80s Music DJ

A great 80s party needs a great 80s DJ, with professional Mobile Disco equipment. We are not just working from a pile of compilation CDs we know the music. Operating throughout the 1980s, we have the 80s party experience from performing at thousands of 80s party's, actually during the 1980s. 80s party DJ Jim Costello was first let loose on the decks at a party back in 1978 and knows the top pop and 80s disco dance classics that will get things going.

The 80s was the golden age of cheesy pop tunes and the music charts contained both classic floor filling dance music and naff novelty records. As well as the cool cuts, the decade produce more than its share of dodgy number 1’s like Joe Dolcies shut up a ya face or from spitting image the less than classic chicken song. Check 80s DJ Jim's Pop flops of the 1980s for records to avoid at a 80s disco party today. When it comes to eighties music The firm’s star trekking may be a 80's party tune "but not as we know it".

In the 80s film soundtracks where as big as the hair styles, the kids from Fame couldn't stop themselves from jumping on the nearest car to boogie, and Top Gun took our breath away. Songs from films like Cocktail, Footloose, Flash dance and Dirty Dancing filled the charts as well as the dance floors.

The fresh, synth sound of new wave which was big in the early eighties, faded to gray by the middle of the decade when cheesy pop tunes became the in thing. Today classic new wave pop like 'Don't You Want Me?' and 'Just Cant Get Enough' have once again become extremely popular and will fill a dance floor at any 80s party. Jazz Funk bands such as Light of the World, Freeze, Shakatack were massive in the early 80s but perhaps not quite as popular today as the cheesy pop tunes produced by the Stock, Aitkin and Waterman hit machine. Many of the retro music 80's parties we perform at today focus on cheesy pop selection. Tunes from Mel and Kim, Rick Astley, Bananarama etc will often be remembered as top pop from the 1980s and a must for the DJ to play at a 1980s music theme night party.

Madonna the Queen of 80s disco had her first hits in the early 80s, and following the release of the Thriller album, Michael Jackson(rip) became the king of 80s Disco pop. Just like ABBA from the 70's any wedding DJ must have a selection of Michael and Madonna's 80s music to play during their wedding party set.

Boy bands like Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, and Modern Romance churned out the hits and looked sharpe in nice suits. Mums favourite and Genesis drummer Phil Collins had hits with the band and several hits on his own, including three number ones. Phil also found time to star in the 1988 film Buster.
