============================================================================

synthesized disco releases imported out of Europe, usually Italy. Disco was still popular in many Europe countries in the early 80s as it had became a dirty word in America. Since house wasn't created yet, many Chicago DJs relied on European dance imports in addition to the post-disco/boogie records that were popular at the time.

time period is around 1982 to 1986
