Various - Nile Rodgers Presents Disco Inferno THE godfather of disco brings together his favourite tracks from the long-derided era of dance, and it’s perfect timing given the genre’s renaissance over the past few years, started by the live reformation of his band Chic and boosted by his collaborations with Daft Punk last year.

The three discs provide a comprehensive compilation of hits from the Seventies and Eighties, and while there are some lesser-known floor fillers too, a more interesting exercise would have seen the inclusion of more contemporary takes on disco.

That said, Rodgers’ choice of non-single versions of some of the era’s more chart-friendly hits help showcase the musicianship and influence these songs had, while the cheesier aspect of some takes a back seat.

His excellent and frenetic mixing ensures a non-stop party-ready wave of classics, the perfect lift for any summer party.

If you’re going to Bestival on the Isle Of Wight in September, then this album is essential listening before Chic’s headline slot.
