Goin’ Old School: Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force, Mantronix & Egyptian Lover

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

This week on Goin’ Old School we’re going back to one of my first love B-Boy Electro, Electro Funk, Electro Boogie or whatever you want to call it. The Problem is most of the classic cuts from back them don’t have videos, but luckily we can kick off with the quintessential Electro jam, Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force’s ‘Planet Rock’ from 1982

We love some Mantronix round these parts, I think ‘Bassline’ from 1986 is the only classic Mantronix video we haven’t featured yet.

It’s a pity there aren’t more old Egyptian Lover videos. 1986’s Electro Funk fueled ‘Freak-A-Holic’ seems to be the only video he made back then
