This selection is a C60 mixtape of some of the freshest sounds that appeared in Groove Records Electro Chart during the spring of 1985, mixed on Technics SL-1200Mk2 turntables from original 12″ singles and Streetsounds compilations. A time of B-Boys and B-Girls, Fresh MCs, Graffiti artists, DJs cutting and scratching on the wheels of steel, Streetsounds Electro compilations, 808 and DMX Drum machines, when Hip hop was the culture and Electro was the music; a mix of rap, synth-pop, turntable cut ups and electronic dance music. So, pause buttons at the ready, dust down your tracksuit, lay down some lino, crank up the Boombox and let’s dance.

Broadcast on Radio Reverb 97.2FM and DAB, Brighton, UK, streaming on www.radioreverb.com in these timeslots:
