Under various monikers, cellist/producer Arthur Russell is responsible for some of the most groundbreaking post-disco dance records ever made. Though a relatively obscure figure, Russell was instrumental in bringing disco out of the Studio 54s and into the downtown lofts and art spaces of New York during the late 1970s and early '80s. In addition to dance music, Russell also recorded numerous experimental works that featured him on cello and vocals. He died of AIDS in 1992.
