I'm talking about the early 80's stuff, not the new electro house.

I wanna pick up a compilation of early electro, but all the comps I come across seem to contain more old school hip-hop than electro. The odd track is ok, but I don't need loads of Eric B & Rakim and Run DMC as I've got all that already.

Can anyone suggest a really good collection of old electro? Planet Rock and shit like that.

Kraftwerk- this is a great place to start. "model", "trans europe express", "telephone" "tour de france"

The Time- many consider them to be R&B but actually if you peep the sound, it follows the format of 80 electro new wave music. "the character" "ice cream castles"

eyptian lover- dope pre-hiphop electro. "egypt egypt" "my beat goes boom"

herbie hancock- "rockit"

true. the thread said "electro" which overlaps new wave, hip hop, big beat, techno and house, even r&b and rock. the early 80s was a time of new electronic sounds so everyone was using snyths and sequencers. just like hiphop influences all genres today.

have you seen the rap country song? "honky tonk badonkadonk" ?

I'm looking for the sort of stuff that Street Sounds released on their Electro series of records.

Best cd I've found is the one below, but it's got too much hip-hop on it.

not splitting hairs, it's a pop record. it's not even close to being electro.

would it be splitting hairs to say that 36 Chambers aint a punk record?

^^ Yeah I don't know that much about this stuff, but I'm trying to avoid cheesy electro pop records.

Let's start listing tracks we know fit the bill perfectly then, and I'll up a compilation of them when we got enough.

I'll start with:

Man Parrish - Hip Hop Be Bop (Don't Stop)
