Also, he was a member of MFSB in Philadelphia International Records. This was a band run by Kenneth Gamble and Leon A. Huff as a 30 members group. This is where Earl Young created the history. He arranged a ballad song “The Love Lost” faster, and added a new pattern. This is how the Disco groove was created.
SInce the beginning, Disco was producer centered music. Not only Disco created influencial DJs, but also great producers; Baker-Harris-Young from Philadelphia, Ashford & Simpson from New York, and Van McCoy. Disco gave a great chance for singer from different genres. Gloria Gaynor was one of them. In 1978, her song “I Will SUrvive” became the anthem for LGBT Movement. Also her song “Never Can Say Goodbye” became the number 1 song for October in 1974.
