As the contributor Pushaman indicated perfectly, 'Abstract Hip-Hop' is a category <i>defined</i> by 'Drum Machine', one of those records that leave you puzzling over <i>how</i> and <i>why</i> it was released. It's probably because in 1985, Russell Simmons & Rick Rubin weren't afraid of taking risks. It's a cliche, but there has never been a record that sounds even remotely like 'Drum Machine'. Nearly twenty years after its release, it remains one of the sickest, most brilliant electronic records ever made. The Beastie Boys made punk hip-hop, Burzootie & MCA made this one-off speed metal, roots dub, 'Bad Brains-core' hip-hop record. Love it or hate it, at 10,000 watts, this ruptures tarmac for twenty blocks.
