Some of the most well-known artists that contributed to disco are:

Characteristics of Disco Music

Most disco music has a four-on-the-floor beat by a bass drum and layers of reverberated vocals, with horns, electric pianos, and rhythm guitars.

As opposed to the heavy lead guitar associated with rock music, disco music is more of an orchestral sound that relies on strings and horns.
