“Peoples Potential Unlimited” DJ Mix by passEnger

New dj mix up on my Cratedigga page.

I’ve been diggin a lot lately, getting some Boogie and Electro-funk records, a sound I really love.
At the beginning of the ’80s, when disco music decline was already on, a new bunch of post-disco sub-genres were growing up.
Boogie, Disco Funk, Electro-funk, were taking some elements off the ’70′s disco blueprint and re-shaping them by adding the first commercially available (and affordable) synthesizers and drum machines.
This blend of mid-tempos, funky fat basslines, electronic elements and soulful voices seemed to go in a completely different direction, compared to the development of Italo Disco, with its exasperation of the electronic elements. Boogie will later further develop into early Electro and Hip Hop. And, together with Italo, P-Funk and New Wave, Boogie will have a strong influence in shaping what was called, some years later in Detroit, Techno.

Back to topic, Peoples Potential Unlimited is a label that is doing a particularly good job today, by reissuing lost treasures from that era, usually built around local scenes and documented by small and already disappeared labels. I made a kind of mix/podcast to showcase some releases I like from their still small but interesting and various catalogue.

Download it and enjoy!
