Exclusive Mix Forhttp://electronicrumors.com/category/mixtape/= We are so honoured to present to you this exclusive mixtape for electronic rumors by none other than the legend Rusty Egan. Rusty was, of course, the DJ for the notorious Blitz Club where he essentially introduced electronic music to the UK music scene. Playing the likes of Kraftwerk, Yellow Magic Orchestra and the emerging British Futurist, pre-SynthPop, music amongst artists like Bowie, he helped create the New Romantic movement and subsequently SynthPop and ElectroPop in the UK and Europe. Which basically led to every single thing we write about on this site. Oh, and he was a founder member of Visage. Influential enough for you? Right here he’s put together a storming collection of tracks for us proving, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that three decades later he still has his finger on the pulse of electronic music.
