The first in a series of mixes of some of our favourite boogie jams.

The term ‘boogie’ was used to describe the soulful, often down-tempo post-disco music, prevelant in US cities such as New York in the early ’80s, and characterized by a blend of acoustic instruments, early synthesizers and drum machines such as the Roland Juno series and TR-808 Rhythm Composer.
