Afrika Bambataa and the Soul Sonic Force - Planet Rock
All songs are at 320, DJs no excuses now:
Afrika Bambataa & the Soul Sonic Force, "Planet Rock (original vocal version)"
Afrika Bambataa & the Soul Sonic Force, "Planet Rock (bonus beats)"
Afrika Bambataa & the Soul Sonic Force, "Planet Rock (classic mix)"
In the spirit of my Old, Weird America thoughts with Dylan, what better time to upload the classic song that forms the basis of my own version of that America. "Planet Rock" sits at that amazing juncture between hip-hop and electro, creating a blueprint for both musics to develop.
-LA has the event of the night with Ladytron and Justice (the secret guests) performing at the Standard hotel. For free, motherfuckers. My bol Franki Chan and IHeartComix, my magazine Anthem and Dim Mak put this one together. RSVP here.
-"Throw Your Hood Up" at Sway with Ayres, Tittsworth and Trackademicks. Massive.
