We’re thrilled to bring you a new dance party for boogie funk, electro, and modern soul.
In the late ’70s, disco was red hot. Dance clubs around the world were the center of the movement and the bands, producers & labels were grossing incredible sums of money. As the ’80s approached, the “Disco Sucks” chant began to fracture this giant branch of the music industry almost overnight. But amongst the ashes of disco, new and interesting adaptations of club music would arise. Boogie-funk, electro and modern soul music sprang up in disparate corners of the US, Europe and beyond. Synthesizers, drum machines and more began to supplement disco’s big band arrangements and a transformation in club music occurred. Hence the post-disco era was born. We celebrate our passion for this sensational era in dance music with Night Moves, a post-disco odyssey to be hosted each month at Holocene with an array of Portland’s finest DJs.
What to expect: boogie, boogie and more boogie!!! On the floor and in the booth, this club is gonna be jamming some cosmic cuts you ain’t never heard interspersed with upbeat and timeless gems you wish you never forgot. Wet your whistle by checking out our up-and-coming boogie blog and don’t forget to make it out for this indelible night of dancing!
