Ive been wondering something: What happened to basslines between the 70s +80s? The late 70s, chic inflected. disco-ish style has a lot of longer, melodic patterns. but in most of the 80s funk stuff the bass is just a 2 bar riff with variations...anyone have a theory?

I think its the difference between

and synthesized base lines.

I agree....70's bass was classic bass guitar...in the 80's it was taken over by synthesizers.

Approximately in 1981 synthesizers started to rule the music world!

In 1981 Evelyn King's - I'm In Love (Kashif was both composer/producer) scored #1 in charts. It was 100% computerized and synth-driven song. And it was the first electronic US Funk song to be at #1. At the same time in Europe such acts like Depeche Mode, Visage, Human League, Spandau Ballet, etc. proved that 100% synth-driven music has the right for existance!

Without 70's KRAFTWERK it wouldn't be possible. I can hardly imagine the course of electronic music evoulution unless Kraftwerk's influence
