  • Hello all...can't find an introduction post so I guess this would be a good place to start..I'm 42 and live in west yorkshire..this puts me at the right age where old school electro is concerned.I remember Tim Westwood on pirate radio(LWR) playing Yello's Live at the roxy,people sending in their mixes(streets ahead),buying expensive imports(Divine Sounds was I think a £5),hearing Newcleus in the 6th form at school..and body popping at work on my lunch break..haha great times indeed..Normally I'm very forward thinking in my music tastes,really liking tech/minimal house,dj mixes etc..however I keep coming back to electro,and of course have got the shiny new NU Electro comp...I come down on the side of the beats and dj/scratching side of things,but can take or leave rappers..so I guess I'm in the right place..Here's some stand out tunes that stick in my memory..all fairly obvious,some not technically electro I guess but here goes

    1..Cybotron..Clear
    2..Byron Davies and the fresh krew..My hands...
    3..Jonzun Crew..Pack Jam
    4..C.O.D..In The Bottle
    5..Pretty Tony..Jam The Box
    6..Newtrament..London Bridge(Vocoder version)
    7..Divine Sounds..What People Do For Money
    8..Original Concept..Can You Feel It
    9..Man Parrish..Hip Hop Be Bop
    10..Chris "The Glove" Taylor..Reckless
    11..Jazzy Jay..Son Of Beat Street
    12..Arthur Baker..Breakers Revenge

    Is the Newtrament track..London Bridge,the vocoder version available on any cd release..I have the instrumental on cd but am struggling to find this version :( ?Thanks in advance for any info

    Rusty P & SST - Breakdown (NY Style)
    Midnight Star - Electricity
    Dynamix II - Just give the DJ a break

  • Posts like yours help making EE incredible.
    Man, neva heard this song in my entire life until now.
    One should notice that living in a third world country in the 80's forced us to dig only limited releases. There was no access to import records and there was no internet.
    This song should be reissued, cause it's great!
    Paz,

    TyDoZ
