Finally found time to give electrofunkroots a complete overhaul, with full re-design and loads of new content. It’s the resource I’d always hoped it would become, and I’ll be adding to it more regularly from now on.
There’s a new Electrospective section, with interviews from the event back in ’08 (both video and transcribed) - pure knowledge from Mike Shaft, Colin Curtis, Hewan Clarke and Chad Jackson, 4 of the era’s most influential DJ’s, talking about Pre-Rave Manchester. Mike’s interview is currently online with the others to follow over the next 3 weeks:
The early Piccadilly Radio mixes, ‘The Best Of 82’ and ‘The Best Of 83’ are now embedded, and can be streamed / downloaded (more back in the day mixes to be added in the coming months):
Then there’s the ‘Early 80’s Floorfillers’ podcast, again embedded on the site with label / sleeve scans and full credits (you can also get this as an ap, details on the page):
There’s lots more stuff – articles, record lists, interviews etc. Hopefully you’ll go and have an explore for yourself.
