Electro funk

Electro-Funk is an electronic style of hip hop especially influenced by Kraftwerk and funk records (unlike earlier rap records that were closer to disco, musically speaking). Afrika Bambaataa's Planet Rock (1982) is generally considered the first electro funk record, it mixed Kraftwerk and Captain Sky[?], or was at least influenced by the latter. Electro funk also flourished on the west coast, where Egyptian Lover Arabian Prince[?] gave birth to bass music as well as influencing house music and other electronic styles of dance music.
