Following 2021’s ‘Musik Music Musique 2.0’ set, the third volume in the series looks at the electronic pop scene as it came to dominate the airwaves. A period which saw the 1980’s credible musical landscape evolve from gritty post-punk to shamelessly aspirational polished pop.

Featuring countless artists who would become household names (many of which remain active today) alongside lesser-known scene mainstays, independent innovators and novelty opportunists, ‘Musik Music Musique 3.0’ explores the evolution of synth pop from anything resembling a ‘scene’ into the standard musical form of the day, soon to be embraced by everybody from power balladeers to quasi-rock stadium acts. From chart staples and nightclub anthems to rarities, curios and collectables, this set gives equal airtime to all, basking in the breadth of ideas and innovation being explored as the musical world moved towards the mid-80s.

Eclectic, endlessly innovative and, most importantly, enduringly listenable, ‘Music Musik Musique 3.0’ continues where its predecessors left off, and sets the scene for forthcoming 1983 and 1984 editions.
