Mix Of The Day

Mix of the Day: Co-Op “Live at Plastic People in London” (2005)

Believe me when I say : you need this in your life. Definitely well worth the hard disk space if you are a lover of Soulful Dancefloor music. More precisely, the Early to Mid 2000 British movement known as Broken Beat. Who knows why it fell off the map but what we do know is that back in those days we used to love this!!!

I had the pleasure of going to “Plastic People” the tiny but wonderful London club for a Co-Op night and it is an experience that has always stayed with me.

To rediscover some of these classics along with the background crowd noises is simply priceless! Big thank you to Lost Tapes from the Attic for this!
