“It was acceptable in the ’80s…it was acceptable at the time.”

This is the most retro-sounding mix I’ve done that doesn’t actually use music from the ’80s. I think everything here was released within the last two years; most of them were released within the last few months. True there are some artists who reached their peak in the ’80s – Bananarama, Camouflage, Douglas McCarthy (Nitzer Ebb) – but it’s more of a feeling: the drums are louder, the basslines are fatter, the keyboards are older. I hear shades of Talking Heads, Tanz Waffen, and Re-Flex.

Apart from Kiss The Future Vol. 1 this is the closest I’ve gotten to “Jeb’s sound”.
