Liverpool Disco Festival no doubt stands at the forefront of this genre dedication, the club-meets-fest event is now readying itself for its fourth instalment, with one of its biggest line ups to date. In preparation, we've hand selected five acts that we think you should make time for this Easter bank holiday weekend.
Widely known as one of house music's true greats, Derrick Carter is a master of his craft and an advocate for all things underground. He began DJing at the age of nine, playing disco records at family reunions, and he often revisits his roots, playing special sets across the UK in the likes of Sub Club and XOYO, digging in deep to his collection of classic grooves and alluring funk.
It's an opportunity to see one of the scene's most respected selectors take a trip down memory lane with retro cuts and soul gems at Camp and Furnace's main room.
Disco originals are at the heart of the genre's history and legacy, but edits hold a very special place as well. The Reflex holds the same notoriety as the likes of Greg Wilson, Dimitri From Paris and Late Nite Tuff Guy when it comes to reworks, putting a modern spin on timeless records and making them dancefloor ready.
A firm favourite the LDF and Southport Weekender crowds, Rahaan has been educating dance music lovers since the 80s. Cutting his teeth at house and loft parties in Chicago, he's now respected as a DJ and a producer, bringing his soulful house sounds and mesmerising disco to quality parties across the globe.
You only need to take a look at the video above from his closing set to understand how much the Disco Fest attendees love this guy.
The brains behind The Million Dollar Orchestra, and one of the country's most prolific DJs, Al Kent is Glasgow's very own disco afficianado. Having spent his childhood collecting records with his dad, it's no surprise that he grew up to be a natural digger, with an ear for the best underground soul and disco.
On Friday 30th March, as part of LDF4, Al will present a masterclass in studio methodology, focussing on creating edits - an unmissable opporutinity for every self respecting disco fan. The party will be rounded off by LDF fave Natasha Kitty Kat, as well as pizza and cocktails.
One of the genre's pioneers, John Morales grew up in the Bronx and was a key player in NYC's burgeoning disco scene in the mid 70s, regularly DJing at some of the city's best known spots including Stardust Ballroom and the infamous Studio 54.
This year, Liverpool Disco Festival have brought him to 24 Kitchen Street for their much loved Sunday Session. Easter bank holiday Monday falls on the day after, so with lovely disco vibes expected all day and into the club after dark, disco lovers can send off LDF4 with this massive finale.
