In this transmission, we’ll be heading back 40 years to October 1983 with a mixtape of Electro-Funk, Hip hop, Freestyle and Scratch 12″ records breaking into the UK dance charts that month. ‘Electro Funk’ brought together drum machines, synthesizers, turntable scratching and FX-heavy extended dub versions as a backdrop to uptempo raps on space themes and the struggles of late 20th century city living, introducing a generation to breakdancing, graffiti, rap and turntablism.
