Giorgio Moroder brought a very European aesthetic to black American dance grooves. Although Italian by upbringing, Moroder did most of his work in Munich and the influence of Düsseldorf’s Kraftwerk can be heard in his work for Donna Summer, which includes two of the ultimate disco anthems, “I Feel Love” and “Love to Love You Baby.” This was motorik music: spacious, trippy, ever-lasting, far removed from the relentless bounce of most disco.

Broussard, Egyptian Lover was a rapper, DJ, and producer who was hugely influenced by the New York electro scene, as well as by the electro-funk of Zapp. This was flat-out party music: not afraid to be a little corny, and dynamite on the dancefloor. Although he began associating with Uncle Jamm’s Army and Radio Crew, it was as a solo artist that he made his impact. “Egypt Egypt” was an LA anthem in 1984, and On the Nile was one of the first hip-hop albums to come out of the left coast....

In her 2015 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, Sadier discussed the influence of the Smiths, forming Stereolab, their “disastrous” relationship with the French music press, and more. For many young indie music fans making their way through the “alternative” section of their local record store in the mid-’90s, it was the music of Stereolab, and in particular the voice of chanteuse Lætitia Sadier, that provided a pre-Internet window into the worlds of French New Wave, German krautrock and...

James Mtume’s discography is as peerless as it gets. From crafting iconic LPs with Miles Davis, to sought-after spiritual jazz, Mtume’s jazz chops are undeniable. But it was Mtume’s transition from jazz pioneer to R&B master in his own group Mtume, that really set him apart from his peers.
