Having had this in my wantslist for over 4 years I recently got myself a copy. Have to agree with funk_wid_it - this is a jam! Both sides are superb! Electric Body is really funky with a very groovy bass line and just the right amount of boogie synth & vocoder, and great drum machine programming. Breakers Anthem is, as already stated, an electro-fied version of 'Bounce, Rock..' - not so widely known so an interesting one to drop at a party (it's similar enough to be recognisable). And for less than £10 for a decent copy, this is definitely a worthy purchase!

'Electric Body (Long Version)'

Vaughan Mason doing the do once again with one of my fave Electro Funk vocoder jams. I just love the vocoders on this one!

I certainly like and recommend most Vaughan Mason productions, and he was a writer and producer that was never scared to venture into different dance genres - he's done Disco, Boogie, House, Rap, Electro Funk etc. 110% RESPECT every time.

'Breakers Anthem (Long Version)'

This one is also a cool Electro / Breaking track (loosely based on his 1979 Disco Classic 'Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll') and even features the same chorus melody refrain only to be replaced by (obviously) different lyrics.

Btw - Like MacDindon mentions below, the 1981 date on the label is indeed wrong! It probably came out in '83 or '84.

in 1981 there was no hip-hop production using this kind of beat box beats... i think this is more from 1983 typcally electro-funk sound ;)
