*According to a blog, V is for Vintage, blogger Julie writes, Disco music began in the late 60s/early 70s in NYC …. but the first signs of Disco began in 1942 – La Discotheque, a basement nightclub with only one turntable opens in Paris. The term ‘discotheque’ is used in Europe to describe clubs where there is no live music played.

Whiskey A-Go-Go in Paris 1953 DJ Regine uses two turntables with no breaks between the music. There is a dance-floor, coloured lights and no juke-box.

In New York, By 1970, DJ David Mancuso and his Loft parties begin in New York, becoming a foreunner of many more private clubs to come. His parties are members-only affairs at his home. The rest is Disco History!
