It's getting HOT in here! Based on the internal numbers, the new Trash Disco series is blowing the roof off! I knew there was a hunger for this back in 2016 when I posted the original 8-set series, but this is crazy. For the uninitiated, the Trash Disco Ultimate Collection is quite possibly the most comprehensive compilation of non-stop classic Disco tracks from the 70's and 80's ever put together in one giant collector's box. You've got the majority of the biggest hits that we all know and love (even if you didn't grow up during this period) and a massive swath of hits that charted on the Billboard's Disco Chart and many that did not, but are considered classics as today's current crop of crate digging DJ's sample the shit out of the most obscure releases.
Volume 4 slows the tempo down quite a bit and throws in a lot of Funk into the mix. Tracks like "Dazz" by Brick, "Ffun" by Con Funk Shun, and "Flash Light" by Parliament were massive party grooves during this period. It's hard to discern the difference but Funk is just a sub-category of Disco, which later became 80's R&B Dance. Regardless, these fantastic tracks fit in quite nicely within the entire spectrum of the genre.
You'll notice a lot of the same names come up in the track list for the creation of these classic edits. Dr. Packer and Dimitri From Paris are some of the more established DJ's that are household names (amongst others). That being said, Freddy from Digital Visions Remix makes some of the greatest edits to these gems. Y'all know I don't like to share music. If you're interested in having some of these edits for yourself, just message Freddy on his Facebook page and he'll work out something reasonable for you. I promise you, he doesn't bite and is a super nice guy.
I want to thank Weno for pointing out that some of the original Trash Disco compilations had broken links. They've all been fixed now, so if you only want the hits, that would be a good starting point.
I'm not certain how many sets there are going to be in this final Disco anthology. Each one is well over two hours, and I still have a ton more to create. I may release a couple more and then take a break to post some newer material and then revisit the remaining sets in late December. I'll just play things by ear.
In the meantime, get ready for some booty-shaking good times!...ENJOY!
