We all know Morgan Khan… a music mogul and entrepreneur well-known in the UK during the 1980s. He played a large part in making various genres of urban music more accessible to UK consumers of Black and urban music after his founding of the iconic StreetSounds record label.
Morgan gave us some classic albums back in the days which figure in all our past hip hop and b-boy adventures. And still do to this day.
After a quiet spell, Morgan came back with brand new Electro from new and established artists and you should check the albums out on iTunes to see what you’re missing –http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/street-sounds-nu-electro-vol/id388840609 and there’s volume 1 and 2 out there and a volume 4 almost ready to drop.
We asked Morgan for his Top 10 EVER tracks, but he had to heavily disclaimer it – ‘this changes daily, and it’s just from the first series, if I included the latest ‘Nu Electro’ series it may well be different again!’ but hey, it’s a great top 10 and probably features most of the tracks we’d all select if pushed to choose a top 10 Electro tracks line-up.
One other point Morgan made was they were in no particular order too!
1. Newcleus – “Jam On Revenge (The Wikki-Wikki Song)”
2. Captain Rock – “The Return Of Captain Rock”
3. The B Boys – “Two Three Break”
4. Grandmaster Flash – “The Message”
5. Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force “Planet Rock”
6. Mantronix – “Ladies”
7. Sugarhill Gang – “Rappers Delight”
8. Herbie Hancock – “Rockit”
9. Hashim – “Al Naffiysh”
10. Egyptian Lover – “Egypt Egypt”
Great collection of tracks, and a pleasure to mix them up, like we did at the end of the 6th Portion of An Evening With Tha Gods!
