In 1997 Electro revivalists were few. Vinyl djing & styles we had grown to love such as electro, were starting to be reinspected by a batch of new producers, artists & labels; for the most part the early 90s had been dominated by electronica, mainstreamish rave 'funny' derivatives, & a commercial bland "yuppie-ized" house 'market" that was more corporate-inclined than catering to any true intents. It seemed all was lost, Almost, but just in the nick of time, labels such as Breakin Records (& a few others) started releasing stuff the likes we had not heard much of; straight up 808 jams -with vocoders & sinister tones! Mandroid's Introspective has in itself a vocal narration in its 'Retrospect' that talks about coming from the old school and linking it to "the new school". Great to see that electro didn't die in 1997, not only did it not die in 1997 but electro has continued to give us new classic-worthy jams from Mandroid and others, Electro is still fresh, that is thanks to the underground artists that have kept it going true, & strong.
