#TBT DJ Ayres – Space ‘N Faders

There’s just something about dance tunes from the 1980’s that always makes me incredibly happy. The energy and vibe of the music from this time period was unprecedented and laid a huge foundation for dance music as a whole. For our #TBT this week, we take a look back at DJ Ayres and his Space ‘N Faders mix, which he laced with great tracks from this era. Classics from the likes of Shannon, Depeche Mode, Rockwell, Nu Shooz and so many more essentials make up this excellent tracklist. Cool story about this mix is that it was Ayres’ first ever mix for Turntable Lab back in 2000 and Scott from Ten Deep did the cover art to completely compliment the vibe. Stream and download are below.
