KING OF THE BEATS (ANTHOLOGY 1985-1988) (LTD RED & WHITE VINYL)
2012 compilation from the pioneering Electronic/Hip Hop duo consisting of Kurtis Mantronik and MC Tee, King Of The Beats combines the best of Mantronix's work from the early, and arguably, best era of their career (1985-88) into one amazing listening experience, How do you define the music of Mantronix? Is it Hip Hop? Electro? Funk? House? Maybe the answer is all of the above (or is it none of the above?), It is true that Mantronix will be remembered for their multi-faceted sound as well as their ability to bend and bland genres flawlessly into a cohesive musical tapestry, but they will also most importantly they will be remembered as musical innovators and sub-genre pioneers.
