    Absolutely :) Every style his own borders and specifics. For example: wheh Juan Atkins remove break from his music, it became techno, or KW don't use that specific rhythm pattern it's just synthy.


    Man Machine ?
    Music Non Stop ? (808 drum machine btw)
    Its more fun to compute ?
    Not electro ?

    Wex,
    I did not disagree that the numbers beat is heavily used.
    I disagree with the fact that if a song does not use that particuar beat, vocoders etc then it is not electro.
    That is what you and your friend Wiki are saying right ?

    Anyway, we are always going to have different opinions, at least mine are from experience and not a dodgy web site.

    That Wikipedia article is awful.
    If you need Wiki to tell you what electro is...you might as well give up now.
    By the definition written there...most classic electro tracks are not electro.

    BTW...all electronic music is not called Electro...i never heard anything else use that title apart from the Electro we all love..and now Electro house.

    Quote from Cozmo D;64868

    So, if "Numbers" had a bass line then it would be "Electro Funk"? Believe me, I tried like hell to get that robotic, computerized sound but there is only but so much you can do with a Pro One and an 808. ;D

    If it had a wah wah guitar riff and a slap bass....maybe...

    ;D

    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.

    BTW..

    You can blame Streetsounds for a lot of this confusion.
    Most of the original Electro album series was clearly hip hop...just made with electronic instruments (as these were becoming more affordable and within reach of the rappers/dj's)
    (As soon as samplers became popular the hip hop heads soon turned to using breaks n beats from the OG tracks.)
    Artists such as the B-Boys, Davy DMX, RUN-DMC etc etc were clearly not Electro...but were sold here as such.

    Nu4 is a classic example..since when has Chuck D been electro ?

    Wex..

    Kraftwerk 1
    Kraftwerk 2
    Ralf and Florian
    are all official KW albums !
    They used flutes and acoustic guitars on Autobahn also.
    Ralf Hutter is rumoured to be looking at these earlier albums with a view to re-issuing.

    They tend to be overlooked because they are considered to be more experimental and not totally electronic.
    Still official though...

    :beam:

    Yup YMO was released end of 1979...and Kraftwerk "The Model" was on Man Machine (1978)
    But both videos were 80's... ;D
    Music Non Stop was a stone cold MTV favourite !
