Men without hats, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, Sparks, Units, Second Layer and more.
I’ll save the long-winded personal reflections for this mix and just deliver it straight as it is: a representative slice out of the pool of synth-saturated, future-thinking music that I love, namely between the years of 1978 to 1985. A number of these tracks have been with me for a long while, thrown in crusty old mix tapes for people or rotated as vinyl on the decks back when I used to DJ quite frequently in the early naughties. Some of them are more recent discoveries. Some are recommendations or discoveries from friends over the years. Some of the tracks are by bands that had some notable popularity at the time and others more obscured by time (well, we can all admit blogging and the internet has unearthed quite a few of them!).
