Too Slow To Disco Vol. 4

    After smooth detours into Soul covers, French Neo-Disco, modern Sunset Disco and Brazilian AOR, in 2022 DJ Supermarkt’s Too Slow to Disco series makes a joyous return to its original Westcoast AOR/Yacht roots. Celebrating the 10th TSTD compilation. Who would have thought….

    The Berlin curator releases a killer 4th edition of the original compilation art form, “Too Slow to Disco”, featuring forgotten and overseen gems from the mid 70s to the early 80s from a global world of smooth, brilliant lost and overproduced tracks from Finland via London and L.A. to Trinidad and beyond.

    The great ‘un-vanisher’ of lost lazy classics, DJ Supermarkt once again unearthed some incredible music that labels, publishers (in many cases also those, who actually own the rights to those tracks…) and streaming services have often long overlooked. You’re welcome, world!

    Too Slow To Disco - Volume 2 - 2022 Repress

      It took us one year to finally come back with VOLUME 2 of TOO SLOW TO DISCO. This time we dug even deeper into the sundrenched, relaxed-funky, smooth and megalomaniac Westcoast-sound of the late 70s / early 80s: from Singer/Songwriter-Funk, Yacht-Pop, Blue Eyed Soul to AOR-Disco. Tracks somewhere between delusion of grandeur and a mountain of Soul. Again there are "Hall of Fame“ honored Megabands like Hall & Oates or Michael Nesmith (from The Monkees) placed next to a completely lost troubled genius like Jimmy Gray Hall, who only released three promo 7 inches in his short life, that we just rediscovered. The relevance of this sound for todays music is easy to hear: in the latest albums by Father John Misty, BC Camplight, Andrew Combs, Liam Hayes, Silk Rhodes, the complete soundtrack of „Guardians of the Galaxy“ and even in the cocky sound of Austrian youngstersʼ Bilderbuch.

      Too Slow To Disco - Volume 1 - 2022 Repress

        "SOFT ROCK, VANILLA FUNK, YACHT ROCK, there’s different names for the same thing. In the taste-conscious music world for years now people have laughed at the L.A.-sound from this era with its super-smooth, over-lavish, luxury-laden excesses. Yet this sound is everywhere these days, echoing down the years, influencing the likes of Midlake, Haim, Gonzales, John Grant, Ariel Pink, out to the more discofied sounds of Chromeo, Breakbot, and Todd Terje. And what was Daft Punk’s „Random Access

        Memories“, if not an album entirely dedicated to late 70s L.A.?Our friends at the label ‚How Do You Are’ unearthed some of the lesser-known but still beautiful mood music of this period, by people who were often still starting out, or would write their biggest hits years later, but who surfed the West Coast wave penning some total gems. With this first volume of TOO SLOW TO DISCO they want to share some of the great acts and songs that made the mid-late 70s California scene so awesome. Even though this is not officially a CITY SLANG release, we helped the guys who curated this gem. Because we love the stories behind the music and we love the chills these tunes send down our spine."
