  • Quote from doctorcrack;72003: “deltacity, check out the CBR - Underground Electro Volumes. I would say youw ill find the best current electro/hiphop tunes with an old school vibe on them.. youtube.com/watch?v=C4hJCRQcYvI” +1 on this lp, haven't had a chance to give it a good listen yet - just skipped through - but it is cool, @ Deltacity, I don't think it is the london accent that is the problem you are finding with M.C's but the way they rap these days is a different style. Remember Family Ques…

  • Quote from element;71292: “I can't think of many recordings where a skilled dj scratches the same patterns on a different song. It's plausible that Imperial Brothers - We come to rock was recorded earlier but delayed & parts of the John Robie , Arthur Bake Freeez session were merged .. ” Whiz Kid is credited on the labels of both Youtubes, I have the Beggars Banquet/Virgin issue of Pop Goes My Love, never noticed Whiz Kid credited before, I also have Imperial Brothers, never noticed on that it w…

  • Quote from element;71294: “This 1987 house remix also has that aaaaaaw sound. The dj also copies some of Whiz Kids scratch patterns. Denise Motto - I M N X T C ( Scooby Swift Scratch mix ) www1.zippyshare.com/v/14653187/file.html” The Awww sound is from Freeez's IOU, Pop Goes My Love was the follow up single, think it also featured being cut up on Breakers Revenge by Arthur Baker.

    Loads on this label I like, it's up there with Tommy Boy, Sunnyview, Def Jam etc etc... Here is one I really like - Awesome 808 Rap track youtube.com/watch?v=d1X70CdNe0M#t=93

  • Quote from defcreator;70481: “Trap is not really electro hiphop imo as you don't hear scratching like the old 2-Live Crew records and it sounds too commercial...” Yeah I agree - it's like it has took something from Electro Hip Hop/Miami Bass but doesn't pay homage to the old school - it's a bite of it really if you know what I mean. PS I was a big fan of Hip House back in 89, Doug Lazy, Twin Hype, Homeboys Only, Shut Up & Dance, Toni Scott etc etc, still got alot of that on 12"..... Electro Rap/…

  • Quote from defcreator;70462: “the point is when i listened to radio back then there was a fairly good chance of hearing electro rap, that's cause we had a lot pirate stations over here..now the electro rap scene doesnt exist anymore on air..either its underground boombap style rap or commercial club rap. I know about GFR but thats an internet station mostly playing old skool, not the same as taking a boombox on the streets and listening to to latest jams that came out that week on FM probably th…

  • Quote from defcreator;70189: “thats not true, back in the 80s a true electro track by the name of "Rock it" topped the wordwide charts, everybody was talking about scratching and most kids (like myself) were breakdancing to the numerous electro jams that many radio stations were playing.” +0.5(almost +1 ), also Shannon - Let The Music Play, Freeez - IOU, Paul Hardcastle - 19 topped the charts, all being true Electro. Not much real hip hop electro broke the charts though, the closest probably bei…

  • Quote from lj;69084: “Since this is the most important track for the evolution of everything this forum is about, I'd like to start a thread where we can collect all the information and stories about Planet Rock. So please contribute!

  • Quote from lj;59478: “Would be interesting to get this confirmed or cleared up somehow. I always assumed that Planet Rock was first. I mean they are both from 1982, but maybe somebody has the exact release dates? Planet Rock WAS a historical divide, that much is certain. "Clear" (1983) was influenced by Planet Rock; it even contains parts of Planet Rock's melody. The same applies to "Pack Jam" - there was an earlier version from 1981, but the version we all know all of a sudden features parts of…

  • Although Cybotron was already doing 'electro' before Planet Rock, he also wasn't making 'electro', I'm sure even back then he was calling it 'techno', he was influenced by Kraftwerk, New Wave and P-Funk...not hip hop(as told to me by Aux88). Funny how they also say that Planet Rock started it, because Man Parrish was doing his stuff at the same time, and the 'woof, woof, woof, woof-woof' was Arthur Bakers and co's little joke on 'Play At Your Own Risk' - because Man Parrish - Hip Hop Be Bop had …

  • Fatback4way Vinyl Life Invisible Rockers Crew Diplomat & Lloyd Da Zoid Reeno Artificial Arm Debonaire These are the artists I mostly take notice of, some other good modern stuff about to, I like the Galactic Funk Constellations lp too at the minute, listen to it in the car but don't know the tracks/artists names...

  • Quote from bhose;59437: “Cosmo D of Newcleus wrote on a similar thread here on EE some years back the same.. that back in the day he was simply making hip hop music as were all the other artists that we deem now to have been making 'electrofunk' out of New York, Cosmo had never heard of the term 'electrofunk' till the mid 90's...” If you listen to alot of the music from that era, it was the equipement being used, you had Italo disco, New Wave etc etc, all had a similarity, but we liked a certain…

    Quote from Bassrhino;56962: “I'm trying to get ableton live 8 to recognize akai miniak thru midi but unable. And does anyone know if i can put my own drum samples on the miniak. Instead of the presets. Ive not been able to find these answers in the manual. Thankyou” I've bought a Miniak this year and hooked it up to Cubase, I've used a Midi to USB Cable, using midi in/out the back of the Miniak to the pc, also found a good VST controller from Hypersynth, using that I choose the midi in/out of th…

  • Quote from Bokkiebeh;58103: “Difficult... Miami is immediately associated with Miami Bass...I'd say DXJ put it on the map (in my opinion) with OSÉ and Maggotron. (1983/1984) But before that there was already Electro offcourse... So it depends on what you like, and what you perceive as electro. Check out the Pandisc label and the Bound Sound label, you will find alot of the important Miami stuff!” This guy had alot to do with it... discogs.com/artist/Amos+Larkins+II

  • To me, in the 80's as a kid, 'Electro' was the abreviation of 'Electro Funk', it was the same thing, and to describe it's sound I would say it was 'synthesizer funk/hip hop from outer space' ... I viewed the genre hip hop to be the same genre as electro funk, I viewed Grandmaster Flash - White Lines as Jazz Funk back then(not hip hop or electro), I found 2 records back then strange though, Cybotron - Techno City and Man Parrish's LP, because the weren't 100%(or at all hip hop based), then also g…
