I don't think that a disco revival is necessarily related to recession.

Disco fever makes comeback for recession-weary Japanese

Japan's disco boom of the 1970s and the 1980s is back for an encore at entertainment spots in cities across the nation, from Akasaka and Aoyama in Tokyo to Sakae in Nagoya to Minami in Osaka.

The revival is gradually reshaping the nation's nightclub scene, which was dominated in the 1990s by dance spots called "clubs," where DJs cater to the young and hip by playing cutting-edge music from hip-hop and techno to trance. [...]

Disco fever in Japan reached its peak during the late 1980s amid the intensity of euro-beat music and the golden gleam of gorgeous decor at such popular nightspot chains as Maharaja and King & Queen.
