About Old School But Good School

This website is a tribute to the influences and the early years of electronic music.
Yes, some may find some references too old or too new, too underground or too mainstream, too rare or not enough. Well, just think that each of us lived the “Techno” phenomenon at different times.
And even if we try to be as broad as possible, our vision is subjective as it is personal.
In the end, it’s the music that matters.

The OSBGS concept

Originally a website created in October 2009, by a 34 year old French guy, Steph. It’s tribute to the influences and the formative years of electronic music with no melancholy or nostalgia. Just a desire to share and to make an inventory of the music which made several generations dance, dream and vibrate.

The OSBGS dogma

Electronic music, which was produced before 2000.

OSBGS parties

The OSBGS nights started at the end of 2010 to celebrate the first birthday of the site. They now take place every 3 months at the 4 Elements, a magical bar in the 11th district of Paris.

Check the timeline and graphics we made to celebrate our 15000 fans on Facebook : www.oldschoolbutgoodschool.com/15000
