Indie Dance / Nu Disco
Nu Disco as a genre of dance music originated at the beginning of the 2000th in Italy, when Eurodance music, named Groove, branched away. The name Nu Disco appeared in 2002 in Great Britain and in 2008 it was officially recognized by the music world.
Music stores started to use this term for remixes of classic disco music and works of European musicians, inspired by the music of the 70-90th.
Appearance of this genre was caused by renewed interest of the listeners in disco music of the end of 70th and the beginning of 80th, Italo-disco of the 80th and Euro-disco of the 90th.
Thanks to the new modern technologies and new approach to sampling, these genres got fresh original sounding. The use in compositions of synthesized sounds, similar to live instruments, combined with the modern dance beats and basses, is the main stylistic pattern of Nu-Disco. The tracks abound in effects of Deep House, and the tempo has straight rhythm within 110-125 beats per minute.
The pioneer of this genre is duo Metro Area who reincarnated the music of the 70-80th. After becoming recognizable, Nu-Disco is considered to be a trend-setter. This genre became the most popular in Europe and Australia. In America, after being mixed with Dubstep and called Complextro, this genre has also found its listeners. It must be admitted that at the moment of its birth this genre had very few famous musicians and even now, despite widespread support from commercial sound-recording firms, Nu Disco is still underground music.
