A great 80s party needs a specialist 80s DJ, with professional Mobile
Disco equipment to make it a fun theme night succes. Operating throughout the 1980s, we have the real time 80s
party experience from performing at thousands of 80s party's, actually
during the 1980s. We first took to the turntables way back in 1978 and know the top pop and 80s disco dance classics that
will get things going.
We are not just working from a pile of compilation CDs or downloaded 80s playlist, we know the music first hand as we played each 80s party clasic hits as new realease tracks.
The 80s was the golden age of cheesy pop tunes and the music charts
contained both classic floor filling dance music and naff novelty
records. As well as the cool cuts, the decade produce more than
its share of dodgy number 1’s like Joe Dolcies shut up
a ya face or from spitting image the less than classic chicken song.
Check 80s DJ Jim's Pop flops of the 1980s
for records to avoid at a 80s disco party today. When it comes to
eighties music The firm’s star trekking may be a 80's party
tune "but not as we know it".
In the 80s film soundtracks where as big as the hair styles, the
kids from Fame couldn't stop themselves from jumping on the nearest
car to boogie, and Top Gun took our breath away. Songs from films
like Cocktail, Footloose, Flash dance and Dirty Dancing filled the
charts as well as the dance floors.
The fresh, synth sound of new wave which was big in the early eighties,
faded to gray by the middle of the decade when cheesy pop tunes
became the in thing. Today classic new wave pop like 'Don't You
Want Me?' and 'Just Cant Get Enough' have once again become extremely
popular and will fill a dance floor at any 80s party. Jazz Funk
bands such as Light of the World, Freeze, Shakatack were massive
in the early 80s but perhaps not quite as popular today as the cheesy
pop tunes produced by the Stock, Aitkin and Waterman hit machine.
Many of the retro music 80's parties we perform at today focus on
cheesy pop selection. Tunes from Mel and Kim, Rick Astley, Bananarama
etc will often be remembered as top pop from the 1980s and a must
for the DJ to play at a 1980s music theme night party.
Madonna the Queen of 80s disco had her first hits in the early
80s, and following the release of the Thriller album, Michael Jackson(rip)
became the king of 80s Disco pop. Just like ABBA from the 70's any
wedding DJ must have a selection of Michael and Madonna's 80s music
to play during their wedding party set.
Boy bands like Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, and Modern Romance
churned out the hits and looked sharpe in nice suits. Mums favourite
and Genesis drummer Phil Collins had hits with the band and several
hits on his own, including three number ones. Phil also found time
to star in the 1988 film Buster.
