Ultimate 80s Dance Music: The Essential Dance Mix Volume 2

Party Favorz presents The Essential 80s Dance Mix Volume 2, a harmonious blend of commercial, alternative, and pop-hit dance tracks, illustrating the rhythmic diversity of the 80s dance music era. A significant part of the 80s was the rise of Hi NRG, epitomized by Patrick Cowley’s remix of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” and his later contributions to the genre, such as “Menergy” and “Megatron Man”.

This volume also nods towards the gay community and the movement they helped define, which was deeply intertwined with the Hi NRG genre, as their music provided the soundtrack to a time marked by the emergence of AIDS.

Featuring an eclectic lineup, it juxtaposes tracks like Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin‘” with When In Rome’s “The Promise” creating an authentic 80s vibe. You’ll find Madonna’s “Into The Groove“, Whitney Houston’s “Love Will Save The Day“, and Shannon’s “Let The Music Play” among the mix, illustrating the varied landscape of 80s dance music.

Several tracks in this mix have been meticulously remastered from their original vinyl versions, ensuring authenticity while delivering quality audio. Notably, Madonna’s “Into The Groove” has been shortened to maintain cohesion and Whitney Houston’s “Love Will Save The Day” retains minor imperfections, reflecting the charm and texture of the period’s music production.

This collection promises a nostalgic dive into the 80s dance music scene, encapsulating the era’s sounds and the emotions they stirred. So turn the volume up and enjoy the rhythmic journey back to the 80s!

Until the next time…ENJOY!
