    Default Need Advice: How do you mix 80's music???

    I'm going to DJ for this 80's themed event and I've never mixed 80's music before other than "sweet dreams" and the "safety dance"

    So how do you guys do it? Can you give me some pointers and some 80's songs that can keep the crowd dancing?

    thanks in advance

    In a blender, or a concrete mixer ... I consider it a duty to attempt to wipe the evidence of such a god awful musical decade from the face of the earth (I mean even Stevie Wonders work of that era is shite, and thats STEVIE!)

    Basically anything from the Stock Aitken Waterman collection would go down well.
