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.
