Description

 Afrika Bambaataa, one of hip-hop’s progenitors, was known as a talented DJ before his single “Planet Rock” came out in 1982 on Tommy Boy. The song, which sampled (actually re-recorded in the studio) elements of Kraftwerk’s “Trans-Europe Express” and was the first R&B track to use an 808, helped define a new movement in music, electro, which then inspired Miami bass and Detroit techno, and pushed the musician’s status toward near iconic.
