The founders of seminal 90s title Jockey Slut have launched a brand new bi-annual electronic music magazine Disco Pogo, with the first issue out this month.

Following the success of 2020’s A Jockey Slut Tribute to Andrew Weatherall and a successful crowdfunding campaign raising £60k at the end of 2021, the new publication is a 236-page, heavyweight magazine bridging the gap between the new generation of dance music and the best electronic artists from the past 30 years and beyond.

Issue 1, out May 25, features Gilles Peterson and SHERELLE on its covers and will be available to buy in the UK, Europe and around the world from independent record shops, specialist magazine shops, selected newsagents and direct from discopogo.co.

Jockey Slut ran from 1993 – 2004 and was the first magazine to feature artists like Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers as well as documenting the Detroit techno and Chicago house scenes with exclusive access to the likes of Underground Resistance, Carl Craig and Green Velvet.

“We never had the intention of re-launching Jockey Slut and then events of recent years made us rethink. But the world has changed and so we decided that a new magazine with a new name was best,” say Jockey Slut and Disco Pogo founders Paul Benney and John Burgess.

Stacked with contributions from some of the best music journalists and photographers working today, the new magazine is fresh off the printers and is available to pre-order here.
