Greg Wilson’s Discotheque Archives – Extended Hardback Version (2023)
In January 2023, Discotheque Archives will be made available as an extended hardback. It includes 20 extra sections, with additional DJs, records, venues and labels, which fill in some of the gaps from the original series, and comes complete with a number of new Pete Fowler DJ illustrations, plus a comprehensive index that lists around 750 records referenced in the book’s pages.
Having originally unfurled as a monthly series for DJ Magazine, Discotheque Archives was first issued in book form two years ago, during lockdown, as a limited run paperback. The hope was that it would sell 250 copies, with a best-case scenario target of 500, but the response exceeded all expectations and the final amount swelled to 1600 in a matter of weeks. Putting a cap on things at this point, the intention has since been to extend the book for future publication.
Highlighting the pre-rave era, taking in the DJs, clubs and music that laid the groundwork on which a now global dance culture was built, Discotheque Archives can be purchased via the sales link at the foot of the page.
All books dispatched via 1st class mail in secure wrap-around recyclable cardboard packaging (buyers also have a signed for option available). Three copies maximum per order, for larger amounts email firstname.lastname@example.org.
