Music that defined the 80’s – Record Store Ep. 3
On the the third episode of Record Store, we’re throwing it back to the 80’s!
For us millennial’s, it’s an era often remembered for its costume party cliches. Think big hair and loads of eyeliner. But as well as makeup and fashion trends, the 80’s was an iconic decade for music.
Coming out of the 70’s, disco quickly fell out of fashion, paving the way for an emergence of dance music and new wave. But what largely defined the 80’s, was rock and pop. By then, most EP’s and LP’s were still being released on vinyl but also on CDs and cassette tapes.
As well as rock and pop, several major electronic genres were developed in the 80’s, including electro, techno, house, freestyle, and Eurodance, which became huge in the 90’s and through to today.
