Horse Meat Disco is a byword for Sunday night London bacchanalia which accidentally resuscitated the original dance music genre onto the world stage. The four-strong DJ collective of Luke Howard, Severino Panzetta, James Hillard and Jim Stanton began their disco shenanigans on New Year’s Day, 2004 at The Eagle, Vauxhall. Beside their famous well-hung equine neon logo (“Our Eiffel Tower”), their brand of reverential, revisionist bonhomie turned out to be its own form of futurism, restructuring the London nightclub pyramid. In the 16 years of their nightclub tenure, HMD have become a global brand. They have added monthly residencies in Berlin, New York and Lisbon to their London bedrock. Act Three of the gilded Horse Meat Disco story will see the release of their debut artists album. Love and Dancing, Jim, James, Luke and Seve have turned from disco enablers to creative, freewheeling disco inventors. Under the masterful tutelage of zen nightlife don, Luke Solomon (“The fifth member for the record, very much the daddy of it”) the boys have fashioned a record gilded with the fleet-footed spirit of their disco forebears. Love and Dancing is the culmination of seven years’ work, fashioned from demoes the four have been working on simply for the love of making music. Free of cover versions and lazy samples, it is documentary evidence that disco has a present and future every bit the platinum-grade equal of its storied past.
