Hope you had all a greatful summer with a lot of moments & emotions to keep in your own mind. Now, summer is on his ending & the Soulvation staff is back for a new episode of the Food 4 Your Soul series. This one wants to keep you in a travel at the beginning of the 80's. Funk is heavy, but disco is on the mainstream to blow the planet worldwide. This selection wants to keep you in the right middle, just before disco funk became too commercial, and funk was muting to another age of his history. The hardiest was the selection, cause there's a lot of stuff in this period & if we would keep all tunes from this age, that should make 5 or 10 voumes. So we kept focusing on the most grooviest, on the thin line between funk & disco, the thin line where they all mix together... Hope you'll enjoy. Stay tuned for the good tunes...
