1989 was the summer: Radio Raheem's 4-finger rings told the story of the left hand vs. the right, Hate vs. Love. It was the end of a decade of a tour de force in pop, soul and synthesizers. This new set by The Bay's DJ Zita, appropriately collected for Made Jewelry's new line LoveHate, revisits the many sides of the 80s rubix cube. The intro stabs of "Funky Little Beat" evoke visions of poplockin under palm trees; Rufus & Chaka's harmonizing sounds like they could've lasted forever; Robert Smith's voice embraces the duality with equal parts rapture and melancholy. Who wins in the end? I bet Frisco mic vet Melina Jones knows: Left hand Hate K.O.ed by Love.
