Long awaited debut album of Martin Brodin. He follow the great tradition of Scandinavian Nu-Disco with his own twist. After years devoted to collecting music and running labels, Malmoe based Martin Brodin presents his debut album. The MB Disco boss has created an album that is his take on disco and the roots of dance music. Martin presents an album of modern disco that is informed by classic production values and contemporary grooves. Unlike the glut of re-edits and nu-disco by numbers, this album features gorgeous melodies and sumptuous instrumentation. Martin shows that proper modern disco is about much more than a loop, creating classy tracks that will stand the test of time.
The LP stems from a pivotal change in musical direction in 2010, which saw him swap deep house and tech grooves for all things disco. After spending a long time listening to his extensive record collection and getting inspired by the disco sounds within, he set up MB Disco.

MB Disco also released updates of classics by Newcleus, Giorgio Moroder and worked with Leroy Burgess. This LP is the natural progression, featuring all types of disco inspired grooves. In a past musical life, Martin ran celebrated deep house imprint Deeplay Music, and its techier sister, Deeplay Soultec, as well as releasing music for labels like Buzzinâ Fly and Mood Music.
