Soulful disco from Melba Moore, released on Epic in 1978. There are some killer instrumental breakdowns, and a nearly 2 minute instrumental intro for the loop heads. Melba's vocal performance is fantastic too.

Hand Jive

An unusual rock-n-roll meets Italo-tinged disco treat from Rinder and Lewis, released on AVI (check the 'Best of AVI Records' compilation, unmissable) in 1979. Complete with Moroder-esque arpeggiated bassline and some absolutely massive synth sweeps. Gotta love it.

US Post-rock outfit Maserati is certainly not your run-of-the-mill guitar band. Their proggy, psychedelic instrumentals are laced with hypnotic melodies and creative percussion, all expertly produced. Here's the lead track from their 2007 LP 'Inventions for the New Season', released on Temporary Residence. For a more dancefloor-friendly reworking of this check the awesome 'Enjoy Your Prog' mix from Justin Van Der Volgen on the 'Inventions Remixes' 12", as championed by Norwegian disco king Prins Thomas.
