Firstly, thanks for the great response to the Vince Aletti download we posted a few days ago. We've had hundreds of downloads for it already. If you still haven't checked it out, feel free to download it here >
The Disco Files is the definitive chronicle of disco. It's the collected writing of Vince Aletti, who partied his way through seventies New York, but somehow managed to sober up each week and write about it all. The book collects Vince's magazine articles for Rolling Stone, Village Voice and After Dark, as well as more than 200 of his weekly columns for Record World. In these he dishes the dirt on the scene, discussing the clubs, the DJs and the emerging disco industry. Not only that but he includes four club charts - from DJs including Walter Gibbons, Larry Levan, Nicky Siano and Richie Rivera - and a disco top 20 every week, as well as reviewing every disco record worth knowing about. That makes nearly 900 charts and 2,000 record reviews, gadzooks!
We're nearing completion of The Disco Files book and we're now taking advance orders for it. If you pre-order from our site, you get a £20 discount on the cover price as well as receiving an exclusive, limited-edition, disco mix from Matthew & Jolyon. The mix is their modern take on an album, Steppin' Out, that Vince Aletti put together with Richie Rivera in the late 1970s.
