Rappermatical 5 – Party People (Dynamite Pep Records ) 1980. I’ve had a few discussions lately about the state of music right now especially regarding the cross-cultural pollination that is going on within the electronic, dance and hip-hop music scenes. I can only say it’s about fuckin’ time. As indie-rock gets increasingly self-absorbed and college educated white, somebody is gonna have to bring the funk. I say let’s do this shit. Did you know that the differences between Neu! and Fela are purely cultural? On a musical level it’s the same thing. Let’s add some afro-Rican timbales to the mix and call it a day. Hook up the synths..my man Mark is playing a moog simulator through a Nintendo DS these days. Fuck the rules man…go out and do it.
What this rant has to do with the attached Rappermatical 5 track is up to you, the listener, to discern. I am merely a vessel. Don’t shoot the messenger.
