Newcleus "Space Is the Place" (1985)
Album: Space is the Place
Producer: Frank Fair and Joe Webb
If you really think about it, space is the place. It's quiet, free of gravity, and there are no nine-to-five office jobs. That alone sounds like heaven on just-above-earth. Newcleus, mainly known for their dance rap classic "Jam On It," knew what was up. Combining traditional hip-hop elements with electro, they created some of the best interstellar jams this side of the troposhere. "Space is the Place" incorporates alien vocals, spaceship sounds, and warbly synths to transport you 410km above the earth. Toss this on the International Space Station stereo and it will transform into a discotheque. Good luck not tapping your feet or throwing a body shimmy or two while listening.
