DIY disco from the Pakistani pop workshop. Never ones to merely scrape the surface of a niche genre, Finders Keepers Records dig deeper still into the core of the Indian subcontinent, exhuming a concise party pack of opulent, off-center Pakistani party targets driven by the pounding drum box rhythms of some of Lollywood pop's most notorious studio scientists. Disco Dildar features rare plugged-in proxy pop from some of the country's lesser-known teen flicks spanning the late 1970s and '80s, featuring drum-heavy disco guesstimates built around multilingual lyrics celebrating Saturday nights, Disco Dildars, and Hindustani Hogmanays. These original synth-dripped 45 EPs are not from the front of the pile, nor the quirky result of some token musical tourism. The music found here once soundtracked rebellious all-nighters and hotel bar rendezvous from films of which your parents might have not approved, hence their scarce obtainability. Again, the Sound of Wonder (BMS 012 CD) team that bought you Life Is Dance (BMS 038 CD/FKR 049 LP), Ilectro (BMS 049 CD), Bollywood Bloodbath (BMS 039 CD), and others shares equal doses of the excitement, wonderment, and bewilderment that comes when first needle-dropping these elusive gems. Featuring the cut-andpaste electronics and fuzz-tones of flightless super heroes such as Tafo, Ashraf, Bazmi, Rana, and Ahmed, while voiced by Mehnaz, Nahid Akhtar, Runa Laila, and Queen Noor Jehan, it is plain to hear why the work of these DIY cosmic composers have eclipsed the collectable desirability of filmic fruits, igniting dancefloors and providing sample fodder of the wider continent for Wu-Tangular producers in their stride. This workshop funk redefines both DIY and disco, revealing a whole new side to world music, and marks Pakistani pop culture's transformation from disposable and indefinable to indispensable. Form a circle - Disco Dildar is now in rotation.
