shep pettibone(http://www.sheppettibone.com/index_alphabetical.html) and francois kevorkian ( 'in the bush' by musique- an awesome disco tune and he basically made depeche mode's violator album the alternative dance success it was- actually their big break through particularly in america)mixed a lot more of my favorite 80s dance tracks than i imagined. they were there for that important bridge of sound between the disco of the 70s and house music.
i still love love love alisha.( shep pettibone). the bigger the hair, the closer to goddess.
cookie crew/got to keep on. i want to go everywhere with a posse of dancers breaking it down like it's 1988.
wee papa girl rappers/ it's like that. we call it aciiiid......
