    This is not easy. I love 'We Come To Rock', especially for the intricacies of the production, but the rap was never a favourite of mine. 'B-Boys Breakdance' (Dub) - Hi-Fidelity Three is so propulsive, menacing even, as a track it just works so well.

    Considering that Hip Hop in the 70's was more on a local level in NYC, "In many ways" pays respect to the idea that Hip Hop was already alive and well, however, it really wasnt until Rappers Delight that it began to gain momentum, followed by Planet Rock and the trend that followed which began what is widely regarded as the early phase of Hip Hop which brought it to the worldwide masses. Street Sounds was responsible for bringing it to Europe, but also arguably responsible for the confusion as to what is Electro, since much of it would have been considered straight up Hip Hop.

    Had the writer claimed this was "the beginning" as many try to, it would have overlooked everything that went on in NYC, again, on a local level, but with players such as Bambaata, Kool Herc (who coined the term Hip Hop), and Grandmaster Flash already local legends who were clearly building a strong foundation for the culture.

    This post makes no sense. 'Hip Hop' as a form of cultural expression certainly emerged in New York in the mid to late 1970s - although there has been a reaction in recent years to situate the emergence of the form against the activity of DJs working within the Disco tradition, suggesting that the roots of Hip Hop go further than might be expected. In this respect 'Rapper's Delight' (1979) and 'King Tim III' (1979) represent a particular attempt to codify something which already existed and was recognised as a particular formation. Your analysis appears to suggest that 'gaining momentum' equates with a wider cultural recognition, seeing this as a positive. I am quite certain that if you went to NYC and spoke to the generation involved in the development of Hip Hop their assessment of the impact of 'Rapper's Delight' would be nuanced and variegated, and might not be expressed in such glowing terms as you would appear to suggest.

    I return to my original point, that 'Electro-Funk' is likely to be far more recognisable to a US context than 'Electro' - which (as you agree) was packaged and disseminated in the UK by Morgan Khan and his 'Street Sounds' label. This has a distorting effect, subsuming 'Rap' under a highly specific term that may have made little sense to the artists actually making the music. Where there was an advantage in this process was the fact that a UK Rap fan would be exposed to a diversity of music that may not have been apparent, available, or experienced within the US domestic context. Mike Allen's notes for 'LA Vs NY Beats' are very apposite in this context.

    I would also, very respectfully, posit that your suggestion that Kool Herc coined the term 'Hip Hop' is open to criticism - others have been suggested with equal credibility - Cowboy (for example).

    The predominance of electronic production was relatively short lived in Rap, it in no way represented the beginning of Hip Hop, it should be seen a a phase in the evolution of the art form and no more. That the wider dissemination of Rap through this particular form of production achieved recognition is worthy of further comment and exploration, with a thorough consideration of the cultural and social forces at play, and the individuals involved (Malcom McClaren for example).

    Some people might think that such nuanced distinctions do not matter, but they do. Otherwise narratives are created and espoused that may not accurately reflect, as far as is possible, the facts on the ground.

    155

    That is a valid point generally but in this particular context it appears to suggest that 'Hip Hop' and a particular form of electronic music co-existed and emerged at the same time. In the wider context the particular, specific and predominant use of electronic music as a vehicle for Rap was reasonably short lived - and was soon replaced (especially within the US context) by a return to 'breaks' (though perhaps with a lessening role for the DJ). Rap as a mode of expression predates the later adaption of electronic music known as 'Electro-Funk' - this can not be disputed. Moreover it remains the case that exposure to Rap in the UK was facilitated through culturally specific, and relatively few, outputs - meaning that the UK understanding and situating of Rap may make little sense to a non-UK audience (I am thinking here particularly of the 'influential and highly iconic 'Street Sounds Electro' series).

    There is certainly scope for more work to be done on mapping the cultural formation of Hip Hop, especially given the tendency over time to retrospectively 'push back' ever further the roots of the experience, and the fact that the four elements may not have been cohesively aligned from the start.

    One for a PhD thesis I think.

    Electro. We have all heard the word at some point in our lives whether we were warned against being electrocuted as children, or received an Electrocardiogram at a hospital; but perhaps not as much until we began to listen to a style of music for a long time referred to as “Electro”. More properly defined as Electro Funk, "Electro", as it began to be called for short, was not just one of the first actual sub-genres of Electronic Music to come about in 1982, but also in many ways the beginning of Hip Hop; where bands like Newcleus, along with producers like Unknown DJ and Pretty Tony would lay the foundation throughout the first half of the '80s for what later became Rap, influencing even the direction Pop music such as Madonna and Michael Jackson would take for some time; not to mention Miami Bass and the plethora of musical styles born out of the drum machine and synthesizer, which still prevail and actually continue to grow in popularity today.

    The curious part about all this, is that just a year before in 1981, the actual oldest sub-genre of Electronic Music was born, as Cybotron's "Alleys Of Your Mind" was released on Deep Space Records, 2 years later further building upon this new genre with the album "Enter" on Fantasy Records, and more specifically via a song that die-hard Electro Funk enthusiasts would claim was another building block for their beloved style: Cybotron’s “Clear”. Something writer and producer Juan Atkins, one of the 3 pioneers of American Techno, would refer to exactly as that: Techno Music. Having been greatly influenced not just by bands like Parliament, but also the iconic German pioneering group Kraftwerk; who in their approach and overall image presented themselves as a band of pure Technology, Juan Atkins and his fellow band of brothers known as the “Belleville Three”, would themselves...Continue Reading!

    I am sorry but this particular phrase, '[...] but also in many ways the beginning of Hip Hop' immediately indicates that the writer may not have a full understanding of Hip Hop and it's origins and evolution, which is (admittedly) quite complicated and still contested. Part of the difficulty will always be in attempting to articulate a specific and singular starting point for a genre, or a culture.
