In addition to the dance and fashion aspects of the disco club scene, there was also a thriving club drug subcultureparticularly for drugs that would enhance the experience of dancing to the loud, bass-heavy music and the flashing colored lights, such as cocaine  nicknamed "blow"amyl nitrite " poppers " and the " Paul Gootenberg states that "[t]he relationship of cocaine to s disco culture cannot be stressed enough While the dance floor was the central arena of seductionactual sex usually took place in the nether regions of the disco: bathroom stalls, exit stairwellsand so on.
In other cases the disco became a kind of 'main course' in a hedonist's menu for a night out. In his paper, "In Defense of Disco"Richard Dyer claims eroticism as one of the three main characteristics of disco. He uses Donna Summer's singles " Love to Love You Baby " and " I Feel Love " as examples of the ever present relationship between the synthesized bass lines and backgrounds to the simulated sounds of orgasms Summers echoes in the tracks, and likens them to the drug-fervent, sexually liberated fans of disco who sought to free themselves through disco's "aesthetic of machine sex.
(Shut It Up) I Cant Dance It - Mark Dagley And His Group* - A Big Disco (Vinyl) their history of the disc jockey and club culture, Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton describe the Sanctuary as "poured full of newly liberated gay men, then shaken and stirred by a weighty concoction of dance music and pharmacoia of pills and potions, the result is a festivaly of carnality.
By describing the music, drugs and liberated mentality as a trifecta coming together to create the festival of carnality, Brewster and Broughton are inciting all three as stimuli for the dancing, sex and other embodied movements that contributed to the corporeal vibrations within the Sanctuary.
This supports the argument that the disco music took a role in facilitating this sexual liberation that was experienced in the discotheques. Further, this coupled with the recent legalization of abortions, the introduction of antibiotics and the pill all facilitated a culture shift around sex from one of procreation to pleasure and enjoyment fostering a very sex positive framework around discotheques. Further, in addition to gay sex being illegal in New York state, until the American Psychiatric Association classified homosexuality as an illness.
Disco was mostly developed from music that was popular on the dance floor in clubs that started playing records instead of having a live band. The first discotheques mostly played swing music. Later on uptempo rhythm and blues became popular in American clubs and northern soul and glam rock records in the UK.
In the early s nightclubs in Paris resorted to playing jazz records during the Nazi occupation. She installed a dance floor with coloured lights and two turntables so she could play records without having a gap in the music. In October the owner of the Scotch Club in Aachen, West Germany chose to install a record player for the opening night instead of hiring a live band.
The patrons were unimpressed until a young reporter, who happened to be covering the opening of the club, impulsively took control of the record player and introduced the records that he chose to play. Klaus Quirini later claimed to thus have been the world's first nightclub DJ. Discotheque dancing became a European trend that was enthusiastically picked up by the American press. The birth of disco is often claimed to be found in the private dance parties held by New York City DJ David Mancuso's home that became known as The Loftan invitation-only non-commercial underground club that inspired many others.
After some months the parties became weekly events and Mancuso continued to give regular parties into the s. In the s, the key counterculture of the sthe hippie movement, was fading away. The economic prosperity of the previous decade had declined, and unemployment, inflation and crime rates had soared.
Political issues like the backlash from the Civil Rights Movement culminating in the form of race riots, the Vietnam War, the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy and the Watergate scandal left many feeling disillusioned and hopeless.
The start of the '70s was marked by a shift in the consciousness of the American people: the rise of the feminist movement, identity politics, gangs, etc. Disco music and disco dancing provided an escape from negative social and economic issues.
In Beautiful Things in Popular CultureSimon Frith highlights the sociability of disco and its roots in s counterculture. When Mancuso threw his first informal house parties, the gay community which made up much of The Loft's attendee roster was often harassed in the gay bars and dance clubswith many gay men carrying bail money with them to gay bars.
But at The Loft and many other early, private discothequesthey could dance together without fear of police action thanks to Mancuso's underground, yet legal, policies. Vince Aletti described it "like going to party, completely mixed, racially and sexually, where there wasn't any sense of someone being more important than anyone else," and Alex Rosner reiterated this saying "It was probably about sixty percent black and seventy percent gay There was a mix of sexual orientation, there was a mix of races, mix of economic groups.
A real mix, where the common denominator was music. Film critic Roger Ebert called the popular embrace of disco's exuberant dance moves an escape from "the general depression and drabness of the political and musical atmosphere of the late seventies.
Pauline Kaelwriting about the disco-themed film Saturday Night Feversaid the film and disco itself touched on "something deeply romantic, the need to move, to dance, and the need to be who you'd like to be. Nirvana is the dance; when the music stops, you return to being ordinary.
During the s, when the discotheque culture from Europe became popular in the United States, several music genres with dance-able rhythms rose to popularity and evolved into different sub-genres: rhythm and blues originated in the ssoul late s and sfunk mids and go-go mids and s; more than "disco", the word "go-go" originally indicated a music club.
Those genres, mainly African-American ones, would influence much of early disco music. During the s, the Motown record label developed a popular and influential own sounddescribed as having "1 simply structured songs with sophisticated melodies and chord changes, 2 a relentless four-beat drum pattern, 3 a gospel use of background voices, vaguely derived from the style of the Impressions, 4 a regular and sophisticated use of both horns and strings, 5 lead singers who were half way between pop and gospel music, 6 a group of accompanying musicians who were among the most dextrous, knowledgeable, and brilliant in all of popular music Motown bassists have long been the envy of white rock bassists [ citation needed ] and 7 a trebly style of mixing that relied heavily on electronic limiting and equalizing boosting the high range frequencies to give the overall product a distinctive sound, particularly effective for broadcast over AM radio.
In the mids and early s, Philadelphia soul and New York soul developed as sub-genres that also had lavish percussionlush string orchestra arrangements and expensive record production processes. At the end of the s, musicians and audiences from the Black, Italian and Latino communities adopted several traits from the hippie and psychedelia subcultures. They included using music venues with a loud, overwhelming sound, free-form dancing, trippy lighting, colorful costumes, and the use of hallucinogenic drugs.
The long instrumental introductions and detailed orchestration found in psychedelic soul tracks by the Temptations are also considered as cinematic soul. In the early s, Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes scored hits with cinematic soul songs that were actually composed for movie soundtracks: " Superfly " and " Theme from Shaft " The latter is sometimes regarded as an early disco song.
Psychedelic soul influenced proto-disco acts such as Willie Hutch and Philadelphia soul. In the early s, the Philadelphia soul productions by Gamble and Huff evolved from the simpler arrangements of the lates into a style featuring lush strings, thumping basslines, and sliding hi-hat rhythms.
These elements would become typical for disco music and are found in several of the hits they produced in the early s:. Other early disco tracks that helped shape disco and became popular on the dance floors of underground discotheque clubs and parties include:. The genre was also shaped by Tom Moultonwho wanted to extend the enjoyment of dance songs — thus creating the extended mix or " remix ", going from a three-minute 45 rpm single to the much longer 12" record.
Frankie Knuckles was not only an important disco DJ; he also helped to develop house music in the s. In the late s, uptempo soul with heavy beats and some associated dance styles and fashion were picked up in the British mod scene and formed the northern soul movement.
As the favoured beat became more uptempo and frantic in the early s, northern soul dancing became more athletic, somewhat resembling the later dance styles of disco and break dancing.
Inthere were an estimated 25, mobile discos and 40, professional disc jockeys in the United Kingdom. Mobile discos were hired deejays that brought their own equipment to provide music for special events. Glam rock tracks were popular, with for example Gary Glitter 's single " Rock and Roll Part 2 " becoming popular on UK dance floors while it did not get any radio airplay. From todisco music continued to increase in popularity as many disco songs topped the charts.
The Hues Corporation 's " Rock the Boat ", a US number-one single and million-seller, was another one of the early disco songs to reach number one. In the northwestern sections of the United Kingdom, the northern soul explosion, which started in the late s and peaked inmade the region receptive to disco, which the region's disc jockeys were bringing back from New York City.
The shift by some DJs to the newer sounds coming from the U. Later inGaynor's number-one disco song was " I Will Survive ", which was seen as a symbol of female strength and a gay anthem,  like her further disco hit, a remake of " I Am What I Am "; in she released " Let Me Know I Have a Right ", a single which gained popularity in the civil rights movements.
Also inVincent Montana Jr. Formed by Harry Wayne Casey a. In this period, rock bands like the English Electric Light Orchestra featured in their songs a violin sound that became a staple of disco music, as in the hit " Evil Woman ", although the genre was correctly described as orchestral rock.
Other disco producers such as Tom Moulton took ideas and techniques from dub music which came with the increased Jamaican migration to New York City in the s to provide alternatives to the "four on the floor" style that dominated. DJ Larry Levan utilized styles from dub and jazz and remixing techniques to create early versions of house music that sparked the genre.
From around the production of the Temptations' album Cloud Nine inhe incorporated some psychedelic influences and started to produce longer, dance-friendly tracks, with more room for elaborate rhythmic instrumental parts. An example of such a long psychedelic soul track is " Papa Was a Rollin' Stone ", which appeared as a single edit of almost seven minutes and an approximately minute-long 12" version in By the early 70s, many of Whitfield's productions evolved more and more towards funk and disco, as heard on albums by the Undisputed Truth and the album G.
The Undisputed Trutha Motown recording act assembled by Whitfield to experiment with his psychedelic soul production techniques, found success with their song " Smiling Faces Sometimes ". Whitfield produced some more disco hits, including " Car Wash " by Rose Royce from the album soundtrack to the film Car Wash.
Insinger, songwriter and producer Willie Hutchwho had been signed to Motown sincenow signed with Whitfield's new label, and scored a successful disco single with his song [[In and Out Willie Hutch song "In and Out"] in Other Motown artists (Shut It Up) I Cant Dance It - Mark Dagley And His Group* - A Big Disco (Vinyl) to disco as well. Diana Ross embraced the disco sound with her successful outing " Love Hangover " from her self-titled album. The Supremesthe group that made Ross famous, scored a handful of hits in the disco clubs without her, most notably 's " I'm Gonna Let My Heart Do the Walking " and, their last charted single before disbanding, 's "You're My Driving Wheel".
At the request of Motown that he produce songs in the disco genre, Marvin Gaye released " Got to Give It Up " indespite his dislike of disco. He vowed not to record any songs in the genre, and actually wrote the song as a parody.
However, several of Gaye's songs have disco elements, including " I Want You " Stevie Wonder released the disco single " Sir Duke " in as a tribute to Duke Ellingtonthe influential jazz legend who had died in It contained the disco single " Baby That's Backatcha ". Several of Motown's solo artists who left the label went on to have successful disco songs.
Mary WellsMotown's first female superstar with her signature song " My Guy " written by Smokey Robinsonabruptly left the label in She briefly reappeared on the charts with the disco song "Gigolo" in Jimmy Ruffinthe elder brother of the Temptations lead singer David Ruffinwas also signed to Motown, and released his most successful and well-known song " What Becomes of the Brokenhearted " as a single in Ruffin eventually left the record label in the mids, but saw success with the disco song " Hold On To My Love ", which was written and produced by Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, for his album Sunrise.
Edwin Starrknown for his Motown protest song " War "reentered the charts in with a pair of disco songs, " Contact " and " H. Radio ". The song was intended as an affectionate disco-style pastiche of the Motown sound, in particular the various duets recorded by Marvin Gaye with Tammi Terrell and Kim Weston. Many Motown groups who had left the record label charted with disco songs. The Jackson 5one of Motown's premier acts in the early s, left the record company in Jermaine Jacksonhowever, remained with the label after successful songs like " I Want You Back " and " ABC "and even the disco song " Dancing Machine " The Detroit Spinners were also signed to the Motown label and saw success with the Stevie Wonder-produced song " It's a Shame " in They left soon after, on the advice of fellow Detroit native Aretha Franklinto Atlantic Recordsand there had disco songs like " The Rubberband Man " However, one single, "The Night"was released in Britain inand thanks to popularity from the Northern Soul circuit, reached number seven on the UK Singles Chart.

In s Munich, West Germanymusic producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte made a decisive contribution to disco music with a string of hits for Donna Summerwhich became known as the "Munich Sound".
The final product, which contained a series of simulated orgasmsinitially was not intended for release, but when Moroder played it in the clubs it caused a sensation and he released it.

The song charted in different European countries. Another prominent European disco act was the pop group Luv' from the Netherlands. Euro disco continued evolving within the broad mainstream pop music scene, even when disco's popularity sharply declined in the United States, abandoned by major U. In Decemberthe film Saturday Night Fever was released. It was a huge success and its soundtrack became one of the best-selling albums of all time, (Shut It Up) I Cant Dance It - Mark Dagley And His Group* - A Big Disco (Vinyl).
The idea for the film was sparked by a New York magazine  article titled " Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night " which supposedly chronicled the disco culture in mids New York City, but was (Shut It Up) I Cant Dance It - Mark Dagley And His Group* - A Big Disco (Vinyl) revealed to have been fabricated.
The recording, which was included as part of the "MacArthur Park Suite" on her double live album Live and Morewas eight minutes and 40 seconds long on the album.

A remix of "MacArthur Park" by Summer topped the Billboard Dance Charts marking five consecutive decades with a number-one song on the charts.
The band Chic was formed mainly by guitarist Nile Rodgers —a self-described "street hippie" from late s New York—and bassist Bernard Edwards. Other successful songs by Chic include the often-sampled " Good Times " and " Everybody Dance " The group regarded themselves as the disco movement's rock band that made good on the hippie movement's ideals of peace, love, and freedom.

Sylvestera flamboyant and openly gay singer famous for his soaring falsetto voice, scored his biggest disco hit in late with " You Make Me Feel Mighty Real ". His singing style was said to have influenced the singer Prince. At that time, disco was one of the forms of music most open to gay performers.
They were known for their onstage costumes of typically male-associated jobs and ethnic minorities and achieved mainstream success with their hit song " Macho Man ". Other songs include " Y. At the height of its popularity, many non-disco artists recorded songs with disco elements, such as Rod Stewart with his " Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? Progressive rock group Pink Floyd used disco-like drums and guitar in their song " Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2 " which became their only number-one single in both the US and UK.
Geils Band with " Come Back " The disco sound was also adopted by "non-pop" artists, including the U. Easy listening icon Percy Faithin one of his last recordings, released an album entitled Disco Party and recorded a disco version of his " Theme from A Summer Place " in Classical music was even adapted for disco, notably Walter Murphy 's "A Fifth of Beethoven"based on the first movement of Beethoven 's 5th Symphony and "Flight 76"based on Rimsky-Korsakov 's " Flight of the Bumblebee "and Louis Clark 's Hooked On Classics series of albums and singles.
Other examples include S. Several parodies of the disco style were created. Rick Deesat the time a radio DJ in Memphis, Tennesseerecorded " Disco Duck " and "Dis-Gorilla" ; Frank Zappa parodied the lifestyles of disco dancers in " Disco Boy " on his Zoot Allures album, and in " Dancin' Fool " on his Sheik Yerbouti album; "Weird Al" Yankovic 's eponymous debut album includes a disco song called "Gotta Boogie", an extended pun on the similarity of the disco move to the American slang word " booger ".
Comedian Bill Cosby devoted his entire album Disco Bill to disco parodies. InMad Magazine released a flexi-disc titled Mad Disco featuring six full-length parodies of the genre. By the end of the s, a strong anti-disco sentiment developed among rock music fans and musicians, particularly in the United States. Rock artists such as Rod Stewart and David Bowie who added disco elements to their music were accused of being sell-outs. The punk subculture in the United States and United Kingdom was often hostile to disco,  although in the UK, many early Sex Pistols fans such as the Bromley Contingent and Jordan quite liked disco, often congregating at nightclubs such as Louise's in Soho and the Sombrero in Kensington.
The track " Love Hangover " by Diana Rossthe house anthem at the former, was cited as a particular favourite by many early UK punks. Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedysin the song "Saturday Night Holocaust", likened disco to the cabaret culture of Weimar -era Germany for its apathy towards government policies and its escapism. Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo said that disco was "like a beautiful woman with a great body and no brains", and a product of political apathy of that era.
Anti-disco sentiment was expressed in some television shows and films. In one scene of the comedy film Airplane! July 12,became known as "the day disco died" because of the Disco Demolition Nightan anti-disco demonstration in a baseball double-header at Comiskey Park in Chicago. As the second game was about to begin, the raucous crowd stormed onto the field and proceeded by setting firestearing out seats and pieces of turf, and other damage. The Chicago Police Department made numerous arrests, and the extensive damage to the field forced the White Sox to forfeit the second game to the Detroit Tigerswho had won the first game.
Disco's decline in popularity after Disco Demolition Night was rapid. On July 21,the top six records on the U. Dahl stated in a interview that disco was "probably on its way out [at the time]. But I think it [Disco Demolition Night] hastened its demise".
The anti-disco movement, combined with other societal and radio industry factors, changed the face of pop radio in the years following Disco Demolition Night. Starting in the s, country music began a slow rise in American main pop charts. Emblematic of country music's rise to mainstream popularity was the commercially successful movie Urban Cowboy.
The continued popularity of power pop and the revival of oldies in the late s was also related to disco's decline; the film Grease was emblematic of this trend. Coincidentally, the star of both films was John Travoltawho in had starred in Saturday Night Feverwhich remains one of the most iconic disco films of the era. During this period of decline in disco's popularity, several record companies folded, were reorganized, or were sold.
Midsong International Records ceased operations in Salsoul Records continues to exist in the s, but primarily is used as a reissue brand. Many groups that were popular during the disco period subsequently struggled to maintain their success—even those that tried to adapt to evolving musical tastes.
The Bee Geesfor instance, had only one top entry 's " One " and three more top songs despite recording and releasing far more than that and completely abandoning disco in their s and s songs in the United States after the s, even though numerous songs they wrote and had other artists perform were successful. Of the handful of groups not taken down by disco's fall from favor, Kool and the GangDonna Summerthe Jacksons —and Michael Jackson in particular—stand out: In spite of having helped define the disco sound early on,  they continued to make popular and danceable, if more refined, songs for yet another generation of music fans in the s and beyond.
Six months prior to the chaotic event in Decemberpopular progressive rock radio station WDAI WLS-FM had suddenly switched to an all-disco format, disenfranchising thousands of Chicago rock fans and leaving Dahl unemployed.
The latter also helped bring the Chicago house genre to the airwaves. Factors that have been cited as leading to the decline of disco in the United States include economic and political changes at the end of the s, as well as burnout from the hedonistic lifestyles led by participants. In Januaryrock critic Robert Christgau argued that homophobiaand most likely racismwere reasons behind the movement,  a conclusion seconded by John Rockwell.
Craig Werner wrote: "The Anti-disco movement represented an unholy alliance of funkateers and feministsprogressives and puritansrockers and reactionaries. Nonetheless, the attacks on disco gave respectable voice to the ugliest kinds of unacknowledged racism, sexism and homophobia.
Steve Dahlwho had spearheaded Disco Demolition Night, denied any racist or homophobic undertones to the promotion, saying, "It's really easy to look at it historically, from this perspective, and attach all those things to it. But we weren't thinking like that. Inthe music industry in the United States underwent its worst slump in decades, and disco, despite its mass popularity, was blamed. The producer-oriented sound was having difficulty mixing well with the industry's artist-oriented marketing system.
Despite its decline in popularity, disco music remained relatively successful in the early s, with songs like Irene Cara 's " Flashdance What a Feeling " theme to the film Flashdance and the theme song to the film Fame later re-sung by Erica Gimpel for the TV show of the same nameMichael Jackson's " Thriller " and " Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' ", and Madonna 's first album—all which had strong disco influences. Record producer Giorgio Moroder's soundtracks to American GigoloFlashdance and Scarface which also had a heavy disco influence proved that the style was still very much embraced.
Queen 's album, Hot Space was inspired by the genre as well. To a significant extent, the transition from disco to s dance music was one of relabeling. Comes from volleyball or more specifically, beach volleyball.
Someone is "faced" when a member of the opposing team smashes the ball down and it hits them directly, you guessed it, in the face.
