Flash, King M.C., Disco Carl (aka Lovin' C), Mr. Ice, M.C. Fosty, and Mackermoe. Their name bears a close resemblance to Duffy Hooks III's Rappers Rapp Disco Co., which was the label that produced them, but the two should not be confused.

According to D.J.

Unfortunately, this was common for rap at the time, which would sometimes be released as funk, disco, or R&B, depending on the region. Dark Star did, however, receive a lot of Los Angeles airplay on KGFJ, and as a result of the exposure was able to perform for all L.A.
