Dance-punk (also known as disco-punk or punk-funk) is a music genre that emerged in the late 1970s, and is closely associated with the post-punk and No Wave movements.[1]

Predecessors

Many groups in the post-punk era adopted a more rhythmic tempo, conducive to dancing. These bands were influenced by disco, funk, and other dance music popular at the time as well as being anticipated by some of the 1970s work of David Bowie,[2] Brian Eno, and Iggy Pop, and some recordings by the German groups referred to as Krautrock. Groups of influence from the 1980s included Public Image Ltd.,[3][4] Gang of Four,[1][4][5] New Order,[6] Killing Joke,[7] The Cure,[8] and Siouxsie and the Banshees.[9] New York City dance-punk included Material,[10] James Chance and the Contortions,[1] Cristina Monet, ESG, and Liquid Liquid.[11] German punk singer Nina Hagen had an underground dance hit in 1983 with "New York / N.Y.", which mixed her searing punk (and opera) vocals with disco beats.[1]

Contemporary dance-punk

Dance-punk was revived among some bands of the garage rock/post-punk revival in the early years of the new millennium, particularly among New York acts such as LCD Soundsystem (and their label, DFA Records in general), Clinic, Death From Above 1979, Liars, The Rapture and Radio 4, joined by dance-oriented acts who adopted rock sounds such as Out Hud.[12], or Californian acts like !!!. In Britain the combination of indie with dance-punk was dubbed new rave in publicity for Klaxons and the term was picked up and applied by the NME to bands[13] including Trash Fashion,[14] New Young Pony Club,[15] Hadouken!, Late of the Pier, Test Icicles,[16] and Shitdisco[13] forming a scene with a similar visual aesthetic to earlier rave music.[13][17]
