The First Of Four Series
exodusone | San Bernardino, CA USA | 05/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Rhino Records went to great lenths of preserving the roots of both Hip Hop and Techno music. In my honest opinion, Electric Funk gave Hip Hop more life and added more texture to the genre. Early Hip Hop music from 1979 to 1981 had a more stripped down sound, with a simple 808 beat, one synth/bass line with a couple of scatches. But Electric Funk, gave you something to both dance too and groove too. In the first series of Electric Funk : Part 1, we see the orgins of Electric Funk take it's place. Kicking off the set is "Planet Rock" (1982) by Afrika Bambaataa, which the second most important piece of Hip Hop history, right along side of "Rapper's Delight" (1979) by The Sugarhill Gang. To make this review more short, the CD showcases early Electric Funk from 1982 to 1983, mainly East Coast sounds, were Part 2 shows the beginning of the West Coast Era. Only thing i wished Rhino would have done with Part 1, was that should have added the Man Parrish classics "Hip Hop Bee Bop" and "Boogie Down Bronx", both songs played a big part in the Electric Funk genre. But overall, the four part series are one big history lesson in both the world of Hip Hop and Techno music. Another great thing, "Great liner notes, very detailed"."
Essential for fans

"I can't praise this 4 cd set enough.

Sound quality is excellent, decent liner notes - fantastic track selection.

Part 1 includes "Planet Rock" (Afrika Bambaataa), "Play At Your Own Risk" (Planet Patrol) and "Rockit" (Herbie Hancock).

Parts 2, 3 and 4 include "Siberian Nights" (Twilight 22), "Egypt, Egypt" (The Egyptian Lover) "White Horse" (Laid Back), "Don't Stop The Rock" (Freestyle) So many classics and the "Skanless Electric Funk Megamixes" are brilliant!

Anyone with even a passing interest in this type of music would be advised to purchase this."
Awesome collection

"This CD is awesome! I just got it a few days ago and cannot stop playing it. There are so many early freestyle and hip-hop hits on here. Of course, you could not have an electric funk compilation without the classic Planet Rock by Afrika Bambaataa, which was one of the earliest (And best) hip-hop songs. Play At Your Own Risk by Planet Patrol is very catchy and easily danceable. The two megamixes are unbelievably good, and I think they should have made a CD with one long megamix. Another classic on here is Herbie Hancock's Rockit, which is infectious and awesome to dance too. If you like good, danceable, catchy music, and you are interested in listening to some early dance music, pick up this awesome CD. You will not be disapointed."
