Hey, everybody.
So, I’ve been buried in homework, but I’m deliberately taking a break from it tonight, so I hope to put up 2 or 3 mixes in the next few hours.

Anyway, here is an old set I spun at a friend’s house party back in 2002 (I think). Put simply, I grew up in the 80s (I’m 30), and before I got into electronic dance music, I listened to a fair amount of British New Wave/Synth-Pop, partially because I had older siblings who did. In any case, I always remembered my ‘roots’ in this regard, so when I started buying vinyl in the late 1990s, I had to make sure to purchase some classic tracks from my youth. And, since some other people I knew also liked these tracks, they wanted me to spin an 80s set at that party – so I did.

Admittedly, I recorded it on a cassette tape, but it sounds pretty good, despite that fact (in terms of the audio quality, I mean). And it was a real blast to mix at the party, particularly since you have to be creative when mixing tracks of this style.

At any rate, if you enjoy old-school stuff, and/or 80s music, please check this out!

Also, I plan on putting up one or two other mixes tonight, as I said; I’m leaning towards an acid mix with a techno bent, and possibly a progressive/melodic trance set, too. We’ll have to see….. I’m off to the record stacks, see you shortly.
