Kurtis Mantronik was a central figure in hip-hop's evolution from the clanking electro of its early years to the swinging funk of its late '80s golden age. Mantronix's debut and best album displays his mastery of sound editing, from the orbiting scratches on "Bassline" to the clipped bass thumps of "Ladies." MC Tee, his partner in Mantronix, simply can't keep up: He's just a party rapper, and not a great one at that. While MC Tee's middling chants dilute the album's impact, Mantronik's revolutionary def beats on "Fresh Is the Word" and "Mega-Mix" can't be denied.
