(((Sonorama Podcast))) No.18: Disco

  1. -:-- / -:--

Sonorama this week takes on the soundz of the 70’s and all the cheese with it, bringing you some global infused disco from the far corners of the globe. Of course  we’ve thrown in some Latin disco, but we’ve avoided the NY scene (maybe with the exception of Charo) and opted for some deeper cuts  from Mexico and Spain. Also Charly takes us on a little set of galactic space disco sounds including a track by John Williams off the soundtrack to Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Lastly we threw in some bits of disco funk from the African continent including a rare Nigerian disco cut that recently got reissued by one of Nigeria’s seminal figures in Afro-funk and soul, Mr. Orlando Julius. Enjoy the tunes. EB&CG
