  Disco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Initially, most disco songs catered to a nightclub/dancing audience only, rather than general audiences such as radio listeners, but there are many aspects proving opposite tendencies as well; Popular radio-hits were being played in discothèques, as long as they had an easy to follow rhythmic base-pattern close to 120 BPM (beats per minute).
Disco music diverged from the self-composed and performed rock of the 1960s, seeing a return (though not universally) to the influence of producers who hired session musicians to produce hits for different artists whose role was purely to sing and market the songs.
Instruments commonly used by disco musicians included the rhythm guitar, bass, strings (violin, viola, cello), string synth (a type of organ), trumpet, saxophone, trombone, piano, and drums (sometimes using an auxiliary percussionist as well as somebody on a drum kit).

 Disco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Also in the early 1980s, House music, a direct descendent of disco, was forged in the underground clubs of Chicago and New York.
At first house music was essentially the same as disco music, however this changed when the first Drum machines were introduced into the music.
During the first half of the 2000s, there were disco releases by a number of artists including "Spinning Around" by Kylie Minogue (2000), "I Don't Understand It" by Ultra Nate (2001), "Love Foolosophy" by Jamiroquai (2001), "Murder on the Dancefloor" by Sophie Ellis-Bextor (2001), and "Love Invincible" by Michael Franti and Spearhead (2003).

 Science Fair Projects - Disco
In 1975, the pop star Dalida was the first to make disco music in France with her song "J'attendrai" that was a big hit there as well as in Canada and Japan in 1976.
The disco music that caught public attention had its fifteen minutes of fame, but after the novelty faded, the public lost its taste for disco.
Avid disapproval of disco among some rock fans, who perceived rock as more serious and valuable, existed throughout the disco era, growing as disco's influence grew, such that the expression "Disco Sucks" was common by the late 1970s.

 Dog Fashion Disco CD Reviews
To me, Dog Fashion Disco is a heavy rock band with an affinity for releasing their musical quirks and out-of-the-ordinary metallic riffing in compact chunks.
Dog Fashion Disco dive headlong into such lyrical topics including, but not limited to, gun violence, recurring nightmares, abortion, 9 to 5 living, and religious hypocrisy; it might sound like a jumbled mess but it makes the songs quite interesting.
Dog Fashion Disco is Todd Smith on vocals, Greg Combs on guitar, Sennen Quigley on keyboards and guitar, Steve Mears on bass, and John Ensminger on drums and percussion.

Dog Fashion Disco isn't about conforming to the musical tastes of the majority and writing bland, "every song sounds the same" type of stuff.

 Review: EternaLight Rave'n LED flashlight
Single-LED "bulbs" are not nearly as bright as incandescent globes, though, and multi-LED assemblies with brightness equal to that of low-powered household light bulbs cost hundreds of times as much, making them products for a rather small niche at the moment.
All current bright LEDs reach their maximum efficiency at currents of about 20 to 25 milliamps - for the LED by itself, not for the LED and whatever clever circuitry's controlling it in devices like the Raven.
The standard brightness measure for LEDs is the millicandela (mcd) - 1000mcd is one candela.

Discovering Dog Fashion Disco's "Dr. Pirhana" on a mix CD from the mighty voxpoptart, my immediate reaction was to remark on just how much it sounded like Mr.
Dog Fashion Disco basically sounds like what might happen if a metal band was formed by a bunch of guys who were physically abused by clowns in their youth--lots of heavy guitars, screaming, 3/4 beats, Hammond organs and horns, all adding up to circus music as run through a meat grinder.
The rest of the album is a bit of a letdown in that it can't possibly live up to "Rapist Eyes", but it's all a very impressive and well-produced amalgamation of heavy metal and wonky keyboard, delivered with alternating smirks and scowls.

 Cut Copy: Bright Like Neon Love - PopMatters Music Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Bright Like Neon Love, the Australian one man band's debut album, is an homage to all that was cool and campy about the last three decades: '70s disco and new wave, '80s "New Romantic" synthpop, and '90s eurodance.
If you were put off by the disco stuff, you may be breathing a sigh of relief.
Bright Like Neon Love was mixed by Philippe Zdar from eurodance duo Cassius, worth noting because he gives the album just the right flair; he obviously knows how to pan and fade for maximum brain/feet effect.

 Disco   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
image Like all such musical genres, defining a single point of its development is difficult, as many elements of disco music appear on earlier records (such as the 1971 theme from the movie Shaft by Isaac Hayes) (Jones and Kantonen, 1999).
Among the most popular disco artists of the 1970s were Abba, The Bee Gees, Chic, Sister Sledge, Michael Jackson, Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor, Boney M, The Village People, K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Voyage, Salsoul Orchestra, The Trammps, and Barry White.
(Michaels, 1990) Disco is further characterized by a sixteenth note division of the quarter notes established by the bass as shown in the second drum pattern below, after a typical rock drum pattern: image This sixteenth note pattern is often supported by other instruments, and may be implied rather than explicitly present, often involving syncopation.

If disco is to continue dominating the singles market, the formula will have to be stretched and improved, or the bottom will soon fall out.
Eurodisco remains disco's avant-garde and deserves credit for having pioneered longer, more experimental pop-album forms that were unimaginable even five years ago.
While RandB disco has yielded dozens of first-rate singles, it's produced no great albums (aside from anthologies) and almost nothing that challenges Gamble and Huff's best work.

 LEFT OFF THE DIAL - Album Reviews - Dog Fashion Disco: Committed to a Bright Future
Committed to a Bright Future is a crazy musical concoction that happens to be one of the most original albums that I’ve heard in a while.
Stylistically, the music is metal mixed with a bit of ska, a bit of jazz, and a whole lot of unusual keyboards.
Don’t make any mistake though: beyond their craziness, the guys in Dog Fashion Disco are very capable musicians and the songwriting on Committed to a Bright Future is strong.
