Boombox VIII Troubled Disco & Electronic Soul

I’m a huge fan of disco music, but what kind of disco do you play when your life seems to go downhill? Most of the dance songs are about having fun, feeling good and making love. That's why I put together some dark (post) disco tracks, personal favourites and a few brand new tracks that will surely make you feel good, even when you're feeling as lucky as Kylie Minogue ;-) Don't worry about the lyrics, the songs have rays of hope as well, because of the uplifting beats and empathic words. The music makes you dance the heartache away, or something like that...

The woman on the left is the multi-talented Ronika, who just released her great debut album 'Selectadisc:

“She heavily mines eighties freestyle, disco-boogie and pop (and rocks a look that combines glam and dishevelment in a perfect balance evoking early, new wave Madonna), but there’s an immediacy and force of personality to her songwriting – and a club-honed directness to her production – that blows all that aside. Despite being named after a legendary record shop in her hometown of Nottingham, ‘Selectadisc’ is not “record collector pop”, it’s the real deal. “ (Quote: Fact)
