80's groove!


Key kids. I don't normally talk about every dj gig I do on the blog here, but tomorrow night (that's Wednesday 19 November) I'm doing a special set of 80's groove music at ISA GT's party Musicalia. It's free and in the middle of Shoreditch at a venue with a great sound system - and you need a great sound system for 80's groove. In case you don't know, 80s groove is pretty much the only sound that is just not getting played out much these days. People will play all kinds of indie rock, electro/techno/house, even disco and sometimes hip hop or old school stuff. But I almost never hear the stuff like below. But I love this stuff and you need to check it out. I have a huge collection of it.

I'll come if you promise to play the Valentine Brothers "Just Let Me Be Close To You" and First Love "It's a Mystery to me".

Absolutely. The blogosphere needs more of this sort of stuff. Still sounds as good today as it did twenty-odd years ago.

Hope the gig went well BTW!

Can't access YouTube right now, but hoping this is all Yarborough & Peoples and great stuff like that.

Hope it went well.
