A History of the "Apache" Breakbeat

Ultramagnetic MC's "MC's Ultra (Part II Edit)" (1987)

Album: N/A
Label: Next Plateau
Producer: Ultramagnetic MC's

At the opposite end from Kool Moe Dee's "All the people on the top, don't stop" number, the B-side of Ultramagnetic's second 12-inch is agitated and dense: "Move, and truly confuse/As a scientist, advancing technical / With polygon forming def beats to your ears," Ced Gee and Kool Keith yell back and forth as Jim Gordon and King Errisson loop away, their cadences shadowboxing with that rolling groove like cubists playing with negative space.
