Description

Having taken the electronic side of the 80s to new heights, Ministry Of Sound now presents the more soulful side of the decade with 80s Groove, a genre born from the legacy of disco. The beats were slowed down and the basslines cranked up, giving the
UK dancefloors anthems that still resound today. It was one of the most funky and feel-good periods of club music, producing classics from the likes of Chaka Khan, Jocelyn Brown, Sister Sledge, The Jacksons, Mantronix, Luther Vandross and Earth, Wind & Fire. There were the artists that were feeling the love too, with classic slow jams from Marvin Gaye, Imagination, Jean Carn, The Jones Girls and The Isley Brothers. Back in the main room the birth of electro was being tried and tested and ultimately given a massive tick with Indeep, Freeez, Herbie Hancock, Shannon, D Train and Lisa Lisa. Jazz funk stepped up via the soul weekender scene in some of the cooler resorts around the UK's east coast, and yet more anthems were appropriated by the DJs of the
day thanks to Tom Browne, Dexter Wansel and Keni Burke. With a definitive tracklist 80s Groove is another huge compilation, perfect for summer listening with the ultimate selection of classic, old skool flavours backed by stunning artwork.
