Sifting through the crates with the DJ team...

Let's not beat around the bush here - Horse Meat Disco are some of the best to ever do it.

Whether that's on their long-running Rinse FM shows or live in the flesh, the DJ team smash it every single time, matching supreme technical skills to their crate-digging desires.

Billed as 'the queer party for everyone' Horse Meat Disco are implicitly connected to disco's roots of empowerment within LGBT+ culture, but they take this message out into the world.

Set to play Brixton Disco Festival on April 27th, Horse Meat Disco sat down with Clash to unveil some lesser heard disco gems...

Coffee - 'Casanova'

Back in my student days this was never not on my walkman weather walking to class or to the club it never failed to get me in the mood. Pure disco class.

Gloria Gaynor - 'Can’t Fight The Feelin'

The queen of disco at her most sumptuous and swishy. A sleaze anthem if ever I’ve heard one!

- - -

Frisky - 'Burn Me Up (With Your Love)'

Awesome mid tempo disco boogie would not be out of place at the roller disco or strutting the streets.

- - -

Deodato - 'Keep It In The Family'

An upbeat effervescent number about a secret love… and not incest!

- - -

Sylvester - 'Down, Down, Down'

An epic barn stormer of a song as only Sylvester can deliver. Originally the B side to the classic 'Over And Over'.

- - -

Diana Ross - 'That's How You Start Over'

An underrated but no less amazing Diana Ross number from a later album from The Boss. Can’t imagine not having Miss Ross on hand to get me in the mood.

- - -

Minako Yoshida - 'Lovin’ Mighty Fire'

I just love how groovy this one is. From Japan’s Minako Yoshida it moves between different tempos and grooves effortlessly.
