Disco is a genre that originated out of night clubs in the United sates during the 1970’s. The term disco emerged out of the French word, discotheque, which means library of phonograph records. Disco was a popular genre in the gay community especially but also in African American and latino communities. Some of the first disco-like clubs arose in New York private parties. This genre was made up of a steady four-on-the-floor beat.
