You're right, that's great. Cheers
Zaire/DRC bringing the heat
Abeti Masikini - 'Motema Pasi'
Fuck, this is a banger as well. G'wan St Lucia!
Tru Tones - Let's Party
Wow, Carribean disco just kills it
Guyana Trinidad & Tobago
Hamilton Brothers - Music Makes the World Go Around
This thread is gonna hit my pocket hard
Fuck, Hamilton Brothers are from Trinidad & Tobago. It's Keith Paul from that comp who is from Guyana. Aw, well. Another great tune to post
Keith Paul & His G.T. Boom Band - My Life, My Music And Me
shame it stopped there at 4mins, sounded like it was just kicking off!
dont look fez.... dont click on it....just go and do something else....https://www.discogs.com/label/196247-Cultures-Of-Soul-Records
It's already in my basket
looks like that label is on a mission to put out some interesting stuff...had a busy year
like that Greg Belson Divine Disco comp....Horse Meet Disco had him as a guest on their radio show playing some of that gospel disco stuff he digs...some bad bad tunes in his boxes
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
That south African synth disco album looks heavy too...
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
Ait Meslayene - El Fen

Good luck finding a disco record from Saudi Arabia
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
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...
There's some good stuff there!
Coconut's Band - Senyumlah Sayang
Thought Pakistan would be tricky, but this'll do nicely
Nazia Hassan - Boom Boom
Winner of the artist title award so far is Henry Wenceslas Thenard with An Ho
edit: apparently this is classed as France! Fucking colonialists
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
