Disco is an up-tempo style of dance music that originated in the early 1970s, mainly from funk popular originally with gay and fl audiences in large U.S. cities, and derives its name from the French word discothèque.
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 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.

 Disco St. James Encyclopedia of Pop Culture - Find Articles
Disco ushered in a new post-1960s concept of hedonistic weekends, holidays, and exciting after-hours activity that was open to anyone with a reasonable income, a basic sense of rhythm and a good body.
The disco beat was the anthem of the dancers, the disco floor a wonderland of sexual promise where anything might happen, providing the perfect environment to indulge the pursuit of one's fantasy.
Though disco's dreamland of sexual fulfillment is often remembered as the longing of the heterosexual male libido, the real origins of disco's sexual imagery lie in the gay club scene of New York and San Francisco, where its camp atmosphere of sexual reverie was first born.

 Disco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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 bass-pattern close to 120 BPM (beats per minute).
Disco fever reached a peak in South Asia after the release of the Bollywood film Disco Dancer in 1982.
Disco music diverged from the rock of the 1960s, elevating music from the raw sound of 4-piece garage bands to refined music composed by producers who contracted local symphony and philharmonic orchestras and session musicians.

 Disco - Wikiquote
Disco was also created by DJs in its initial phase, though these tended to be club jocks rather than mobile party jocks -- records by Barry White, Eddie Kendricks and others became dancefloor hits in New York clubs like Tamberlane and Sanctuary and were crossed over onto radio by Frankie Crocker at station WBLS.
For less creative disco DJs, however, the ideal was to slip-cute smoothly from the end of one record into the beginning of the next.
They also created a context for breaks rather than foregrounding them, and the disco records which emerged out of the influence of this type of mixing tended to feature long introductions, anthemic choruses and extended vamp sections, all creating a tension which was released by the break.

 A history of disco music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Disco is an up-tempo style of dance music that originated in the early 1970s, mainly from funk and soul music, popular originally with gay and fl audiences in large U.S. cities, and derives its name from the French word discothèque (meaning nightclub), coined from disc + bibliotèque (library) by La Discothèque in Rue Huchette.
This music was coined disco, of which there are two flavors and time periods: disco 1.0, which is firmly connected to soul and funk in the first half of the seventies and disco 2.0 in the second half of the seventies, as the incarnation of gay hedonistic club culture.
Disco had already been going for ten years when the first electronic drum tracks began to appear out of Chicago, and in that time it had already suffered the slings and arrows of merciless commercial exploitation, dilution and racial and sexual prejudice which culminated in the 'disco sucks' campaign.

The terms disco and 'go-go' were synonymous for a while, the latter from several French clubs and overseas imitations that called themselves Whisky à Go-Go, from the French title of the Ealing film comedy Whisky Galore ('48).
Go-go joints in the USA in the '60s were taverns with a juke box and a scantily-clad dancer in a cage; blue- and white-collar males alike stopped on the way home from work and tried not to blink, each hoping to see more flesh than the next fellow.
Black young people patronized discos because they could afford it: it is a cheaper way to run a club than hiring live music (and Rosenkrantz regretted in the 1960s that the new versions of the jukebox clubs were putting musicians out of work).

Relegated to the B-side probably because it wasn't the sort of straight-ahead, energetic disco typical of the time, but instead, one that straddled the boundary between R&B and disco; it can probably be described as something of a throwback to the earlier days of 'disco as danceable R&B'.

Lisa Millett has released numerous disco flavored house in the last 4 years, this is another one with an early 80's feel, very bass synth driven with rock style energitic vocals, mainstream appeal, dub mix doesn't work, it's overly repetitive, the synth is too loud and annoying, intrumental version also supplied.
Classy and feminine, tries hard to emulate the disco feeling and succeeds, a little filter here and there, no samples and loops, enjoyable to listen, all mixes -4 of them- are excellent, the LP version has mainstream appeal, very enjoyable.

 Disco - Free Music Downloads - MP3 Downloads - Download.com Music
Electronica is a blanket term that describes electronic music, but it mainly references a style in which the use of electronic technology (drum machines, synthesizers, samplers) takes a role in the creative process.
Innovation around the development of these devices gave way to the beginnings of Detroit techno and Chicago house, with hats tipped to the early '70s disco-funk influence, a breath of fresh air to American and British music.
In the mid '90s, drum 'n' bass, trip-hop, techno, big-beat, and garage were sired by British DJs, and though each took a dramatically different set of chromosomes from its mother, all were born from disco hips.
