Afrika Bambaataa – Planet Rock

Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force’s “Planet Rock” is an incredibly important and influential work, partially due to its use of the Roland TR-808 drum machine. A documentary on the groundbreaking piece of musical equipment is set for release under the title 808, which will come accompanied with an EP featuring 4 remixes of Bambaataa’s seminal “Planet Rock.” The first of the mixes has been released on Apple Music today, and comes courtesy of Montreal beatmaker Kaytranada. The producer adds a strong synthetic pulse under the vocals, while leaving many of the original 808 punctuations intact.
