Great mix here from a UK Producer/DJ lege, DJ Zinc. More recently inventor of “Crack House”.

Awesome mix going back to the brilliant 80’s!!

Here’s what he says:

This is the first of a series of mixes I’ll be uploading over the next few months, called ‘Trust me, I was there’ – I’ll be playing the tracks that were killing it wherever I was, wether in clubs or on radio. The mixes will be in chronological order starting with a mix of of music from 86/87.

In 86 and 87 I was still at school, so can’t be certain which tracks were big in the clubs – but thanks to the london pirate radio scene I was able to hear what i reckon was pretty much the same music in my own home. This was an era before mobile phones, before the internet – I’d be stuck to the radio all night long scanning the pirates with a pen and pad waiting for the presenter to say the name of any track to add to my list of tracks to buy (I say buy – it took me a few years to finally get em cos I was skint, and some of em only recently – thank god for discogs and a good memory!!)

Electro had been big in the couple of years previously and in this mix there are still traces to be heard, but acid house was the new sound taking over the underground!

These mixes are gonna be simple mixing, no triple drop acrobatics – just an opportunity to take a trip down my memory lane 😀
