1986 is the year when house music started exploding out of the underground, when the first Chicago house track hit the charts in the UK, and when this strange new sound started hitting the clubs in Europe through the imports. Neil Prince and David Oh will be taking a trip back to the dance sounds of 1986, playing the greatest hits of house that are inspiring a whole batch of current electronic artists, from Hercules and Love Affair to Disclosure to Duke Dumount to Annie to Azari and III and beyond. From those which still get plenty of love on dancefloors, to those which time has unfairly forgotten. Amongst the dance gems we'll throw in some of the quality pop songs that were also dominating the charts, and the soulful groovers that were keeping the dance charts sexy.
From Farley 'Jackmaster' Funk to Janet Jackson, from Gwen Guthrie to Communards, from Frankie Knuckles to Five Star, from Maze to Madonna, from Steve 'Silk' Hurley to Whitney Houston. The party will be jackin'!
