Lets go retro. For your party why not add a fun theme and make it a retro music night. We could include music from the swinging sixties, 70s disco or your favourite 80s party tunes. We did our first disco party back in 1978 so as genuine 70s music DJs in Essex we have the party experience to know what's a hit and what's best to miss out. We can mix and match the music or play from just from one style. For example 70s disco is different to 70's glam rock or 80s soul music from artistes like Luther Vandross is very different to the 80s synthesizer sounds of pop bands like Human League or Depeche Mode etc.
Many people agree, music today is not as good as when they were younger. However this is not really that true, because at any time in music chart history there would be a lot of awful tunes around. Wisely we forget the rubbish and only remember the classic tracks. For example if you love 80's music do you also love tunes like "there's no one quite like grandma", "Orville's song" or the classic "frog song" by Paul MCcartney.
With a Retro music night you can filter out all the stuff that doesn't work and no matter what period you pick there will still be loads of great tracks to choose from. In fact music selections can usually be honed down to an exact st lye. For instance 60's Motown is very different to swinging sixties Mersey beat or music from the 60s flower power generation etc.
What about 1970's punk rock verses 70s glam rock so different yet this music was divided in the charts only by about a year. 70's soul and disco are similar but you could have a retro music party playing one or the other, or both.
For a 80s music party's there is a broad range of music styles from which to choose. New wave bands with electronic drum machines and synthesizer sounds are always popular. Also maintaining popularity is the ska and reggae inspired sounds of early eighties bands like Madness and UB40. In the 80's boy bands like Duran Duran, Abc and Spandau Ballet became massive, not just here but around the world because new MTV played the bands lavish pop videos. Towards the end of the 80s, dance took over. During a party everyone started shouting aciiiiiiid.... house which evolved from the earlier Chicago and Detroit house sounds of the mid 80's.
