planet rock revered

The Detroit Free Press, anticipating this weekend's Movement 2009 festival, runs a piece on Afrika Bambaataa's groundbreaking "Planet Rock," calling the Kraftwerk-sampling tune " game-changing work that stands as the cornerstone of both hip-hop and electronic music ... "

"'Planet Rock' was the epitome of what hip-hop could do," Z-Trip tells the paper. "Take anything, run it through a prism, flip it and make it bigger than it could have been. That's what we have today. It's all an extension of that one thing."

Baambaataa, Z-Trip and many more are scheduled to perform at Movement.
