About the show

Playing tracks by

Marvin Gaye, Placebo, Donald Byrd, The Trammps, Sister Sledge and more.

Something a little different today. I've wanted to do something like this for a while as I delve back into the times before house music and take a look at some of the music that influenced the creation of the genre. Compiled and part-mixed by yours truly, have a listen to seventeen of the finest cuts of funk, soul and disco from way back when. From top drawer artists like Roy Ayers, Marvin Gaye, Barry White and so many more, there's the usual mixture of tracks you'll remember and others you probably haven't heard. Without tracks like these house music may never have begun. Come pay your respects.

Always respect the roots. So many tracks here that have been sampled in other songs. This won't be the last set of this kind that I post. Got loads more stored away.

Due to licensing issues in your country it is not possible to seek backwards. Why is this?
