Montreal is a party town. It isn’t a recent phenomenon either — there’s something in the blood, in the water. And Unidisc probably put it there.

Growing up going record shopping and scouring for tracks in the basements of the shops on the Plateau, you’d come across the various iterations of the label’s logo without fail. They released and re-issued disco, hi-nrg and italo, and its presence in the city was so strong that many personal favorite italo records with names like Gino Soccio would actually turn out to be from here, not Italy. Montreal was referred to as “Disco’s Second City,” and Unidisc was largely responsible. Here’s a list of some personal favorites that I wish I got to hear at the Limelight in the ‘70s, reportedly Montreal’s answer to Club 54.
