Boombox 9 Automatic Soul & Daytime Disco

Enjoy this 9th part of Boombox! ‘Daytime disco’ is a kind of laidback disco, dance music you can nod your head to and almost move physically to. The expression was first used by the band Poolside, I believe, to introduce their debut album ‘Pacific standard time’ in 2012. ‘Automatic soul’ is the title of the latest Late Night Tales episode by Tom Findlay (Groove Armada), which features (club) soul from the mid-eighties, like the song from Thelma Houston.

Thanks to DJ Supermarkt and Wonky Sensitive for the inspiration! I borrowed some of the songs they discovered. DJ Supermarkt (Marcus Liesenfeld) is the man behind the compilation album 'Too Slow To Disco volume 1', the first part of a series of late 1970s Westcoast yacht pop ('music you can almost dance to'),
