I'm not the biggest fan of sub-labels..
Electro-bass, electro-funk..etc etc..
Its all Electro to me..
I can see where heads are coming from when labelling some tracks as electro-funk tho.
The same for more regular electro also.
Some are clearly more electroninc sounding and rigid, whereas some make ya head nod and foot tap.
Personally speaking, i have that hip-hop mentality..i.e take a bit from here..bit from there.
The hip hop d'j's i admired when growing up chucked everything into the mix, not just rap joints.
(I gotta say many of the rap tracks around in the last few years have fuck all to do with hip-hop)
Electro or Electro funk ?
I dont really care, all comes under one umbrella for me.
BTW..there was a definite shift in the style of Kraftwerk after that usa tour...no doubt.
