Haste – 80s Mix Part 1

I originally did this one night for a bit of fun. I grabbed a stack of 45s and set about recording a set picking out tunes at random and seeing what would mix in. The results, I thought, were pretty ropey, but amusing nonetheless so I decided to post the mp3 up on a few message boards, not knowing how people would react.

It went down really well and it’s cool to see that so many people have enjoyed the mix. I even heard of people burning CDs for their mates or playing it down the pub!

It’s all done for a bit of a laugh, perfect material for a house party, grab a drink, put on the mix and jump about like you used to when you were younger. Loads of these are tunes that I listened to as a kid growing up in the 80s.

    Your 80s remix is absolutely fabulous. I rediscovered Part 2 in my discography. Looks I downloaded it about 7 years ago. Some files were lost in a HD crash years ago and after I restored the backups, somehow passed over this one. Checking those old filed, I found it now and made a search for part 1 too, so found your site.
    Maybe you could help me with a small problem. In the “crash” I lost a particular song, form 80s or 90s, I don’t remember title or singer, I’m quite bad on that. She sings from Mars at some particular moment, when cosmic sonditios are good until she must quit until next year, when she might communicate again. Do you have anu clue about title and singer? With this data, I might get the album again.
    Thanks and best regards

    Hey Lazlo. Cool to hear you’re still digging the mixes all these years later! Did you check part three as well?

    Don’t think I can help on the tune ID, I’m afraid. I don’t really recognise that one at all. Sounds pretty cool though!

    Hey Haste,

    So i have been enjoying part 1 and 2 of your 80’s mixes since you put them up. The other day my computer went into meltdown and i have basically lost 10 years of music and mixes. I would dearly love to have these mixes again but it won’t let me DL them only stream. Any chance i could trouble you to make the downloadable again, or if you don’t want to make em public any chance if gave you my email you could send me them over?
