Ahead of #PLEASED's 1st Birthday Part at Dalston Superstore this Fri 4th Sept, house LEGEND Jon Pleased Wimmin EXCLUSIVELY presents a special ‘Influences & Inspirations’ mix, an unmissable journey through the electronic 80s and 90s:
“I thought it would be fun to create a mix using tracks that influenced and informed my taste and style in dance music from before house music. My journey musically was from new wave and synth bands through italo-disco and high energy to house, taking in lots of wonky pop and eurobeats along the way.
There is nothing particularly obscure or ‘cool’ about most of these tracks, but it is an honest reflection of what I loved dancing to before I became a DJ. I’ve also included a few of my favourite tracks from the very beginnings of my DJ career, to show how the earlier stuff informed it. I hope you enjoy it, it was fun making it. There are still elements of all of this in my sets now, it’s in my disco DNA.”
