History of the megamix: Disconet Top Tune Medleys

Came across a couple of Disconet year medleys recently that rate high on the mozzarella meter. However, there are moments of great mixing and phresh editing in selected parts, not to mention the high 80s flashback factor. Never realized the connection between Sugarscoop and Disconet mixes until I found these gems. Enjoy.
