There's a non-ironic celebration of disco that's taking place in nightclubs around the world. Yes disco, yes 2010 -- and you'll find London-based DJ foursome Horse Meat Disco leading the nocturnal gallop.

With lauded club residencies in London, Lisbon, and Berlin, Horse Meat Disco express a love for more than thirty years of music (beyond the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.) They explore certain resonating sounds and feelings of the disco era, a welcomed mix of the fresh and nostalgic, that do an excellent job at moving dancefloors.

If this sounds good to you, so will their newest DJ mix compilation, Horse Meat Disco II, out now on Strut Records. It's a wonderful hour of music that ranges from soaring anthems to instrumental party grooves. The group's James Hillard and Jim Stanton will be DJing tonight at Silver Lake’s Eagle LA. [Flyer] (Forget about those itchy afro wigs, thrift shop bell-bottoms, and sequins by the hundreds. Save that for when you’re force-fed “YMCA” at your hilarious co-worker's disco-themed birthday party.)

[Update: Horse Meat Disco are DJing tonight and not Saturday.]
