DEFINITION

DEFINITION


Pouvant tre considr comme faisant partie de lElectro Dance Musique (EDM, ou musique lectronique prvue pour danser), le Nu Disco associe la musique disco des annes 70s 80s aux gros synthtiseurs du 21e sicle.

Il s'agit donc du rsultat de lutilisation des technologies de production modernes sur des samples de disco, et au sens plus large sur des samples de styles populaires des annes 60s 80s (disco, swing, twist, pop).


As well considered part of the Electro Dance Music familly (EDM, i.e. electronic music made for dancing), Nu Disco combines disco music from the 70s - 80s with "big" synthesizers from the 21st century.

In the end, this is the result of the use of modern production technologies on disco samples, and more broadly on samples from several popular styles of the 60s to 80s (disco, swing, twist, pop).


STRUCTURE GENERALE

GENERAL STRUCTURE


Les motifs rythmiques des basses et des accords d'accompagnements sont emprunts au funk (guitares funk). Tandis que les mlodies conservent gnralement l'allure simple, faiblement syncopes de celles du disco d'antant.


The rhythmic patterns of the bass line and the chords accompaniment are borrowed from funk (funk guitars). While melodies usually keep the simple and slightly syncopated pace from those of yesterday's disco.


PROVENANCE

ORIGIN


Ce genre est apparu en 2002 en raison dun relent dintrt pour le disco des annes 70s et 80s.

Cest d'ailleurs par souci de fidlit aux titres de l'ancienne gnration disco qu'il voit bourgeonner en son sein bien moins de compositions originales que de remix*, re-edits*, ou encore re-rubs*. Ces derniers vont alors piocher leurs chantillons (samples, i.e. courts extraits) dans la discographie de nos pres.

Sans compter que les compositions originales utilisent trs souvent galement de nombreux samples de disco classique.


This type appeared in 2002 due to a whiff of interest in the disco 70s and 80s.

This is also for the sake of fidelity to the securities of the older generation that sees budding disco in it much less than original compositions * remix, re-edits, * or * re-rubs. The latter will then draw their samples (samples, ie short excerpts) in the discography of our fathers.

Besides original compositions often use also many samples of classic disco.

SOUS-GENRES

SUBGENRES


- La Disco House : principal courant du Nu disco (cf. dfinition). On note nanmoins deux courant de productions diffrents :
o L'un proche de l'Electro House par son tempo 128 bpm et ses sonorits plus abrasives,
o L'autre plus proche du Synthpop, plus lent et plus calme promouvant les sons plus acoustiques.

- L' Electro swing : style n peu avant 2010. Cest la musique hybride qui allie le swing d'antan aux musiques lectroniques actuelles, de la mme manire que la Disco House le fait avec le disco : des loops*, des samples*, des melodies ou bien l'atmosphre globale sont repris dartistes des annes 1960s 1980s comme Django Reinherdt, Cab Calloway ou Benny Goodman pour crer de nouveaux sons voire mme de la musique de club. Il n'y a bien entendu pas de grand rapport stylistique entre le swing et le disco leur permettant de figurer ensemble au sein d'un mme genre, mais ils sont bien lis par leurs techniques de production similaires et l'poque dans laquelle ils vont chercher leurs samples.

- Le Synthpop : genre apparu paralllement la rvolution du "tout lectronique" de la Techno, la fin des annes 1980s. Il s'agit ni plus ni moins de la chanson pop classique accompagne d'une profusion d'accords de synthtiseurs. Les groupes de rock se sont galement accaprs ce genre pour l'utiliser foison au sein de ce aue l'on appelle l'alternative rock. On peut citer des groupes tels que Depeche Mode ou A-ha l'origine de la popularisation de ces sonorits, rappelant fortement celles du disco.

- L' Electroclash : le peu de cohrence entre les diffrents artistes censs appartenir ce genre lectroacoustique laisse penser que l'electroclash est plus une tiquette journalistique et un coup marketing qu'une relle subdivision de la musique lectronique. Nous le faisons tout de mme figurer ici par souci d'exhaustivit.


- Disco House: mainstream Nu disco (see definition). Nevertheless, two different current productions are noted:
o close to the Electro House by its tempo to 128 bpm and more abrasive sounds,
o The other nearest Synthpop, slower and quieter promoting more acoustic sounds.

- Electro swing style born shortly before 2010 This is the musical hybrid that combines the swing of yesteryear to current electronic music, in the same way that the House does with Disco Disco : * loops, samples*, melodies or the overall atmosphere of artists from 1960s to 1980s are listed as Django Reinherdt, Cab Calloway and Benny Goodman to create new sounds and even club music. There is of course no great stylistic relationship between swing and disco allows them to appear together in the same genus, but they are bound by their similar production techniques and the time in which they will collect their samples.

- Synthpop: genre emerged in parallel with the revolution of the "all electronic" techno, in the late 1980s. This is nothing short of classic pop song accompanied by a profusion agreements synthesizers. Rock bands have also accaprs like this to use in abundance in this aue-called alternative rock. Include groups such as Depeche Mode and A-ha led to the popularization of these sounds, strongly reminiscent of those disco.

- "Electroclash": the lack of consistency between the various supposed to belong to such electro artists suggests that electroclash is a journalistic etiquette and a marketing ploy than an actual subdivision of electronic music . We do still included it here for completeness.
