Don’t date yourself, but it’s likely this was the soundtrack for your high school, middle school or even college years. Either way, the 80’s were a fun loving, horrible fashion, good time having era. If you enjoyed his 80’s MTV flashback mix, add this to your collection for a dash of 80’s soul. Big ups to DJ Phaze for blessing us with another great mix. Hit the break for the playlist and enjoy!
