This is the place for old school music. I set this channel up to share old school and retro funk/R&B music mixes. During the past 30 plus years I've collected over 120,000 music files. Many were converted from my 400 plus vinyl albums, 300 CD collection to many to count cassettes and 12in singles. This channel will feature old school groups like Cameo, Midnight Star, Atlantic Starr, Slave, P-Funk, and Zapp Band etc.... Classic artist like Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross and Barry White. Female artist such as Stephanie Mills, Patrice Rushen, Teena Marie and others. I will also throw in current retro funk groups like The Sunburst Band, Soul Trend, Cool Million and others. Most post will be simple beat mixes throwing in my custom extended remixes of some of my favorite old school R&B jams every once in a while. I hope you enjoy.

Vinyl Masterpiece

 

The site states: 'Our passion is the dance music from the eighties, especially the (rare and hard to find) disco funk classics. Our goal is to deliver our (and hopefully your) favourite disco funk music in the best possible way for a reasonable price. We offer vinyls (12inches and LPs) and CDs s. Most of our items are re-issues, which are available in a limited edition only, so if you are interested, please do not hesitate to order. Regarding the original (rare) vinyls (original pressings); it is always very difficult to obtain a large stock of original (rare) vinyls, so here you have to be quick as well'.
