Italo-disco started with [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff the sustained popularity of]] {{Disco}} [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff in Europe]] after [[DeaderThanDisco its death]] in North America. Before that, many Europeans made songs featuring synthesizers in pop and dance styles, in part due to high song import and orchestra costs. Music/GiorgioMoroder and Cerrone popularized the use of synthesizers in disco, and disco in some mainland European countries in TheSeventies had quite greater synthesizer usage, including the "Space disco" style. Prominent Italian disco musicians that would influence Italo-disco include Celso Valli, Giancarlo Meo, the La Bionda brothers, Mauro Malavasi, and Stefano Pulga. In the early 1980s, a sound that is now purely defined as Italo-disco developed, which was influenced by not only local trends but also by the [[http://www.electronicbeats.net/rewind-an-expert-on-how-italo-disco-became-cool-again/ UK music scene of the time]]. Italo-disco's breakthrough year was 1983, when many of the most acclaimed songs (commercially and/or receptively) came out. As the next years were the heydays of the biggest artists, there was also increased commercialization and production quality, in addition to the growth of Euro-disco in other countries. While the Italians made the material everyone loved, there's not too many Euro-disco releases from other countries that were popular in Italy. Some Italo-disco releases that made it to Latin America, eastern Europe, and the Pacific Asian nations became hits. The golden age of Italo-disco died down in the end of the 1980s when the Italo-dance, {{EuroBeat}} and Italo-house genres grew, although Eurobeat music resembled its predecessor up to the early years of TheNineties.

Italo-disco is different from disco music most people are familiar with. While it borrows elements from traditional disco, its use of synths is principal; Italo-disco is less acoustic and does not feature the Philadelphia sound, one change being that traditional disco drum beats having been replaced by drum machines in all but some older songs. Italo-disco is also more catchy and features arpeggios on occasion. Most songs are sung in English, and many artists used English-language stage names. A lot of Italo-disco songs are about love, and a massive number throughout the genre sound like they're straight from science fiction, regardless on their theme; few songs in the genre are only instrumentals, and most vocal songs from Italy have instrumental versions. The genre overlaps with SynthPop (a genre that people can confuse Italo-disco songs as), Hi-NRG, and Electro in some songs. Subgenres include the highly instrumental "spacesynth" and a less defined one with darkwave and minimal elements. Several (pre-)1984 songs in Italy feature electro, a style found in songs with high regard. In the late 1980s some songs have samba-like sounds and a fast tempo, signalling the transition to Eurobeat. The genre has regional differences within Europe. In contrast to Italian tracks, German tracks may contain elements of Schlager; sometimes it's described as a style derived from Modern Talking. In Spain, their songs may have happier tones and higher synth pitches, and are also called the "Sabadell Sound".

The majority of this genre's releases never saw popularity in the Anglosphere due to possible backlash, the [[GratuitousEnglish confusing and cheesy English lyrics]], and the poor music export record of Italy and other nations, but a number of those that did get released there became big hits, such as Baltimora's "Tarzan Boy"[[note]]Probably the most famous Italo-disco song[[/note]], Laura Branigan's "Self Control", and Taffy's "I Love My Radio". Chicago had one of the biggest Italo-disco markets in the U.S.; the genre was one of the music styles that helped spawn HouseMusic. Other releases were popular at club, party, or radio broadcast ranks, although in Southern California and other places with Hi-NRG dominance the songs may had been played faster at 45 rpm. Italo-disco has similarities to freestyle, an electronic dance genre in the States. Some songs from North American artists such as Bobby Orlando, Gino Soccio, and Lime have been labeled as Italo-disco, although the name is not standard to them.

Italo-disco is currently going under a bit of a revival, thanks to American artists like Chromatics, Glass Candy and Johnny Jewel operating out of Washington state's Italians Do It Better label. There is a movement of new Italo-disco songs by old and new artists since the 2000s, although the genre is still in obscurity or nostalgia in Italy. Many original 80s songs are available in digital music stores and CD's, and some rare releases received vinyl represses by labels in Italy and abroad. Poland still enjoys Italo-disco after the 80s, resulting their own genre called Disco-polo. The soundtrack to the 2011 film ''Film/{{Drive}}'' had an Italo-disco inspired soundtrack largely composed by Cliff Martinez. In internet culture, the meme character Pepe the Frog and the related cult of Kek became associated with the Italian-sung track [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl2-i7pjWDw "Shadilay"]] in 2016 thanks to the artist's name P.E.P.E. and an illustration of a wand-using frog in a record label design, and some VaporWave songs sample an Italo-disco song. According to Google Trends as of February 2017, people looking up Italo-disco tend to come from Poland, Hungary, Russia, and three of the four most populated Spanish-speaking countries, which also reflects the demographics of the commenters in Italo-disco YouTube videos.

Italo-disco is a genre of 1980s electronic dance music mostly derived from Disco and Europop. It originated from UsefulNotes/{{Italy}}, hence the name. As its popularity reached around most parts of Europe, German, Belgian, Greek, French, Swedish, Spanish and other artists have been influenced by the genre to produce their own similar-styled songs, sometimes labeled under "Euro-Disco".

Italo-disco started with [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff the sustained popularity of]] {{Disco}} [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff in Europe]] after [[DeaderThanDisco its death]] in North America. Before that, Europeans, primarily in central or southern Europe, made songs featuring synthesizers in pop and dance styles, in part due to high song import and orchestra costs. Music/GiorgioMoroder and Cerrone popularized the use of synthesizers in disco in general, and Italian, German, French and Spanish disco in TheSeventies had moderate synthesizer usage.

The majority of this genre's releases never found popularity to the U.S. and the U.K. due to possible backlash, the [[GratuitousEnglish confusing and cheesy English lyrics]], and the poor music export record of Italy and other nations, but a number of those that did get released to those markets became big hits, such as Baltimora's "Tarzan Boy," Laura Branigan's "Self Control," and Taffy's "I Love My Radio". Other releases got popular at club, party, or city radio broadcast ranks, although in Southern California and other places with Hi-NRG dominance the songs may have played faster at around 45 rpm. Chicago was one of the biggest Italo-disco markets in the U.S., where it was so popular it was one of the music styles that helped spawn HouseMusic. Italo disco never reached massive popularity in North America and Australia, but besides Europe, some releases that made it to such places as Latin America, eastern Europe, and the Philippines became local hits.

A lot of Italo-disco songs are about love, few are only instrumentals, and most vocal songs have instrumental versions. Most songs are sung in English, and many artists used English-language stage names. Italo-disco is different from disco music most people are familiar with. While it borrows elements from traditional disco, its use of synths is principal; Italo-disco is less acoustical, one change being that traditional disco drum beats having been replaced by drum machines. Italo-disco is more catchy and features arpeggios. The genre may overlap with SynthPop, Hi-NRG, and Electro. The genre has regional differences within Europe. In contrast to Italian tracks, German tracks lack some of the Italian instrument-like sounds and contain elements of Schlager. In Spain, the songs have higher energy and voice and synth pitches. Non-Italian tracks are commonly labeled as Italo-disco. Italo-disco began to be mainstream in the breakthrough year of 1983.

Unlike traditional disco, it wasn't known to be aimed at minority and LGBT communities. A lot of Italo-disco songs are about love, some are instrumentals, and most songs have instrumental versions too.

The majority of this genre's releases never reached to the United States and the UK due to possible backlash, the confusing lyrics, and the poor music export record of Italy and other nations, but a number of those that did end up there became dance hits, such as Baltimora's "Tarzan Boy" in 1985. Italo disco never reached massive popularity in North America and Australia, but besides Europe, some releases that made it to such places as Latin America and the Philippines became local hits.

The genre pretty much encapsulates the 80s. You get deep bass beats, [[EarWorm catchy tunes]], and joy from the songs.

Italo disco is different from disco music most people are familiar with. While it borrowed elements from traditional disco, its use of synths is very principle to it; traditional disco drum beats have been replaced by drum machines. The genre also tends to overlap with SynthPop, Hi-NRG, and Electro. The genre has noticeable regional differences within Europe. In contrast to Italy, German tracks lack less of the Italian instrument-like sounds, but may even be sometimes labeled under "Italo-disco".

The pre-1983 releases in Italy are more darker, minimal, and underground-centered than 1983+ releases.
