HERE WE GO FOLKS, ANOTHER FANTASTIC GUEST MIX FOR YOU ALL TO ENJOY IN THE NAME OF MUSIC VS MENTAL HEALTH.

THE DISCOGRAPHY LESSONS ARE PROUD TO SHOWCASE THE TALENTED TRIO THAT IS COLLECTIVE GROOVE!

I KNOW YOU'RE INTRIGUED TO FIND OUT SOME MORE INFO ON THESE GUYS, SO HERE'S SO WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY...

"DISCO DESERVED A BETTER NAME, A BEAUTIFUL NAME BECAUSE IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL ART FORM. IT MADE THE CONSUMER BEAUTIFUL. THE CONSUMER WAS THE STAR" - BARRY WHITE

"DISCO EXISTED BEFORE WE WERE ALL BORN AND WILL EXIST AFTERWARDS. IT IS A RITUAL - IT IS A CELEBRATION - AND IT IS THE SAME KIND OF MUSIC THAT WE CALL DISCO OR ROCK'N'ROLL OR A WHOLE LIST OF NAMES THAT WE CAN CALL IT. CALL IT WHAT YOU WILL, NOTHING WILL CHANGE THE FACT THAT CERTAIN KINDS OF MUSIC WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO CELEBRATE OR PARTY" - GRACE JONES

"DISCO WAS ALWAYS ABOUT PEOPLE ON THE DANCE FLOOR BEING THE STAR OF THE NIGHT" - SIMON DUNMORE

"WHEN THE CLUBS OPENED, YOU SAW THE LOOK ON PEOPLES FACES. THE SMILES, THE ENERGY THAT PEOPLE GAVE OFF. YOU WERE ALL THERE TO DANCE" - NICKY SIANO

WHEN WE WERE APPROACHED BY BEN TO BE A PART OF THE DISCOGRAPHY LESSONS, WE WERE HONOURED TO GET INVOLVED. NOT ONLY DID IT GIVE US A CHANCE TO REPAY HIM FOR THE EXCELLENT GUEST MIX HE PROVIDED FOR US BACK IN AUGUST, IT ALSO GAVE US AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE A PART OF THE BATTLE AGAINST MENTAL HEALTH.

DISCO MUSIC IS ABOUT UNITY AND INCLUSION, POSITIVITY AND ENERGY. WE GREW UP ON MAGICAL TALES FROM OUR PARENTS ABOUT GREAT DANCEFLOORS IN LONDON AND THE MUSIC THAT THEY PLAYED. THE REAL THING, LUTHER VANDROSS, MARVIN GAYE, EARTH WIND & FIRE. THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.

IT WAS A PLEASURE TO BE PART OF THE SERIES AND WE HOPE YOU ENJOY OUR 1 HOUR CLASSIC DISCO MIX. IT'S PACKED FULL OF POSITIVITY WITH RECORDS FROM JAMES BROWN, THE BORTHERS JOHNSON, JEAN CARN, CHAKA KHAN, MARVIN GAYE, TAMMY TERRELL, ARETHA FRANKLIN, CURTIS MAYFIELD, OTIS CLAY, LENNY WILLIAMS, SYLVESTER & MORE.

YOU CAN FIND OUR ENTIRE BACK CATALOGUE OF DISCO, INCLUDING A GREAT GUEST MIX SERIES ON SOUNDCLOUD!

BIG THANKS TO COLLECTIVE GROOVE FOR SUPPORTING OUR BATTLE IN MUSIC VS MENTAL HEALTH

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS DISCOGRAPHY LESSON AS MUCH AS WE DO :)
