The 1980s Remixed (Vol. 43)

The 1980s Remixed (Vol. 43)

Playing tracks by

Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Erasure, New Order, Alphaville and more.

Chart positions

This show was 8th in the global alternative rock chart, 18th in the global alternative chart and 26th in the global old school chart.

Volume 43 has a theme - 80s artists each with two songs transitioned together.Took a stab at OMD's Goddess of Love in this one, hope you like the mix. Thought Vol. 42 was a bit too long, so I kept this one to an hour. Some software magic used near the end where Fine Young Cannibals and Howard Jones are concerned. I don't pretend for a second to be a live DJ, the end result is all I care about.

Tracklist is posted.

Great mix, Love the OMD, I always felt that The Pacific Age was a very inderrated release by them.

Dave Vachon

I pretty much love all their albums. I may remix a couple of songs from that album. I wonder if I could pull off a dance remix of Shame. I may give that a try.

Vol 42 tracklist can be seen under comments. Love what you do but can you please post the track listing Dave. Thanks :)

Dave Vachon

The tracklist was posted, but I just added it to comments too.

Dave Vachon

That said, I'd love some of the people who enjoy what I do to just trust me and listen anyway. :D

Stephen W Geddes

Thanks Dave. I just like to see the menu and which versions. Much appreciated :)

Dave Vachon

Not sure how you listen to Mixcloud mixes, but with iOS or Android you can view the tracklists natively, same as a desktop PC (which I use to make these mixes).

Stephen W Geddes

I listen through the mixcloud website on my pc which is hooked up to a pretty awesome surround system. When you say tracklist posted I never see it unless you put in description or in comments. I have just sifted through a few previous mixes and track lists are now visible. Cool!

Dave Vachon

My PC is hooked to my home stereo via Airplay. These mixes are/were primarily started because I love making the mixes that I can listen to while exercising.
