Studio One Showcase albums is a series of disco mixes of Studio One reggae tunes, released during the late seventies. Older hits were updated simply by mixing in lengthy instrumental endings. The popularity of the discomix allowed the label to prolong its reign, even after its most creative period had passed. Because a discomix filled up an entire side of a [12"] record, a hit song had the power to keep competing records off the DJs turntable for a good long time. Example of a twelve inch mix is Michigan & Smiley's "Nice Up the Dance," a version of the Studio One riddim, "Real Rock". Studio One produced about 50 12" mixes, Wackies about 50. Connecting reggae to disco, British record label Soul Jazz Records has released a compilation album of disco covers, Hustle! Reggae Disco.
