Even harder than choosing records to post, and even harder than writing annecdotal blurb about the record, is finding a cool picture to put on top of the blurb. I don't like putting up pics of the record sleeve, or the label, mostly because it means getting my camera out and secondly because I'm secretive and odd and don't want you to know what they look like. It takes ages to find a fresh image to pilage for some reason and I have given up trying to find pictures that are representative of the tune in question, I should have probably searched for a picture of some 1984 era urban landscape for this one, but I came accross this image of a dude DJ'ing in 1978 instead.

DON'T email in anymore of your electro bloghaus banger remixes. DO email us your disco edits and boogie tracks, we love those, and especially any cool pictures you have of something rad going down in the early eighties, old party flyers, anything whatsoever. I will use them and credit you with supreme gratitude.

Rhythm Talk's Citystreet is a tough italo cut produced by Swiss radio DJ Jonathan Tedesco alongside Andy Imex. Jonathan Tedesco still remixes every now and again to this very day I believe and his radio shows in the eighties were popular in central europe. The imagery and swagger seem to pay homage to the street roots of the electro movement occuring over the other side of the Atlantic back in 1984.

    I picked this up at a side walk sale in '95 and it's a real keeper, love the long dub on the flip too.

    You'd probably dig some of these "baby hip hop" photos by Joe Conzo -- early 80s photos of hip-hop (and presumably early electro and house) events in NYC.

    ...nightlife photographers aren't so bad in the long run, eh?
