Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force "Planet Rock" 12-inch re-issue on glow-in-the-dark vinyl B-Boy anthem from 1982 lights up any dancefloor...... literally! Fresh off Bambaataas historic donation of his vinyl collection to the Cornell University Hip-Hop Collection and the Fall 2014 "Renegades of Rhthmn" tour by DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist celebrating his unparalleled contribution to hip-hop, Get on Down celebrates the song for which the Godfather of Hip-Hop is best known: 1982's "Planet Rock," a Kraftwerk-meets-Bronx-B- Boy anthem. Renowned the world over as a never- fail floor-filler, this new 12-inch pressing of the single is pressed on glow-in-the-dark vinyl for the first time ever. Although Bambaataa may have gotten top-billing on the release, it was a team effort, with crucial contributions by a team including DJ Jazzy Jay, Afrika Islam, Arthur Baker John Robie, a Roland TR-808 drum machine (aka Planet Patrol) and of course MCs Mr. Biggs, G.L.O.B.E. and Pow Wow. This edition is housed in a clear, custom-embossed Get on Down poly-bag to let the glow show through.
