5.0 out of 5 stars The First Of Four Series May 3 2001
Format:Audio CD
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".

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome collection June 9 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sample of the early 80's street music! June 11 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Actually this cd is part of a box wich contain 4 cd's all filled with good elektrofunk music starting from the early 80's to late 80's! i think this could be a revival of this typical street sound,maybe it will bring up some memories as well.Nice to have and to listen to. I prefer this sound before house,trance,etc. Good work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Original MEGAMIX by D.ST. Nov. 27 1999
Format:Audio CD
This CD is awesome. I just wish I had the first MEGAMIX 12" by D.ST. It is a version of ROCKIT with other Herbie Hancock songs mixed up scratching over top of the song. If anyone knows where or has a copy please e-mail me at agr1170@cs.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Great back-in-the-day music! Feb. 7 1999
Format:Audio CD
This CD (part 1 of 4) is a great collection of the classic 80's jam rap/funk music. The only problem is that there's not a 5th CD! A must have for any lover of 80's 'funky fresh freaky Friday' music!
