The opening moments capture a snippet of Nicky Siano, the original resident at New Yorks Studio 54 who went on to create The Gallery, a successor to David Mancusos Loft series of parties. This bow to humble beginnings, when disco shaped the birth of electronic music in the 80s, paints a framework for the producers of today who are still using disco as their foundation.
