My Year of Mixtapes Week 33: Post-Disco, Pre-House

My Year of Mixtapes Week 33: Post-Disco, Pre-House

Repost3

About the show

Playing tracks by

Jocelyn Brown, Luther Vandross, G.Q., Raw Silk, Sylvester and more.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a tape of NY Garage (prompted by Birgitte from Norway). I went on about how that music bridged the gap between disco and house, and really paved the way for all this new-fangled 21st century electronic dance music to exist.
Meanwhile, however, there was a lot of other, more mainstream R&B that was doing essentially the same thing—just in the pop sphere. Here is a tape of precisely that—more 1980s R&B cuts that rose up from the ashes of disco to pave the way for house (and everything that followed).
