The Street Sounds Electro Albums were basically what kick-started my life-long love affair with music.
I have now been DJ'ing for over 25 years & even today I look at these records with astonishing respect, this was the beginning for me and these records are still a huge pillar in my life...
Like a lot of kids back then I was breakin & poppin all over the streets and this was OUR soundtrack.
This stuff was mind-blowing compared to everything else, & the experience completely turned me onto the leftfield music scenes...
From Electro to House & Hip House... to Rave... to Jungle and so on...
The Electro series ran for a total of 27 albums (and one box set)
from 1982 to 1988.
The albums were initially labeled “Streetsounds Electro”
with the title morphing later into “Streetsounds Hip Hop”
Before the Hip-Hop House and the Techno scenes emerged, Electro-Funk was the catalyst for all three & the impact and influence of this pivotal 80’s underground movement would sow the seeds of the UK dance revolution.
Every track in this mix is taken from
The StreetSounds Electro album's 1 2 3 & 4
Mixed Live & Direct by myself & it gives me great pleasure to release this Definitive Collection of TRUE CLASSICS!
