    • BEATRONIC. stands above all and is superior to all.
      FRESH MESS DUB. electro in its rawest form. that track will be underground for eternity...and beyond.
      TERMINATOR. what can you say about this? its a masterpeice.
      MANIPULATOR. the cover alone IS electro.

      to name another 6 is far to difficult. these 4 stand alone for their own individual reasons.
      you could add JAYBOCK THE CITY ACE,HASHIM,EGYPTIAN LOVER,VSF,THE GLOVE,NEWCLEUS the list is endless...however those 4 are timeless classics.
    • These are mine based off what I heard/owned at that time. Probably not the most highly regarded "electro" tunes in retrospect but they are the ones I played the hell out of when I was kid.

      In no particular order:

      1. Triple Threat Three - Scratch Motion 12in.
      2. Daniel Sofer - 100 Speakers 12in.
      3. The Wreckin Cru - Surgey 12in. & He's Bionic
      4. Sir Mix-A-Lot - I Just Love My Beat 12in.
      5. Hashim - Al-Naafiysh (The Soul) 12in.
      6. Man Parrish - Boogie Down (Bronx) 12in.
      7. Newcleus - ALL
      8. Freestyle - Don't Stop The Rock 12in.
      10. The Uknown DJ - 808 Beats & Let's Jam 12in.

      I will mention Pretty Tony as an honorable mention for my list!

      As you can probably tell, I have an affinity for west coast tunes. I grew up on the west coast so I admit, I am a little biased.
