Afrika Bambaataa: Planet Rock (The Album)

Afrika Bambaataa was one of the pioneers of the early hip-hop movement, bringing together DJ's, rappers, graffiti artists and breakdancers at various block parties in the Bronx. He is credited with inspiring the electro-funk sound which had a lasting influence on many styles of music, including freestyle. Elements from the classic single Planet Rock can be heard throughout many of freestyle's biggest hits. The song uses the main melody from Trans-Europe Express by synth-pop pioneers Kraftwerk. Link
