So I've been getting more into disco edits lately, and I noticed this trend in the mid 70s, when disco dominated everything, it started to influence lots of other styles of music. The styles that had this marrying of disco influence at this time that I'm most interested in, and seem to intersect a little bit when considered together, are:
-Southern soul/swamp boogie -- infinitely groovy, earthy, and funky, but with a very "down home" flavor. Usually slowed down from usual disco tempos. One time I played this one out at a record store day event and some dude straight up asked me if I was playing Grateful Dead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1ziVOsWUJc
-AOR/Folk Rock -- not yacht rock, tho some yacht rock falls into what I'm talking about. Best example I can think of is this doobie bros disco edit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM9utUFi2k4
-Krautrock -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfGf-zjRr-Y
Do any other music nerds around here know what I'm talking about? Is there a name for this style?
