High Energy - Disco on Amphetamines

55 min

At the end of the 1970s Disco was dead, deemed too mainstream and overexploited. But DJs and dancefloors still needed records and so the High Energy style was born. With its faster rhythms and stripped-back synthesiser sound, High Energy took gay clubs by storm before taking over the charts in the 1980s. The story of an international musical genre coming from San Francisco, London, Montreal and Munich.
