With my ongoing fascination with music, and as I get older, I have got more curious about the point in time that I awoke to music, what may have inspired the people that were making stuff back in the 80s, and what else was out there that I would have missed. Partly due to friends on FB posting stuff, and searching through YouTube, and then Discogs to get Vinyl, I found some records that stirred a distant memory from only hearing them once or twice, along time ago, and also discovered a few new (to me) bits that I have come to massively enjoy.

I recorded this mix for myself to enjoy the records that blur the lines between house-sounding disco, and disco sounding house, i.e. the era where things were moving into electronic production from traditional "band" recordings, and you can "sense" the feel of house music, although it wasn't really known at that time.

So here is 2 hours of the dancier side of my favorite finds from this search and discover. Most tracks are from 1982-1986.
