Getting back in the groove

Hello, wonderful people.

Wow, it has been a very long time since I have written to you! So much has happened to me over the last six months—I have traveled all over the country, I had the best year of my professional life, and the pièce de résistance, I finally launched my own consulting business.

I cannot believe it!

After years of work for Fortune 500 companies, I left my job to officially launch NICHOLAS TROBIANO STUDIOS—a creative consulting and design studio specializing in content marketing and digital branding. As a creative person, it has always been a dream of mine to own my own company, and the fact that I do now is surreal to say the least.

But as you can imagine (if you’ve been following along), getting STUDIOS off the ground has left me little time to blog let alone get enough sleep.

So now that it’s officially up and running, and I am finally starting to settle into the groove of things, I wanted to make a playlist that captured all of the excitement and elation I have in sharing the good news.

One of my absolute favorite genres of music is disco. To me, Disco is powerful, sexy, and always chic, and in a similar way, so is the design aesthetic I create for all of my STUDIOS clients.

Get inspired with my other music playlists here.

This playlist is a collection of some of my favorite classic and new disco tracks. Everyone from Donna Summer to Le Youth to CHIC to Spice Girls is featured here, so no matter how much you think you know about disco, you’ll find something that moves you.
