…because disco

in the 1970s i was but a child and, even though disco was around, i was a bit too young to hit the clubs. i really began appreciating disco music when i started falling for house music. my curiosity made track down the samples and opened my ears to the disco sound. so here’s a good end of summer late seventies disco mix for those who like to party and can’t stop dancin’.
