Afro / Cosmic music

In music, the terms Afro, cosmic disco, the cosmic sound, free style, and combinations thereof (cosmic Afro, Afro-cosmic Afro-Freestyle, etc., as well as Afro-Funky are used somewhat interchangeably to describe various forms of synthesizer-heavy and/or African-influenced dance music and methods of DJing that were originally developed and promoted by a small number of DJs in certain discothèques of Northern Italy from the late 1970s through the mid-1980s. The terms slow-motion disco[9] and Elettronica Meccanica are also associated with the genre.

Italian DJs Beppe Loda and Daniele Baldelli both independently claim to have invented the genre and mixing style.
