Description

Kurtis Mantronik and MC Tee formed the group Mantronix In the early 80s. Their Sleeping Bag Records debut - Mantronix: The Album shot to commercial success with its wildly futuristic sound that is summed up perfectly with the two songs featured on this 7". Side A features "Needle To The Groove" which is classic Mantronik production; pounding 808, pulsing bass, lots of scratching all accompanied by MC Tee's signature voice. Side B features the equally amazing (and the first single from the group) "Fresh Is The Word". While encompassing the same trademark style of "Needle..", "Fresh Is The Word" is a little more stripped down putting more focus on the beats and rhymes. Both these songs are essential to the foundation of Hip Hop which was starting to push the envelope of technology and sampling during this time putting Mantronik at the forefront of this movement.
