influence.

but to be honest i don't see where you got the house/techno thing from. Unless you're talking about hip house which was really short lived... but dayum!
I was just responding to the claim that European electronic music was somehow this huge influence on early hip-hop which it wasn't. The biggest influence on hip-hop was pretty clearly funk and most of the earliest hip-hop recordings were in fact done by funk bands. My point was just that the smaller amount of influence exerted on hip-hop by electronic music came largely by way of Detroit and Chicago, not Düsseldorf.

Interesting song you posted though, funny to hear someone sampling Talking Heads.

No, I know it wasn't you who made that claim. My original post was in response to someone else, Jackhammer I think. Anyway, it's all good. I like Kraftwerk and Cybotron but easily prefer Kraftwerk. And you have a great taste in electronic music and I love you for it. The end.

Dude, you can't even name a single blues artist. Have you even listened to anything outside of rock? If you consider those blues artists, then get bent. I have nothing more to say to you except ignorance is bliss. BTW nice avatar you have there, he's an american right?

influencing=/=inventing , in case you didn't know

blues artists influenced rock, they didn't invent it. rock artists invented rock... historical examples FTW!
