Seminal 80's Electro Label Streetsounds is set to make a comeback with some new releases in March this year.
If you are of a certain age you'll have fond memories of this labels impact on the UK dance scene when you were a teenager trying to pull of some elaborate break dancing moves down your local shopping center on a Saturday afternoon no doubt.
If however you're a little less long in the musical tooth this timely return will give an indication of why people sometimes get confused when people refer to electro house as electro, Go Bang Brighton being one of the many.
