Disco was a staple of American music and culture during the 1970s. Disco peaked in the late 70s and subsequently experienced a backlash. DJs love disco music for its groovy, danceable essence that typically clocks in at around 120 beats per minute. Disco music is also known for its lush orchestrations - including instruments like violins, and sound effects like hand claps and disco lasers.
The playlist that follows starts slow and groovy, before delivering faster beats later in the set. The playlist includes tracks from Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, The Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, the Salsoul Orchestra, Cerrone, Andrea True Connection and many more.
Ambient DJ continues its tradition of selecting a signature drink for each wedding cocktail hour playlist. To match the colorful flamboyance of the disco era, we've selected the Sloe Gin Fizz, a refreshing drink that balances sweet against tart. Sloe Gin is sourced from England where tart "sloe berries" are infused in gin. For more information about the Sloe Gin Fizz, click here.
And now let's get into the music!
