No disco could have survived without hits by Kool & the Gang. The former high-school band from New Jersey sold more than 70 million records with its irresistible funk-soul sound. A sound that’s ideal not only for party music: listen carefully and you’ll be surprised at how clever the song-writing is and how varied the arrangements. «Disco» has also shaped the career of Dabu Fantastic, who came to prominence on the back of albums like «Agglo Disco», «Discochugle» and «Disco Titanic». Stylistically, the band from the Zurich Oberland is also extremely versatile. Their catchy hit «Angelina» demonstrates just one nuance of their broad musical range.
