Before 1979's We Are Family, Sister Sledge wasn't a huge name in the R&B/disco world. The group had enjoyed a small following and scored a few minor hits, including "Love, Don't You Go Through No Changes on Me" in 1974 and "Blockbuster Boy" in 1977. But it wasn't until We Are Family that the Philadelphia siblings finally exploded commercially, and the people they have to thank for their commercial success are Chic leaders Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards. The Rodgers/Edwards team handles all of the writing, producing, and arranging on this album; so not surprisingly, almost everything on We Are Family is very Chic-sounding. That is true of the sexy "He's the Greatest Dancer" and the anthemic, uplifting title song (both of which soared to #1 on the R&B charts), as well as excellent album tracks like the lush "Easier to Love," the perky "One More Time," and the addictive "Thinking of You." The least Chic-sounding tune on the album is the ballad "Somebody Loves Me," which favors a classic sweet soul approach and is the type of song one would have expected from Thom Bell, Gamble & Huff, or Holland-Dozier-Holland rather than Rodgers/Edwards. Meanwhile, the intoxicating "Lost in Music" (a #35 R&B hit) is about as Chic-sounding as it gets. When Rhino reissued We Are Family on CD in 1995, it added four bonus tracks, all of which are remixes of either the title song or "Lost in Music." These remixes are intriguing; it's interesting to hear late '70s classics turned into high-tech 1990s dance-pop. But they are less than essential, and the original versions are by far the best -- how can you improve on perfection? Both creatively and commercially, We Are Family is Sister Sledge's crowning achievement.

Nile Rodgers und Bernard Edwards, die zwei sCHICken Typen

Bei Chic gibt es nicht nur „Freak“! Mitten im Disco-Wahn nähern sich Nile Rodgers und Bernard Edwards diesem Genre in ganz übermütiger Art. Sie sind lieber in den Kulissen als im Rampenlicht und veröffentlichen vor allem reihenweise Hits, die vom Funk geprägt sind und bis heute nichts von ihrer Wirksamkeit verloren haben. Nile Rodgers haucht als einziger Überlebender des Zweiergespanns Chic heute wieder neues Leben ein, nachdem er Daft Punk in „Get Lucky“ zur Seite gestanden hatte.

Philly Sound, Funk im Smoking

Weder Motown! Noch Stax! Sondern eine dritte, für sie recht typische Stimme sollte die Soul Musik aus Philadelphia noch hervorbringen. Das Duo Kenny Gamble und Leon Huff denkt sich diese Art Vorläufer der Disco Musik aus und bringt dann die in Seide gehüllten und im Champagner dahintreibenden Amerikaner der siebziger Jahre zum Tanzen.

10 Songs, die den French Touch entstehen ließen

Vor genau 20 Jahren überschwemmte der French Touch die Clubs und Radiosender auf der ganzen Welt und verschaffte damit Frankreich einen guten Platz auf der elektromusikalischen Landkarte. Qobuz erzählt die Geschichte jener zehn Titel, die für das goldene Zeitalter der französischen Produzenten ausschlaggebend waren.
