Some twenty years ago I was asked to present a three hour radio show on the German radio station Evosonic ( evolution of sound ) this was true DJ and electronic music radio featureing techno mixes by various DJs and covering the club music of the time, house hip hop techno trance club sound and a lot of experimental music. The response was amazing.

There were a lot of incredibly talented musicians who would get together and produce some incredibly funky jazzy tunes , too many to list on here. A lot of these musicians created some of the funkest dance tunes of the mid 70s right up to the mid eighties and beyond , a lot of this music is still being played ins decerning clubs and events even today. the journey through fourty years of club tunes is being rouned off with some of the gems, hard to find tracks .
On my journey through 40 years of club music , which went from the deep recesses of innovative dance music right up to tracks that actually made the charts. With access to the tools to make the music combined with an expanding, but however, fragmenting club scene , many new genres arrived on the scene.
Some of the tracks became collectors items on vinyl others film sound tracks , others club anthems. Some of the acts traveled the world and are still active today at many festivals. This was the beginning of what was to bleed over to the new millennium.

This is a mix of soulfull summer hits from the past , part of my own journey and tunes reminding me of places and people of the past.
