Electro Radio Stations

Electro (or electro funk / electro boogie) is a genre of electronic dance music (edm). It is characterised by its heavier electronic sound and by the use of the tr-808 drum machine. Vocals are sometimes present in electro music, yet these are often performed through vocoders and talk-boxes which create a robot type vocal effect. Following the decline of disco music in the United States, electro emerged as a fusion of funk and New York boogie. Early hip hop and rap combined with German and Japanese electropop influences such as Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO) inspired the birth of electro. In 1982, producer Arthur Baker with Afrika Bambaataa released the seminal “Planet Rock” which was influenced by the Yellow Magic Orchestra using samples Kraftwerk and drum beats supplied by the TR-808.

Planet Rock was followed later that year by another breakthrough electro record, Nunk by Warp 9. In 1983, Hashim created an electro funk sound which influenced Herbie Hancock, resulting in his hit single “Rockit”. The early 1980s were electro’s mainstream peak. By the mid 1980s, the genre moved away from its electronic and funk influences, using harder edged beats and rock samples, exemplified by Run DMC. Electro became popular again in the late 1990s with artists such as Anthony Rother and DJs such as Dave Clarke. A third wave of popularity occurred in 2007. Electro has branched out into subgenres, including Electrocore and Skweee, which developed in Sweden and Finland.
