In the early 1980s, electro (short for “electro-funk”) emerged as a fusion of electro-pop, funk, and boogie. Also called electro-funk or electro-boogie, but later shortened to electro, cited pioneers include Ryuichi Sakamoto, Afrika Bambaataa,[54] Zapp,[55] D.Train,[56] and Sinnamon.[56] Early hip hop and rap combined with German and Japanese electropop influences such as Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra inspired the birth of electro.[57] As the electronic sound developed, instruments such as the bass guitar and drums were replaced by synthesizers and most notably by iconic drum machines, particularly the Roland TR-808 and the Yamaha DX7.[58] Early uses of the TR-808 include several Yellow Magic Orchestra tracks in 1980–1981, the 1982 track “Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaataa, and the 1982 song “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye.[59] In 1982, producer Arthur Baker, with Afrika Bambaataa, released the seminal “Planet Rock“, which was influenced by Yellow Magic Orchestra, used Kraftwerk samples, and had drum beats supplied by the TR-808. Planet Rock was followed later that year by another breakthrough electro record, “Nunk” by Warp 9. In 1983, Hashim created an electro-funk sound with “Al-Naafyish (The Soul)”[54] that influenced Herbie Hancock, resulting in his hit single “Rockit” the same year. The early 1980s were electro’s mainstream peak. According to author Steve Taylor,[60] Afrika Bambaataa’s Planet Rock serves as a “template for all interesting dance music since”.[60]
