Sociology of music.

Sociology of disco and house music

From a sociological point of view, there is little difference between house and disco. Both genres cross the boundaries of race, gender [clearly not being homophobic as rap and reggae is] and class. Both genres are intended to dance to so they address the body rather than the mind, were intended to be played in discotheques, later called clubs. Both genres use the turntable as musical instrument. Both genres are producers' genres, largely ignoring the "cult of personality" marketing techniques of mainstream music.
