Disco is alive and hustling in the club-ready tunes of Escort. The 15-plus member “disco orchestra” emerged from a studio project by the multi-instrumentalist co-leaders and co-producers Dan Balis and Eugene Cho in 2006.

Five years and 15 members later, Escort released its self-titled full-length debut — comprising the 12-inch singles with new material -- in November 2011. For a taste of what disco for the new millennia sounds like, download the funky track “Makeover” from the recent effort. Also check out Escort’s Soundcheck performance of “Bright New Life” from January.

Escort plays The CBGB Festival at Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday night.
