Always The Same (BMS13)

I’ve listened to a lot of mixes by Nu-Disco DJs over the years, so I finally decided to try a Nu-Disco set myself. This mix has my signature flair for obscurity and I guarantee it wanders over other genres, albeit only slightly. Surprisingly enough, this mix contains the fewest number of tracks of any I’ve done yet, and the transitions are pretty basic. While that sounds boring compared to what you might have become accustomed to from me, this mix is still up there as one of my personal favourites.

There’s no guarantees I’ll touch on this genre again in the near future, so you should definitely check out the mixes of Jeff Button, who first introduced me to the Nu-Disco genre. Jeff has a very wide selection of mixes available online as part of The Dig Deep Podcast.

Wide Retro Grooves (BMS12)

In the 1980s, DJs would play 12-inch singles in dance clubs which usually contained longer extended and/or remixed versions of songs. These records had a wider groove spacing than conventional records. Wider grooves allowed for wider dynamic range, which in turn delivered better sound quality. Wide Retro Grooves features just a few of those 12-inch extended mixes, with a few of my own personal edits in between.

Power Move (BMS11)

A nostalgia for the music of the 1980s is stronger than ever, and has recently sparked a completely new genre called New Retro Wave. Most of the tracks from this mix are by artists featured on NewRetroWave.com, a website dedicated to showcasing the music of this genre.
