Just listened to your mixes - wow it's moved on so much. It's like party or progressive electro house now. There is no r&b gospel funk influence any more.
I think they just commercialised everything about 6 or 7 years ago. I think it's just this generation. I remember when the shamen and blackbox had songs in the top 10 charts. Happy Mondays, prodigy etc - we get nothing like that these days.
