LOS ANGELES, CA – December 28, 2018 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – The holidays just wouldn’t feel right without a little 80s music magic so today decades fans convention company NostalgiaCon announced that it has teamed up with DJ Ursula 1000 to launch Vol. 1 of the NostalgiaCon Ultimate 80s Mixtape on Spotify.
Ursula 1000’s playlist includes a specially curated selection of 50 songs from 80’s and 80s-inspired music artists from today representing the genres of New Wave, Hard Rock, Hip Hop, Freestyle and Synthwave. Among the artists and songs are The Human League, Van Halen, Kavinsky, RUN-DMC, and The Cover Girls.
“The 80s were huge for me, shaping my musical tastes and design styles. That era or experimentation has never left my DNA as you can hear in my latest Synthwave sounding album, Galleria. Putting together this playlist was lots of fun — I hope you enjoy the trip!, said Ursula1000 (Alex Gimeno).
Today’s playlist drop is part of NostalgiaCon’s mission to bridge 80s music passions with the generations of Millennials, Gen Xers and Gen Y who revere the 1980s, arguably the most creative and influential decade today in American and global pop culture.
NostalgiaCon’s musical playlist collaborations are also a reminder of the great fun that awaits next summer when it hosts its unprecedented Ultimate 80s Reunion decade takeover event reuniting fans with the pop culture icons, legends, and newsmakers of the 1980s, July 4th-6th at the Anaheim Convention Center (ACC) in California (www.NostalgiaCon80s.com).
