‘Disco Inferno’ is a song by The Trammps, a disco group that were popular throughout the seventies. The song had limited success initially but found widespread popularity after it was included on the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. It was covered by Tina Turner in 1993 and remains a disco classic, one that’s required study for any disco/funk bassist. The bassline on the original recording was performed by Ronald Baker.
