Chic – The Artist/s

Chic is an American band that was organised in 1972 by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards. It recorded many commercially successful disco songs, including “Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)” (1977), “Everybody Dance” (1977), “Le Freak” (1978), “I Want Your Love” (1978), “Good Times” (1979), and “My Forbidden Lover” (1979). The group regarded themselves as a rock band for the disco movement “that made good on hippie peace, love and freedom”. In addition to refining a relatively minimalist disco sound, Chic helped to inspire other artists to create their own sound. For example, The Sugarhill Gang used “Good Times” as the basis for its success “Rapper’s Delight” (1979), which helped initiate the hip hop recorded music format that is known today. “Good Times” was used also by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five on its hit “The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel”, which was used in the end sequence of the first hip-hop movie, Wild Style, from 1982. Blondie’s 1980 US number-one song “Rapture” was not only influenced by “Good Times” but was a direct tribute to Chic, and main singer Deborah Harry’s 1981 debut solo album Koo Koo was produced by Edwards and Rodgers.

Everybody Dance – The Song

‘Everybody Danceis a song by American band Chic. The disco song, which features Norma Jean Wright on lead vocals and Luther Vandross, Diva Gray, Robin Clark on background vocals, was released as the second single from the band’s self-titled debut album Chic (1977). According to guitarist Nile Rodgers, it was the first song specifically written for Chic, and, due to its historical status and popularity, is usually played as the opening song of the band’s live set. It was later heavily sampled by British group Steps on their song “Stomp” and echoed by the Manic Street Preachers on their single “(It’s Not War) Just the End of Love”.

The Vintage Boombox – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of  a vintage boombox. A boombox is a transistorised portable music player featuring one or two cassette tape recorder/players and AM/FM radio, generally with a carrying handle. Beginning in the mid 1980s, a CD player was often included. Sound is delivered through an amplifier and two or more integrated loudspeakers. A boombox is a device typically capable of receiving radio stations and playing recorded music (usually cassettes or CDs usually at a high volume). Many models are also capable of recording onto cassette tapes from radio and other sources. In the 1990s, some boomboxes were available with minidisc recorders and players. Designed for portability, boomboxes can be powered by batteries as well as by line current. The boombox was introduced to the American market during the late 1970s. The desire for louder and heavier bass led to bigger and heavier boxes; by the 1980s, some boomboxes had reached the size of a suitcase.
