Various808 – The Compilation ... CD
Essential, 1980s/Early 90s/2016. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A great look at the Roland 808 – that important drum machine that not only formed the basis for some key hip hop classics, but also set the stage for countless cuts to come! The set begins in the early 80s New York scene – and features up three different mixes of two different important tracks – "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force and "Jam On It" by Newcleus – both of which take on nice variation in the different mixes. The set then moves onto other territory tracing the 808 both in the same period, and over the years – with cuts that include "Rock The Planet" by Megatrons, "Set It Off" by Beat Street, "Don't Stop The Rock" by Freestyle, "Dirty Talk (USA Connection mix)" by Klein & MBO, "Bass Rock Express" by Amos Larkins II, "Clear" by Beat Street, "Cars That Go Boom" by L'Trimm, and "Why Can't We Live Together" by George McCrae.

Various808 – The Music ... CD
Big Beat, 1980s/2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A fantastic tribute to the 808 drum machine – tracks all pulled together in support of the documentary on the magical beatmaker – but a set that stands more than strongly on its own! The mix of music is great – a heavy dose of 80s hip hop and club tracks, mixed with some more contemporary cuts from recent years – tracks that mark the return of the 808 to beatmaking strength – as a younger generation of creators embrace its sound all over again! Titles include "Set It Off" by Strafe, "Play At Your Own Risk" by Planet Patrol, "Yo Bum Rush The Show" by Public Enemy, "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force, "Paul Revere" by The Beastie Boys, "It's Yours" by T La Rock & Jazzy Jay, "Flow Coma" by 808 State, "Let The Music Play" by Shannon, "Hip Hop Be Bop" by Man Parrish, "Kickdrum" by Felix Da Housecat, "What You Gon Do" by Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz, "Vibrate" by Fluxx Pavillion, "Nothing But Trouble" by Lil Wayne & Charlie Puth, and "Gosh" by Jamie XX.

✨✧ VariousMiami Bounce – Booty All Night Long ... CD
Essential, Early 80s/Late 90s/Early 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two side of bounce from the Miami scene – mostly classic 80s electro soul cuts that really got the energy going in the clubs, mixed with some later tracks that took all the classics as the blueprint for their grooves! The set's got an unassuming cover and title, but really does a good job of bringing the roots into focus alongside more recent material – and illustrating a Miami sound that still has a lot more edge than all the cheesier, poppier dance cuts that usually show up on other collections. There's plenty of old school tracks with a hip hop and breakdance appeal, too – and titles include "I Like The Girls" by Fly Boys, "Rock The World" by BOSE, "Don't Stop The Rock" by Freestyle, "Computer Funk" by Maggotron, "Cars That Go Boom" by L'Trimm, "Jam The Box" by Pretty Tony, "Din Daa Daa" by George Kranz, "Pop That Cherry" by Amos Larkins II, "My El Camino Got Bass" by Low Riding Bass, "Miami Bounce" by Miami Bas Society, "Got Juice Got Dro" by Red Rabbit I Am, "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa, and "Go Insane" by Romeo Black & The Awesome Force.
