By detroit will
this album still sound good over twenty years later. reminds of riding all around the country and overseas when i was with uncle sam. Had got my first ride with the alpine system and a new hottie. sound just as good now digital even though im all grown up. mantronix was before their time!
What was the name of the cut," Do you like Mantronix". So long ago I forget. any help out there?
This song takes me back to 86' cruisin and bumpin the bass all around the bay. I only had this on cassette and that was getting pretty worn out . If you never heard this album before this is a must have.
Still Frrressshhh Today
Mantronix, particularly Kurtis, was a couple steps beyond everyone in the mid 80's hip-hop scene in terms of production, music direction, virtuosity and creativity. The fact that they weren't very well known outside the hardcore hip-hop community only strengthens this fact. What he could do with that Roland 808 beat machine was nothing short of genius. It was sad to see this group slowly merge with the mainstream, and by the early 90's any resemblance of this trailblazer's innovation had vanished. However, listening again 22 years later is fun and every now and then I hear things I didn't hear back then - amazing how it still seems fresh. For a brief time, listening to Mantronix Music Madness (& The Album) "back in the day" was truly exhilarating, mind blowing, and felt like I was being taken on a hip-hop ride through inner and then outerspace. Superlatives are not enough. Wow.
Its freakin madness
It has been years since I listened to this album. This music has taken me back to the beach in Galveston. Ahhh the bass is low.
In 1987 I was first introduced to the Album and loved it. I transfered it to my best Cassette Tape [Metal] and it pumped-me-up on my commute to college and night clubs. My "friend" has yet to return my Album and my Tape eventually got eaten. Now, we finally meet again. But hey, does anyone know how I can connect my Apple SE-30 to plug-in to my car, so I can play my iTunes 1.0 ? : 0
