Some Electro Classics

About time I laid some treats for y'all. Here some songs that really have that X Factor when we talk about real old hip hop. Was 1985 a good year for electro??

---------------------------------------------
Freestyle - Don't Stop The Rock (1985)

A1-Don't Stop The Rock
B1-Don't Stop The Rock (Instrumental)

Download

Quite possibly my favourite electro song. Before I owned a copy on vinyl I had to make do with the version on Electro 10 as it was mixed on top of DJ Born Supreme Allah.

NYC Cutter - Dj Cuttin' (1985)

A1-Dj Cuttin'

Download

This was Marley Marl, wasn't it? Whatever, it was a super-tough track for me in 1985. It's just those claps that get me.

MCA & Burzootie - Drum Machine (1985)

A1-Drum Machine
B1-Drum Machine (Psycho Dust Version)

Download

Before the Beastie Boys got better-known, MCA was getting down with Burzootie to produce this nice bit of wax. Arthur Baker had a finger in this pie, too.

Fresh 3 Mc's - Fresh (1983)

A1-Fresh
B1-Fresh (Instrumental)

Download

"F-R-E-S-H, fresh, fresh, fresh, yo that's fresh!" Who doesn't remember this simple little chorus?

Word Of Mouth - King Kut (1985)

A1-King Kut
B1-King Kut (New Remix)
B2-King Kut (Bonus Beats)

Download

Competing with Don't Stop The Rock as my all-time favourite, this track needs no introduction.

A1- B Boys Style (Vocal)
B1- B Boys Style (Instrumental)

Download
