10 Disco-Influenced House Tunes Every DJ Should Have In Their Record BagDavid Akermanis | Saturday, March 13th, 2010 | No Comments »
If you’ve been to any Vital events lately I’m sure it would come as no surprise to you that I’ve developed a serious affinity for everything funky and disco. I’ve always found it challenging, given that I love melodic progressive house, to find a sweet spot between music I like to produce and music I can rock a crowd with when I’m live in a club or lounge.
Over the past while I’ve found that not only do people LOVE disco, but I don’t feel like a total shill or sellout while playing it. In fact, it makes me all happy and giddy inside (that may be the alcohol). This isn’t entirely surprising though – disco gave birth to house music after all. Let’s also not forget that people love classics, and a modern remake of a discoey track from the yesteryear is a surefire recipe for dance floor success.
Here are some of the tracks that have been moving & shaking while I’ve been out record slinging; each is fundamentally rooted in disco or is a remake of an old classic:
10. Another Chance – I Can’t Wait (Original Mix)
09. Mange Le Funk – I Still Want You (Original & Bellatrax Remixes)
08. Malente – I Like It (Riva Starr Snatch! Remix)
07. Bionik Phunk – In My Head (ATFC’s Timmy’s In My Head Mix)
06. JCA, Solaphinics – Total Love (Raul Rincon Rootz Remix)
05. Sandy Rivera & Andy Daniell – Whatever (ATFC Remix)
04. Seamus Haji & Romain Curtis – I’ve Been Looking ft. Awa (Seamus Haji Vocal Mix)
03. James Junior – Come Home With Me (Jonny Montana & Craig Stewart & Conan Liquid Remixes)
02. Sia Lauren Flax ft. Sia – You’ve changed (MK D-troit Mix)
01. Solu Music feat. KimBlee – Fade (Avicii Remix)
