Unser Mix des Tages

Mike Grant, Detroiter House- und Techno-Allounder und sympathischer Label-Mogul (Moods & Grooves, End To End und Afrosyntrix), hat in den letzten Wochen mit einigen Mixen aus seinen Archiven den Spirit der späten 80er in der Motor City beschworen. Oder wie hier, den Sound seiner High-School-Jahre.

Something for the “jit”. Detroit electro and techno hop tracks from my high school days. Many East side high schoolers listened to more urban styles (associated with Addidas Top Tens, Kangol hats, and track suits while many West sider’s listened to more alternative types of music associated with preppy brands like Roots, Izod, and Polo, Featuring tracks from Cybotron, World Class Wrecking Crew, Egyptian Lover, Newcleus, Twilight 22, The Unknown DJ, and Model 500. Techno hop was the west coast brand of techno. Enjoy!

Und nach dem Electro-Rundumschlag gibt es noch einen Synth-Pop- und New-Wave-Mix.

Something for the “super prep.” New wave and alternative tracks from my high school days. Featuring tracks from Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Vicious Pink, Pet Shop Boys, Ian Dury, New Order, and Yazoo. Enjoy!

Die beiden Geschichtsstunden gibt es hier und hier.
