30/40s from where i was standing
