The Disco Revival?

Recommended Posts

Tama 181

We've been witnessing a somewhat disco revival period of pop music going into 2020, famously lead by Dua Lipa and her career is shaping up to be much bigger than it was before. What do you think of this genre revival? Or is there any revival at all? Is it just a one artist thing? If you have any recommendations of artists who are doing disco music right now but not really mainstream, would you like to put their music here? bey5

Hopefully not 

I can understand why you might not want it. I mean disco could sound very dated in 2020.

I’m for it! 

I'm also for it if it's done in a much sleeker form. Like I Feel Love by Donna Summer, that song should sound very dated but it still kind of sounding fresh today.

Hopefully more disco than what she's doing 

The direction that Dua is taking right now is mixed with post-disco/dance sound, something that Madonna or Kylie Minogue had done since a long time ago. I'm here for it though because her songs are really good. However, I feel like there wouldn't be any 'more disco' songs in mainstream/popular music of 2020 because disco could sound very dated if it's not done properly.

It was about time gaga3 I wish more singers would go through that route to be honest rip3 

Well, not every recording artists could pull off disco. I think the European singers have been far more friendly with disco/dance in their popular music (like Dua herself, sometimes I forget that she's not American). It's quite appalling, tbh, since disco once defined American music for quite a long time.

Well, I beg to differ. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Carly Rae Jepsen (I know she's Canadian) and so many others I can't remember worked with this style perfectly. I mean, the US had the 90s R&B revival so I think Disco could have a revival somehow. However, the main problem is that nowadays an Artist has more artistic freedom rather than chasing trends since the trends are really dead. It looks like Music Eras don't exist anymore ari9

I guess that's the double-edged sword of today's music scene, artistic freedom. But if the compositions are good, I would still appreciate them. bey3

Trends were also some kind of 'artistic freedom' when each of them first started, which then became mainstream and record companies made their artists do those styles/genres. I think record companies still do that to some degree. I think we will see some more of Billie Eilish-esque music from up and coming artists from all corners of the world. Whether they would break mainstream market or not, though, is a matter of fate. As of the 'disco revival', we'll see what happen. moo6

I'm totally up for it since I love Billie Eilish but I would really like to see what happens with the disco revival rav2

That's awesome! I'm really tired of the trap&B trend, so disco/dance (but not necessarily EDM) pop music would be more than welcomed for me. moo9

That's a really lovely song! laugh1

Oh I really like Weyes Blood, such a superb musician!

The good portion of 70s though, because I believe there were also funny stuff in that decade that don't need to come back in current year.

Of course. We don't need a revival of Slade, Mudd, Wizzard, The Wombles, Showaddywaddy etc. orangu1

I feel like 80s inspired synth pop has been a thing for 4-5 years now, and it’s definitely something Gaga has had elements of before, but I’d enjoy a LOT more disco!!!
