Funky Feet On The Dance Floor

This mix is partly inspired by Bedmo Disco, who has always had a soft spot for the dub versions of both popular and lesser-known records from the 1980s:
“The 1980s was a great time for dance music. The development of affordable drum machines, digital samplers and powerful synthesizers gave producers and musicians the means to try brand new things. This of course led to many musical developments – house, techno, garage, electro, freestyle, ‘Jam & Lewis style ‘contemporary R&B – that either still dominate dance floors, or influence producers.”
I was also inspired by the vocoder voices on the new Daft Punk album. So I searched for similar sounds, like the ones from Richard Jon Smith, Michael Henderson and Ron Richardson (Henderson and Richardson are both bass players). Enjoy!
