Various Artists - Street Sounds Electro 1 (1983)
There is no doubt that Street Sounds's founder Morgan Khan has had a massive influence in the popularity of electronic music in the UK and beyond. A real shame that they went bankrupt, but by that stage the scene had well and truely been established.
I had to save up 3 weeks of paper delivery money to buy this original release. This genre defining series paved the way for hip-hop, electro and all the spin offs that followed in the late 80's and beyond. I'd also add that this isn't the best of the series but its the first. I have the rest of them and will be posting them over the coming months, unfortunately I encoded them all at 128kbps about 5 years ago and don't have the time to re-do them all again, so apologies.
