Is there a genre term more misunderstood than “electro”? It’s been used to describe many different styles in many different contexts, but true-school fans know that electro—aka electro breaks or electro-funk—is the snapping, syncopated sound that since the '80s has represented electronic dance music at its purest. Brainchild of Cybotron, cousin of Miami bass, and a revolutionary tool in the hands of Drexciya, electro breaks lives on today in 808 grooves and cyborg melodies, a retro-futurist sound that shows no signs of stopping.
