Take yourself back to the roots of EDM with this fantastic collection of electro soul numbers from the 80s – cuts that were both big hits and underground burners back in the day – all selected by dancefloor expert Joey Negro! This isn't the electro pop of the charts, or the tinny soul that crossed over back in the day – but instead the beats from the streets, from a time when soul and club music were getting a big influence from the hip hop scene, and using drum machines, turntables, and other electric touches to reinvigorate the music with a lean, mean sound! You'll recognize a few cuts here, but as usual with sets put together by Joey, you'll also find a lot more you wouldn't expect – on cuts that include "The Smurf" by Tyrone Brunson, "Feel The Force" by G-Force with Ronnie Gee, "This Party's Jam Packed" by Dwayne Omarr, "The Party Scene" by The Russell Brothers, "Al Naafiysh" by Hasim, "Release Yourself (dub)" by Aleem, "Mysterious Waves" by Kosmic Light Force, "Rain Forest" by Paul Hardcastle, "Breakin In Space" by Key-Matic, "We Come To Rock (energize edit)" by The Imperial Brothers, "What People Do For Money" by Divine Sounds, "Computer Age" by Newcleus, "High Noon (part 2)" by Two Sisters, "Video Control" by X Ray Vision, "Give Me My Money" by Beat Box Boys, "B-Boys Breakdance (inst)" by High Fidelity Three, and "Freak A Zoid" by Midnight Star.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
