Topaz Radio Disco pays tribute to a historic club in the Hungarian capital. DJ since 1977, SzaboZe has recreated there the psychedelic atmosphere of the radios of the 70s. Fans will appreciate it.
The very neat orchestrations, based on violins or brass instruments, the binary rhythm at 120 BPM, the snaps of fingers or hands to give the measure… Disco is a very recognizable musical style, a mix of soul, pop, and funk, and which is almost timeless nowadays. Born in some discos in Brooklyn, Harlem, and the Bronx in the 70s, it conquered the planet until the early 80s but has remained a must for millions of fans.
DJ and radio host and programmer since the glorious disco era, SzaboZe, who lives in Budapest, wanted to recreate this unique musical atmosphere, drawing on an impressive collection of records built up over more than four decades. He has done so thanks to Shoutcast, on Topaz Disco Radio, thus paying tribute to the Topaz Disco Club, a historical discotheque that opened in 1977 in Budapest.
So he turned it into a web radio that can be listened to from evening to morning without ever feeling bored by having this festive and positive music in your ears. “The retro disco format is very popular in the world today,” he says.
Throughout the day, DJ and programmer follow one another on the air without ever repeating a single track, which proves the richness of the disco repertoire. “You have to never give up, work on your programming all the time, do the marketing work, be persevering, believe in it, and surround yourself with like-minded people. It’s also very important to define your target audience; if you want to reach everyone, you end up reaching no one,” he says in conclusion. A program to be discovered without delay on the station’s official website.
