The explosion in imported music in the 1970s led to the disco revolution, and it’s a style of music which is still greatly revered today, and perfect for any party.

 

What many people don’t realise is that “Motown” is actually the name of a record company, formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1959. The unique blend of music became known as “The Motown Sound”, and eventually became recognised as a genre all of its own. The sound which contributed to the disco revolution was heavily wired into funk, another genre which originated in the mid 1960s, with African-American influences creating new rhythms combining soul, jazz and R&B.

The introduction of funk, soul and Motown bands into the United Kingdom came at a similar time to the large wave of immigration in the 1960s and 1970s, at a time when rock and roll was diminishing and the disco revolution had come to town. Ever since, the groovy sounds have been the staple of a good party and the feel-good factor of music.
