Arthur Baker presents Breaker's Revenge - Original B-Boy and B-Girl Breakdance Classics 1970-84 / Compiled by legendary producer Arthur Baker, 'Breakers Revenge' is a near-definitive collection of original Funk, Soul, Latin, Disco and Electro classic tracks from 1970-1984. // These tracks, a combination of classics and obscurities, have all since become legendary to Breakdancers everywhere. First played at South Bronx block parties, community halls and park jams in the 1970s and 80s, spun endlessly by the first three major hip-hop DJs - Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataa - and found in the record crates of any DJ of note ever since. // Seminal funk and soul tracks such as Dennis Coffey's 'Scorpio', The Jimmy Castor Bunch's 'It's Just Begun', James Brown's 'Get on the Good Foot', The Mohawks' 'Champ' sit side-by-side here with the ground-breaking, classic electro of Afrika Bambaataa's 'Planet Rock', and Arthur Baker's own definitive 'Breaker's Revenge.' // Breakdancing has come a long way from it's New York roots to it's respected position as an art form today where, for the first time ever, it is to be featured in the Olympics held in Paris this August 2024. // The 'breakbeat' remains at the very heart of hip-hop, the mercurial funk, soul and disco tracks, always 100% guaranteed to get B-Boys, B-Girls and Breakdancers moving at any block party, with the percussive breakdown of each track the pinnacle soundtrack to any dance/battle between Breakdancers of any note. // Similarly these tracks have been sampled many 1000s of times over by every hip-hop artist and producer of note. KRS-ONE, Marley Marl, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Public Enemy, Eric B, The Fugees, Outkast, Mos Def, Main Source, Jungle Brothers, LL Cool J, de la Soul and, well, everyone! Compiler Arthur Baker played a pivotal role in hip-hop history when in 1982 he produced Afrika Bambaataa's seminal 'Planet Rock'.
