It was at the start of lockdown in America (which feels like it was two months ago but was only a week ago) that Peter Croce wrote something in his label Rocksteady Disco’s excellent newletter that stuck with me.
“I’m a little bugged out about it,” he wrote. “I feel like Rocksteady Disco’s entire mission is to combat social distancing and isolation. I believe we need to do it because we need to take care of one another and those with compromised health.”
That contradiction more than anything is why we started #StayHomeDisco and why we’ll continue for so long as anyone is stuck at home listening.
Peter is the head of Rocksteady Disco, which Lauren Krieger profiled for 5 Mag last summer. While you’re here check out his presumably extremely new or extremely prophetic Social Distance Edits on Bandcamp.
