Disco: Electro Disco 1982 - 1988

By Fernand8 Fernand8
updated about 1 year ago

From Disco Electrostyled to Break Dance music. Some tracks can (only from a Hip Hop perspective) be classified as Hip Hop. Electro should dominate the track to be on this list. It is a short lived sub genre as 1982/83/84 were the peak years. New York Freestyle Disco continued with Electro influences. And Hip Hop (the Break Beat part) went on.

I am a generalist not a specialist. I make these lists to breakdown my collection and wantlist into (sub)genres. I constantly try to improve my lists so they are never complete. I am happy to incorporate suggestions, but please raise the bar.

  1. Klein & MBO* - De-Ja-Vu

    22 For Sale from $4.55

    1982. Essential as it combines Italo with Electro and also is Proto House.

  2. C-Bank - Get Wet

    20 For Sale from $3.35


  3. Shannon - Let The Music Play

    1983. By 1983 Electro with more melody, both Latin and Disco influences became Latin Freestyle or some call it (wrongly in my opinion) Latin Hip Hop. This gets close to that turn...
