Bridging the gap between the disco rap of the early 80s and the early sample based hip hop of the mid to late 80s (featured on the two mixes we put together for Classic Material Edition #1) is a rich groove of drum machine led rap tracks characterised by the raw stripped down sound of bass heavy 808 kicks and snappy hand claps. But somewhere else in the melting pot of music released in that same era is the unlikely blend of fast paced electronic beats with dancefloor sensibilities, funk, rap and leftfield European electronica that formed the electro scene of the day.
