Editorial Reviews

Afrika Bambaataa, the Godfather of Hip-hop, has worked with artists as soulful as James Brown, as pop friendly as Boy George, and as funky as Bootsy Collins. The Cosmic Force co-creator can look back on his illustrious career and say that he and his crew are responsible for influencing the fate of several sub-genres of music, including Miami and Atlanta bass, Latin freestyle, hip-hop, house, and early techno. 1982's "Planet Rock," featured on the Don't Stop Planet Rock EP, is the ultimate party-rockin' record. The lyrics tell groove junkies about a utopia where socializing and getting down are the only requirements for residency. The words may go in one ear and out the other, but the beat knocks holes in the back of heads and it cannot be ignored. DJ Magic Mike's "Bass in the Planet Mix" funkily incorporates just what the title suggests, while the classic mix, more electronic in feel, embodies an overwhelming digital atmosphere. --Asondra R. Hunter

5.0 out of 5 stars The Begining Of Electric Funk............... May 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
On May of 1982 this 3 song single of Planet Pock was released and it became a new testament in the world of hip-hop. Today, Planet Rock still seems fresh to throw on at anytime of the day. Planet Rock and "Rapper's Delight" By The Sugarhill Gang (1979) are still the most influencial raps songs of all time, even though Rapper's Delight sounds more like an old-school disco song for late 1979. But "Planet Rock" will always live on within anyone who likes hip-hop and electronic music. But enough of the history lesson, let's talk about this 3 song single. The first track is the vocal version of "Planet Rock" with a timing of 6 minutes and 25 seconds. The second track is a bonus beat of "Planet Rock" with a timing of 1 minute and 15 seconds. And of course my favorite the instrumental version of "Planet Rock" with a timing of 9 minutes and 16 seconds. If you ever remember the instrumental version, that's the one that has the robot giving a shout out to all the cities around world. "Rock Rock To The Planet Rock Don't stop, Brooklyn rocks to Planet Rock Don't Stop". You know the rest if you remember. Get this single it's a "best of genre" for a time when breakdancing was still part of the underground until 1984. Don't get the remixes of Planet Rock. Get this 3 song single or get the "Electric Funk" Vol I or the boxed set if you find it, it's such an 80's gem. Then get the 1983 single "Looking For The Perfect Beat", but that's another story.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Planet Rock" gets the bangin' re-mix treatment! September 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Man, I don't see how the previous reviewers could diss this CD by giving it such low ratings. The Magic Mike re-mix is my favorite version because of the James Brown breakbeats he looped on top of the main rhythm. And the original 12" vocal version plus Bonus Beats 1 is reason enough to buy this CD. This is the song that everybody was rockin' during the summer of 82'. Classic jam that made all the b-boys and b-girls start breakin' and poppin'!
It just brings back the early sound and feel of hip hop that I miss so much. None of this "bling bling" crap that's going around now. This song gave birth to the entire "electro funk" scene which in turn influenced other styles of dance music like hard house, techno, etc. Add this to your collection of old school CD's and call yourself a true hip hop head!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Break Beats May 15, 1999

This song has a great break beat. It is perfect if you like to dance in any way, especially break-dancing. It's well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is truly an electro-funk classic. January 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is the electro classic which has inspired so many other genres of electronica! Although "Planet Rock" actually has it's humble origins within the song "Trans Europe Express" by Kraftwerk, no one can doubt the impact that "Planet Rock" has made on producers/DJ's all over the world. Even the "Miami Bass" sound is a spinoff of the "Planet Rock" sound. It also heavily influenced the works of such techno godfathers like Kevin Saunderson and Juan Atkins. I've even heard a mix of "Planet Rock" done with the theme from the "Addam's Family" on an old mixtape from Germany back in 1984. Anyone starting to get into the electro sound should begin with this all time classic! I would also recommend any of the releases done by the Jonzun Crew, Man Parrish, and the Planet Patrol for the best electro around. Peace.

I was looking for the original version of this song. I did not like this CD it was a remake and sounded nothing like the original version. Purchased the correct CD from another seller.

This true Old School recording will take you back to the 80s, the era of disco and break dancing. Planet Rock is truly a classic from that time.
