Trippin’ At The Disco

ks-trippin-at-the-disco

Hello! A new Gregorian calendar year and a brand-new mix to start off the year. Well, it’s not brand new, as I created it a few months ago – I just didn’t get a chance to upload until now. It feels like the right time, though, ‘cos let’s face it, 2016 was a bit of a bummer all around. A party mix is what’s needed for the beginning of 2017. Early last year, I read the excellent Turn The Beat Around: The Secret History Of Disco. It was recommended to me by Sam Jones (a.k.a Lesbian Horse). I started trawling YouTube, to listen to tracks mentioned in the book. I also found a message board thread about psychedelic disco tracks. Not being aware that there were disco tunes considered to be trippy, I downloaded as many as I could find and selected some for a mix. I tried to sequence the songs to sound as if a club DJ were spinning them. Hope you enjoy it – some music for your feet and for your head! You can listen to and download the mix here: The Kaleidophonic Stroboscope – Trippin’ At The Disco
