Mix Time: Unacceptable in the 80s

Artwork for 80s mix

After an abortive attempt at an 80s mix early in the summer (quality control refused to allow me post it), I decided to have another go. Instead of using actual tracks from the 80s, I used remixes or tracks that sample 80s stuff instead. Much easier to mix and hopefully much funkier to dance to.

I still wish I could have got ZZ Top’s Legs in there though. I ❤ that track.

    i cant wait to try this one at the gym tomorrow at 6am
    although i kinda liked the futile attempt earlier this summer, but it has to be said that the quality was not up to par of earlier works

    We all heart Simmons drums!

    Poor Orn was the beta tester for my first attempt at an 80s mix. Poor boy! (You were in a gym at 6am? Why? Do you work there?)

    Manuel, I’m looking forward to your feedback (but you can’t send it back…).
