Dance Punk

Dance-punk (also known as disco-punk or punk-funk) is a music genre. In the late 1970s, this music style was most closely associated with the post-punk and No Wave movements. The original disco-punk fusion came with No Wave icon James Chance, who under the name of James White and The Blacks, released Off White in 1979 on Ze Records. In the early 1980s, the dance-punk scene in New York City was dominated by 99 Records bands such as the Bush Tetras, ESG and Liquid Liquid. The latter two's music was much sampled in the early days of Hip Hop.
