The popularity of dance music and of clubbing in the 1980’s exploded. With its roots in 60’s R&B and 70’s soul and disco, the new grooves were an eclectic mix of styles: house, jazz-funk, pop, hi-NRG, electro and rare soul classics being re-discovered for the 80’s clubber, all of which are represented here.

‘THE BEST 80’S GROOVE ALBUM IN THE WORLD… EVER!’ includes legendary acts continuing to find dance floor success - Diana Ross, Donna Summer, The Jacksons, Earth Wind & Fire, Marvin Gaye, Barry White and Aretha Franklin who all enjoyed huge hits in the 80s. Synth-driven Electro fused with hip-hop still sounds fresh today and is represented by Mantronix, Herbie Hancock, Malcolm McLaren and The Rock Steady Crew.

Disco never really went away either - it morphed into house and heavier bass-lines and produced some of the most memorable tunes of the decade by Womack & Womack, The S.O.S. Band, Ashford & Simpson, Whitney Houston, Alexander O’Neal, The Pointer Sisters and Miami Sound Machine. All of which are included here with their key club anthems.

Soul and Jazz infused pop tracks became some of biggest dance floor and radio tracks too. The likes of Loose Ends, Luther Vandross, Gwen Guthrie, Will Downing, Cameo and James Brown feature here alongside timeless pop from Hall & Oates, Billy Ocean, KC & The Sunshine Band and Taylor Dayne.

Towards the end of the 80’s, a new style of groove started to emerge - Soul II Soul, Lisa Stansfield, Mica Paris and Bobby Brown all have essential tracks here and whilst their grooves looked toward the 90s, clubbers were also re-discovering rare soul tracks from the early 70s and we are proud to include two of the most popular rare groove classics here from The Jackson Sisters and Maceo & The Macks.

This 80s Groove album is quite simply the smoothest collection of tunes… EVER!
