i'm having trouble finding good nu disco. for reference stuff on par with this:

i like vocals but get a little tired of glitterbox type stuff, find it to be dumbed down sonically. never cared much for joey negro.

loved this one - horse meat disco ft. kathy sledge - "falling deep in love" - great chorus

what should i check out?

Check out some old disco you haven't heard yet.

the Glitterbox compilations are so weird because I'll see stuff on them I like and think: well, the rest of the stuff I don't know must be good because what I do know here is excellent; and then I'll find the stuff I'm not already familiar with is really drab tech-house.

When Tim Sweeney plays himself on Beats In Space without a guest there's always a good bit of new nu disco.

Recommending nu-disco while swerving Glitterbox and Joey Negro is kinda tricky. My current favourite is The Shapeshifters ft Billy Porter "Finally Ready"... which is, er, on Glitterbox.

Just for your personal information I’ve spent 5 years checking out old disco I haven’t heard yet. But I’d love to hear about any of your favorites post-2000.

Xp hey thanks mike. I actually like glitterbox but i’m just finding it a little intimidating to comb through all the stuff they’ve released over the past few years lol. I’ll check that one out.

Joey negro edits leave me non-plussed more often than not but i love some of the comps he’s put out espesh the italian ones.

Xposts to boxedjoy that’s exactly my experience! Tim sweeney is a good call

part of the difficulty is tasteful balanced sounds building over 32 bar sections to a few vocal samples only does so much for me... i feel like a lot of disco remixers / editors rely on that. i need a persona / something interesting going on in the lyrics department, or like a looseness / aliveness, someone playing a jazzy solo in real time. static 32 bar loops = snoozeville = i just zone out. i hate hearing that kind of music on a dance floor. i appreciate the chicken lips stuff because it's kinda loose and improv-y, sounds like they're editing down live jams.

i went back through my reflex edits.. that guy knows how to mix a sweet-sounding edit + he has a great sense of phrasing that usually avoids the static loop for 32 bars thing. i do wish he went a little further out there with weirder selections but i mean you can't get any better as far as 'classy, crowd-pleasing' goes.

Just realized this is more house than nu-disco but you know what? I think the nu-disco crowd will appreciate it anyway so fuck it

and the full length emperor machine version of little boots is perfect for when you need to step away to get a drink and pee and read a short story or what have you
