Front 242 - No shuffle (1985)

This connection was formed firstly in 1981 in Belgium. They released some albums and got more and more popular with every release. They designed the new term EBM (Electronic Body Music) to describe their style of music. Always pretty dark and heavy.

Whodini - Magic's wand (1982)

The magic Whodini-crew bewitches us with classic Old School Electro Hip Hop.

Break Machine - Street dance (1984)

BREAK-DANCE!!! I love it... This is absolutely cult.

New Order - Confusion (1983)

Here you can hear one of New Order's facet: kind of mixture between synth-pop and old school electro.

Yello - Vicious games (instrumental) (1985)

This Swiss pioneers in electronic synthesizer music also should come to their rights in this blog. They have many strange sound elements in their tunes but that makes them unchangeable.
