Post Disco

Italian post-disco stalwarts Klein & MBO were formed around the nucleus of Tomas Ramirez Carrasco and M. Boncaldo. During the mid-'80s, singles like "Dirty Talk," "Wonderful" and "The MBO Theme" became big hits in both the emerging New York garage scene and Chicago's house community. Little else is known about the duo, though their singles remained DJ favorites well into the next decade. John Bush, allmusic.com

    Part 1 of Tommy Boy's comprehensive compilation of early electro, hip-hop, and freestyle hits concentrates on the fundamentals. The collection begins as it must, with Afrika Bambaataa and Soulsonic Force's epochal "Planet Rock," a sort of Rosetta stone for producers in the decade that followed and beyond. Loved (and sampled) to this very day, "Planet Rock" cleared the way for all the tracks that follow it here (arranged chronologically), including "Walking on Sunshine" by Rocker's Revenge and Jellybean's timbale-mad upgrade of Babe Ruth's "The Mexican." But despite the limitations implied in the compilation's subtitle, "New York Electro Hip-Hop + Underground Dance Classics, 1980-1985," the set reaches back to earlier sources, inevitably including Kraftwerk's bleats, blips, and beats. --John Sanchez
