"BOOGIE" POPULAR DANCE THEME + TITLE

Love is the all time most popular Disco & Dance theme. Dance is
also a popular theme, as is Disco and even "Boogie". Here are a
few heard almost daily on USA Dance Mix: "Boogie  Nights" Heat-
wave, "Boogie  Fever" The Sylvers, "Boogie Oogie Oogie" A Taste
Of Honey, "Boogie  Wonderland" Earth, Wind & Fire, "Boogie With
Me" Poussez, "Everybody  Get Up  And  Boogie" Freddie James. Of
those  surely A Taste Of Honey would be at the top  considering
that track put the "O" in Disco. Personal fav's would be  Heat-
wave and  teenager  Freddie James. However, Poussez  made a big
debut by showing that the boundaries for Disco music can be ex-
spanded and are never  ending. A lot of FUNK is in most Disco &
Dance  songs when BOOGIE is a theme. That's a great  thing! Who
could ever possibly get funky  without  breaking into a boogie?



RADIO EDITS CAN BE A CHALLENGE
Very few Dance  songs justify  being 6 or 7 minutes  long. Most
have lots of padding (beats or thumps) at the beginning and the
end. It can  be a challenge for  USA Dance Mix  to  edit  those
tracks  down to a more "radio friendly" 3 1/2 or 4 minutes. But
we do it. Often, a few weeks  later the artist  has  made their
own radio edit and cut their track right where we did. 3 1/2 is
the ideal  length (just enough to keep the listener happy). Too
much of a good thing can be a bad thing in Dance music. Except-
ional  songs though  can be 4 minutes or longer. The days of 7-
14 minute  Dance  tracks have long vanished. Dance music lovers
don't need a lot of "fluff". They just  want the  artist to get
to the point or meat of their release and nothing more.////////




THE STATION HAD FEW RECORDS
I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for a couple years after  high
school. At one point the city got a new FM Dance station (about
1977). At that time Dance radio played  mostly club tracks that
were usually 8 or more minutes long. Well, the station only had
about 10 Disco & Dance records (and some of those  weren't  too
good). About every 90 minutes they  would  simply  repeat them.
Needless to say, the station  lasted only a few  months  before
switching  formats. Jacksonville was just not  ready for a full
time  Dance  station  at  that  time (or at least one that only
played 10 records). Is there a moral  here? Maybe. You may  not
have the greatest or the best, but be happy with  what  you  do
have (it's better than nothing)......perhaps that's it.////////



"THAT 70'S SHOW" DEBUTS

USA Dance Mix  pioneered the  new  "40 Years Of Dance"  format.
That means Disco & Dance songs from 1976 (about 25 in our play-
list) will  now "drop" off the station. Well, not really. We've
decided  to give them  their own show on Sunday night. At first
we planned to only feature songs that were  outside our 40 year
span on THAT 70'S SHOW. But the title  itself has shown us that
we should  include the entire 70's (not just 1975-76, but 1977-
1979). The later were some very  good  years  for Disco & Dance
music as it slowly  took  over  Top-40 radio. We're all excited
about  our new  show and with 21 hours of retro  music ready to
fit into just 3 hours, it will  always have a FRESH sound to it
every week. Instead of the same  tracks  heard  over  and over.
Chic's "Good Times" may be played in week 1 and then not  again
till  week 4. There  will be lots of  variety........DON'T MISS
IT! If you like 70's Dance music  or  lived  through it, you'll
really enjoy THAT 70'S SHOW!///////////////////////////////////



NU DISCO, NEW DISCO OR WHAT?

Recent tracks that have that retro  Disco  sound  some  like to
call Nu Disco or New Disco. Why not just Disco? When  you  make
it NEW or NU it sounds like the "old" Disco  went  away or died
in a  stadium  in Cincinnati. But it never did! 1979  may  have
been the banner year for Disco, but 1980 was not the end. Disco
tracks  have  been  continuous for over 40 years  now. Although
some years were better than others. During the many fads (which
often  lasted  years  themselves and overlapped) Disco ventured
into House, Trance, Punk, Industrial, Techno, Electronic, Elec-
tro, etc. Many, such as Techno  stuck  around  for  years. Some
might say Techno and to some extent the others are  still  here
today (just not in the driver's seat). If it's the  Disco sound
it should  be  called  DISCO! No need for New or Nu or this and
that.//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////




REMIXES CAN'T FIX A WEAK TRACK
Many times a track has 10 or more remixes available. It doesn't
matter how many remixes a song has, you can't remix a weak tune
into a good one. Often, a release comes out that is ok but just
not right, then a few weeks or even  months  later  the "right"
remix is found. I call those half-baked  tracks. Only  when the
"best"  remix  arrives is the song done. Most songs don't  even
need a  remix. The orginal mix  presents the artist's  original
idea  and intent. Very rarely is a remix  needed. But, they  do
happen, and can open the door to a wider  audience if they  are
just  slightly  different from the original. Maybe  that's  the
problem. Remixes just  don't do a whole lot for a song. They do
a little, and more often than not that's not enough (to justify
their existence).//////////////////////////////////////////////




DANCE MUSIC HAS PERIODS OF TRANSITION

In life, politics and about  everything else there are  periods
of  transition. Dance is no exception. Certain songs  don't fit
in the mold of what is currently promoted. Some are  more  like
bridges  into  another  area. Such was  the case  in  2007 when
"Dancin" from Erick Morillo's (A Little More Vocal remix - You-
Tube) hit  the  charts. THAT  track  signled the  return of the
Disco sound to Dance muxic. Others  shortly  followed and we've
been  on this trip ever since. Times do change and what was HOT
two months or weeks ago can suddenly fade from view. Transition
is  a way of life, love it or hate it, it's best to keep  your-
self prepared  for what lies ahead. The unknown is not always a
bad thing and often a better road to follow or Dance upon./////
