    The/A Disco OR Disco

    Hi, If I want to say that the disco music in the club was great, what should I use when I will talk about it next morning (after visiting this disco club) :)? I am not thinking at the disco club but music in general.

    The disco /The techno, the house, the country, jazz, r&b.../ was great.

    or

    Disco /techno, house, country, jazz, r&b... / was great.

    Is this a big mistake in spoken English language (between teenagers e.g.)? I mean when I tell someone the disco or only a disco. What case do you prefer when you talk. With or without an article?

    If you are talking about disco music in general then no article is required. If you want to talk about specific disco music, that which you heard last night for example, then you can say: "The disco music was great last night".
