Beats | D-I-S-C-O
Every Friday, our Music Ed Vicky James rounds up the hottest artists, releases and music news of the week.
The rumours are true… 5ive at 5 is a thing. Each Friday at boohoo HQ, we count down to the weekend with the ultimate megamix from our guilty 90s boyband pleasure.
But this week, I’m taking you back even further, celebrating the launch of our new campaign with the ultimate disco classics that will make your mum feel like she’s 21 again.
My mum brought me up on a diet of Candi Staton, Diana Ross and The Supremes; preferring up-beat disco to my dad’s soul, blues and folk rock. So this week’s We’re Loving is also dedicated to her – no-one else belts out Young Hearts Run Free like you…
Sister Sledge - We Are Family
We've re-recorded this for our brand new xmas ad (you can see it here), so this one had to be top of my list.
Chic - Le Freak
Nile Rodgers has had something of a renaissance recently, with unmissable sets at Glasto and Bestival over the past couple of years. This one's an all-round crowd pleaser that your 'rents will remember too.
Earth, Wind & Fire - September
A personal fave, I remember running onto the dancefloor at my first boohoo xmas party when this came on. Come on, get up off your feet...
Michael Jackson - Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough
The undisputed King of the Pop, no-one can resist a good MJ tune to get them in the party mood. Start practicing your moonwalk now.
Evelyn "Champagne" King - Love Comedown
Taking it a little downtempo at no.5, Love Comedown is an easy lsitener you may have heard remixed by Bicep back in 2011.
