In August 1977 Mike Wilkinson (also known as Captain Mike) presented his idea to start a professional service for DJ's, providing exclusive material out of the massive amount of releases every month. Members of the service would receive extended remixes and exclusive tracks.
The first release followed in October 1977. The Disconet staff consisted of, amongst others, Tom Savarese, Bobby DJ Guttadaro and Kevin Guilmet, all of which had received the title of 'DJ of the year' from the magazine Billboard.
Other employees of Disconet were Bobby Viteritti, John "Jellybean" Benitez and Patrick Cowley. Cowley remixed Donna Summer's famous song 'I Feel Love', which was released commercially when he died in November 1982.
The last Disconet release was volume 11, program 13 in January 1990.
