Disco was born when elements of soul, funk, Latin and early electronic music came together, and our Nu Disco artists reflect this variety of influences in the range of music included. Although all the producers in the Traxsource Top 100 Nu Disco Artists of 2018 chart make music rooted in the original 1970s disco sound, this is a genre that encompasses Indie-Dance, Re-Edits and Balearic too. Soaring strings, soulful vocals, 70s samples married to contemporary production and of course that unmistakable 4/4 pulse: this chart was an absolute joy to compile.
