Dream Weapons present: CITY LIGHTS C90

For as long as I can recall I’ve loved those gorgeous string arrangements, the lighthearted playful sensuality, the synths and the grooves of Disco. Yet I never felt like had the overview or knowledge to compile a mix. But now I went along and did it anyway. During the years these 19 tracks were recorded: from 1975 to 1982: Disco was a global phenomena. So there’s literally a whole world of largely unheard gems out there to discover. Locating different takes from different scenes is most definitely part of the charm. Some funky, jazzy and organic takes, while others goes hard on the synths and drum machines. But always peppy, fun and... life-affirming -Moahaha
