2016 restock. U>Mutant Disco compilation, originally released in 2003 as a 2CD release, has now been separated at birth into two separate volumes (002A, 002B) of power-packed, explosive post-wave, post-punk, post-disco disco music. From 1978 to 1983 in New York City, a rare breed of label exploded in vibrant neon-color to forever change the perception of and push the limits to the definition of disco. The dancehall that was home to Ze's Mutant Disco revolution was ready to burst over the top with a perverse blend of over-the-top musical spectacular to complement the grainier, more underground pop. Mutant Disco acknowledged that disco was as absurdly adventurous and radical as anything emerging from rock orthodoxy. Disco alchemists like Arthur Russell and Larry Levan, labels like West End and Prelude subtly "discolated" the norm in as spectacular a way as The Pop Group and A Certain Ratio, Rough Trade and Factory. Ze's original Mutant Disco compilation came after the label's first few years of quiet artistic defiance, steadily releasing records from the U.S. and French underground resistance. The artists housed on this compilation became absolute Ze staples: Was (Not Was), Material & Nona Hendryx, Cristina, Kid Creole & the Coconuts, Aural Exciters, James White & the Blacks, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Garçons, Don Armando's 2nd Av. Rhumba B. and Gichi Dan.
