Popular Disco Songs Remixed & Reimagined — Thank God It’s Disco Volume 8

We have finally arrived at the grand finale of the ‘Thank God It’s Disco‘ series, and volume 8 offers a richly packed 4-hour set. This compilation provides an appealing mix of familiar favorites and rare gems among popular disco songs, each carefully remastered for today’s audience.

A standout track in this volume is Chemise’s “She Can’t Love,” an underground masterpiece from 1982. Its catchy riff might ring a bell due to its frequent sampling over the years. Purple Disco Machine meticulously remastered this classic, keeping its original charm intact while adding a touch of their disco-funk signature style.

Another treasure among popular disco songs is “New York Moving” by Ahzz, given a fresh lease of life by DJ Disco Cat. The version included here is not only polished for enhanced sound quality, but also rearranged to create a more immersive listening experience.

No collection of popular disco songs is complete without a tribute to the French band Ottawan and their iconic hit “D.I.S.C.O.” Originating in 1979, this song has been sampled numerous times, even being covered by N-Trance and The Young Professionals. An interesting piece of trivia is that one of the song’s authors, Daniel Vangarde, is the father of Thomas Bangalter, one half of the legendary French house duo Daft Punk.

This eighth volume of the series is released with a heavy heart, marking the recent passing of Irene Cara, the phenomenal singer behind the theme songs of 1980s hits like “Fame” and “Flashdance…What A Feeling.” Cara, whose powerful voice and infectious energy left an indelible mark on disco, passed away at 63. This final volume is dedicated to her memory and her contribution to popular disco songs. Irene Cara Escalera (March 18, 1959 – November 25, 2022), may you rest in peace.

Until the next time…ENJOY!
