A 1980s disco hire
reflects the ever changing music of the decade.
The disco sound of the 1970s continued along with the more traditional music forms such as rock and soul.
We saw a new music genre which called itself New Romantic enter the scene in the early 1980s. Synthesizer driven it brought a
different feel to the dance floors. Some of the music despite the beat was brooding almost melancholy, groups like Spandau Ballet, Visage, Japan, Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears and many others
paved the way. We also saw reinvention by some as well, such as Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, who in the late 70s had been part of the group The Tourists, forming a duo called the Eurythmics.
Music changed and fashions followed, it was almost symbiotic.
Pop music changed too, we saw the rise of Stock, Aitken & Waterman aka The Hit Factory, who turned soap stars like Kylie Minogue & Jason Donovan into pop stars.
Pop took on an almost cheesy disco feel at times and the public lapped it up. It was as if pop music was on a conveyor belt.
One of the biggest changes came in 1986, dance music was already a part of the scene but in 1986 it changed forever, we were introduced to House music for the first time.
Love Can't Turn Around released on the House Sound Of Chicago label hit the clubs and the charts, and this pumping dance music was named after that original record label.
In the late 80s we saw house music sampling tracks which created a whole new debate over copyright.
In the 1980s the way music was made changed forever.
The 80s disco throbbed with the bass beat, the sound and lighting advancing to make clubs something really spectacular. Innovation ruled and DJs began to reach new heights some becoming superstars.
