    Default nu disco - opinions?

    Hi guys,

    I've been discussing with a fellow dj about the merits of nu disco, what does everyone think?

    also here is some disco and deep house for your listening pleasure https://soundcloud.com/djchrisdafunk/cant-hold-back

    I play it some, basically on the principle that if it sounds good and I like it there must be others that will also want to hear it.

    There's a whole ton of different clubs and nights out there. If you're playing a dubstep night or if the club is known for techno then nu-disco isn't what you want to play. However there's ton's of clubs out there where nu-disco works well.

    It fits well in my deep house sets where I might want a different sound and type of beat structure. Again this largely depends on the song and nu-disco is a very broad category.

    I mix it in with deep house/house. If it's a bit slower I'll speed it up within reason. Though some of it's already pretty similar in bpm.

    That is a mighty fine mix, especially the end.

    It's my favorite genre of house music ever since I first laid my ears on Daft Punk's Discovery.

    I've been posting my favorite songs related to the genre here: http://www.discofilter.com/

    If anyone else can recommend nu-disco music blogs, I'd be happy to check 'em out!

    I'm not really sure I understand what constitutes this genre. Nonetheless I recently realized how much awesome music is categorized under "Indie Dance / Nu Disco" at Beatport. Was quite a revelation. Especially since I now like to play all my Deep/Tech House stuff at 118bpm rather than 125 like before.
