"Some lucky people hear music in colours. Talk about the experience upgrade, those synesthesiacs really trip it hard," says DJ Supermarkt. "Well, we’ve always felt that Too Slow To Disco also has a definite musical palette (even if you don’t have the super powers). So turn off the news, kick off your shoes and stick on the tunes. And let’s remember the good times, when the most orange thing about America was the California sunshine...

"This time I present to you a colourful space trip, which brings you the best cosmic and psychedelic gems from the 1970s and 1980s," says Martijn Soetens, the man behind the superb Jeff Porcaro Collection and West Coast Sounds of the Netherlands series. "I dug as deep as possible in the crates and searched for all kinds of genres: Pop, Rock, Soul, Folk, Funk, Jazz, New-Age, Fusion and AOR. Between the tracks I added some progressive sounds and space quotes.

Many thanks to Paul Hillery for his latest exclusive mix for AOR Disco, drawn from the deep vaults of his collection of 1970s Westcoast and folk rock rarities.

"Here is Volume 6 of my all vinyl labor of love, focused on the unheralded and unknown treasures of the 1970s and 1980s," says Jeffrey Boozer. "This volume of the Smoothday series plays loose with genre and tempo over all, and is inspired by my gigs at Oakland's cozy and record geek heavy Bar 355.

In 2015 we were proud to premiere this outstanding Kenny Dickenson remix of Ned Doheny's 1979 classic, and now we're thrilled that it's getting a 12" vinyl release from elite reissue label Be With Records, who released the original version a few months back and brought Doheny over for a most memorable and triumphant UK tour.  Also, the 12" features a cover by AOR Disco contributor Pete Fowler from psychedelic yacht rock legends Seahawks.

dj ShmeeJay returns with his latest top-notch seasonal mix for AOR Disco, featuring the best reworks of rock and pop from the '70s and '80s. As always he blends much-loved edits from a few years back, such as Jimi Bazzouka's Wings remix, with brand new ones like The Starkiller's revamp of a Neil Young classic.

It great to welcome Robert E Lee back to AOR Disco. Based in Sheffield, England - "but with my heart set on Haight Ashbury '67, Laurel Canyon '72, Baia degli Angeli '78 and Ibiza '87" - Lee contributed one of the earliest mixes when the site began in 2009 and we've featured a number of his edits over the years too (we'll be re-uploading his cheeky

Gilbert O'Sullivan revamp soon). Lee's latest mix features the mellow, acoustic side of Black Sabbath.

The first mix in a new series by Rose Field featuring the best modern day tracks which continue the smooth traditions of the golden age of '70s and '80s yacht rock and soul.


Many thanks to Mark 'Good Vibes' Taylor for his latest ultra-classy exclusive for AOR Disco, featuring rare Westcoast and wolf rock classics from the 1970s.
