Album: Kings Of The West Coast
Producer: Courtney Branch
Captained by local radio personality Rudy Pardee, L.A. Dream Team epitomized the sound of their city's urban roller-skate culture circa 1985-the moment before gangsta rap rolled in. As the lyrics suggested ("If the music don't get you, the fly looks will"), the Dream Team's sound might not be to everyone's taste. This uprocking jam combines German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk with the theme to Dragnet. Timless, harmless, hyperactive fun.
