The term post-disco is a referral to the late 1970s and early 1980s movement of disco music into more electronic influenced sounds. This was mainly brought on by DJs, who remixed and added new experimental sounds. Post-disco music is generally quite rare; some excellent examples of hard-to-find songs are noted in video game "", on fictional radio station Paradise FM.

Also, disco's impact has been heard in many modern songs, mainly in house music, and as well as 2000's hip hop music like crunk and snap music Verify credibility|date=August 2008 Or|date=August 2008.
