Any one not convinced that Cali is as important for electro as Detroit or Miami or New York as far as America goes, please listen to productions from Dj Unknown and other electro pioneers from the 1980s in the West Coast. Beatronic alone will leave you stunned, to this day "bringing it " full on.
Hard to believe that small makeshift indie productions in Compton and its surroundings released some of the dopest techno since the 1980's to date.

especially the A-side has a very wide groove and hence plays loud with great bass.

music from the year 3000 or so...probably darth vader would freakout to this one...seriously, this is one of the best electro records ever and it makes anthony rother sound like a sweet little puppy...the gated dmx-sounds are fucking hard, the synthline has something both asiatic and energetic, the bassline is just sinister, and it's my favourite unknown-track...until today there is nothing quite like it! if you're into electro and still don't own it, i highly suggest you try to grab one, you won't regret it...!

This record has an amazing sound and is way ahead of it's time, to think that this record was released in 1984 is remarkable, it's production sounds like something from 1985 or 86.

This was The Unknown DJ's first record on his own label Techno Hop, so launched what was a great label with many great releases.

The track is an electro-funk style instrumental with a very heavy drum track and some amazing synth work. There is a great dark sounding synth bassline throughout with a melodic high frequency synth pattern appearing periodically, very typical of many electro-funk records of the time.

What is also interesting about this track is the sequenced scratch pattern near the end, something that Unknown used on a few of his records, most notably the classic 808 Beats.

A high quality electro-funk record that still sounds great to this day, easily one of the best west coast Hip Hop records to surface in 1984. This is one of those records that you would love to hear played at full blast in a nightclub to hear it in all it's glory.
