Disco fever ended as quickly as it started
Disco here did not start out in dance clubs.
Mr Derek Joseph says that in the early 1970s, the dance style was more common at house parties than the Zouk clubs of its day.
"It was not always about flashy dance floors," he says.
"People would just be dancing together at house parties. No need for a fancy bar or even alcohol. They danced because they loved the music."
Even the popular disco attire, characterised by bell bottom pants and fancy sequins, was reserved only for special occasions.
Mr Joseph says: "It didn't matter what you wore, as long as you were having a good time."
Over time, the disco inferno engulfed the local dancing scene. Nightclubs all across the island started playing disco music.
Mr Raymond Chong says: "The main places to dance disco included Studio M, Copacabana and Goodwood Park. The queues were always long, and people could not wait to get into the club."
Both dancing champions say the dance style was such a hit that people would be dancing even at weddings or private functions.
But as quickly as it exploded, disco started fizzling out in the 1980s.
The soaring vocals and steady beats of disco made way for the thumping sounds of electronic music.
"By the 1990s, artists didn't make any more disco music. It was seldom played, replaced by other kinds of music that people liked," says Mr Chong.
But regardless of how long it has been, die-hard disco fans say the music will always survive.
Mr Joseph says: "It's the most honest and pure music out there. It allows you to express yourself and be creative. There will never be anything like disco."
