Club Scenes: Nu Disco


This week we're taking a look at club scenes - and today it's Nu Disco.

Disco has been around since the early 1970s, but recently there has been a huge resurgence of interest in the genre and sub-genres including Nu, Cosmic, Italo and Psychedelic disco.

Club night Horse Meat Disco is a key part of the revival; from their weekly event in a south London pub, they've scored a residency at superclub Fabric and made appearances at the Glastonbury and Lovebox festivals.

Promoter / DJs Jim and James wanted an alternative night harking back to New York parties like The Loft and The Gallery - but adapted for a futuristic UK crowd.

According to their website, "musically it's a disco behemoth of classic, italo disco, oddities, punk funk".

We went to The Eagle in Vauxhall, London.

Produced by Sara Barman

Where to go: Horse Meat Disco is on every Sunday at The Eagle. Other club nights include Disco Bloodbath, Lasermagnetic / Tropicana and Say Yes. Hed Kandi has also added a nu-disco room to their latest Ibiza residency.

Key names: Hercules & Love Affair, DFA records, Prins Thomas, Cosmic originator Daniele Baldelli, Lindstrom, Aeroplane, Crazy P, Greg Wilson, Dimitri from Paris, Unabombers, Idjut Boys, Lowlife, Todd Terje.
