Origins 4: House Music Pioneers (Classic Soul & Funk 1978-86)

In the late seventies and early eighties it was modern soul busy laying the foundations of house music. Disco was supposedly dead by then, but it wasn’t in the slightest. It was simmering away in the underground ready to come back with a huge electronic bang as “House Music” from the Warehouse Club, Chicago in the mid eighties, heavily influenced by the style of music in this collection.

It was a time of Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, cassette tapes, ghetto blasters and the legendary UK soul weekender. If you were there, you’re going to love this!
