In 2011 disco became yet more engulfed into its musical siblings. Its intrinsic sounds were in a constant state of flux, typical of the ever-changing beast dance music. The new breed of disco brought the arrival of basslines from artists such as Maxxi Soundsystem and Maceo Plex and further merged it with contemporary house music.
‘Downtown Express’ is a celebration of this that goes the distance to champion the best releases from a sea of new talent to embrace the genre such as David August, Benoit & Sergio and Tiger & Woods, who were all equally as likely to break records on traditional disco labels as they were techno imprints such as Visionquest, Crosstown Rebels and Hot Creations in 2011. These records broke the existing rules, bringing samples and elements from disco roots with their own current interpretation, in line with the Future Disco established vision. Future Disco has mapped the reemergence of the disco phenomena over its five year history. Garnering titles such as iTunes compilation of the year, it is a voice for anyone seeking knowledge, comfort and pleasure from a genre that has come to eclipse not only a style, but also a desire to dance.
