Nice track, but the title is quite misleading. There are no TR-808 sounds anywhere in this production. The drum kit is clearly an Oberheim DMX with some triggered resonant "zaps" mixed in.

Must have electro. simple as that

Correct vocals from Unknown:Beat by beat baby, rhyme by rhyme My body’s shaking, heart is aching, just to make you mine So as you dance to my music and your body drips sweat Here are the words you should never forget I am the prince of desire, the King of your dream And there will never be another in your life like me Cause I’m so tall, dark and handsome and claiming to be The hardest lover undercover of the M.I.C. From New York to London, from Watts to Rome My beat is thumping, feet are jumping for DJ Unknown Computerized musician with the futuristic beat The bass in your face, the chord’s so unique I am the music of the future, the sound of the street Chosen leader, supersceder of the humdrum beat Though the music’s devastating it was simple to create Cause I am the master of the 808........so beat this!"

Thanks Sum1 for caring enough to transcribe. I'm honored. :-) And for the record it's "King of your Dreams" plural and "So beat me" like beating a drum. Peace

Why should they talk about 808 and using another machine. It costs US$1,195 upon its release, which was considerably more affordable than the US$5,000 for the LM-1 or US$2,895 for DMX. Check Wikipedia for Roland_TR-808, Oberheim_DMX and Linn_LM-1. (...scroll down to...Notable artists and songs that feature... ;) Kind Regards

fits in every mix, still works on any floor, and it's very strange in terms of: contrary to it's title and record cover, i just can't hear NO 808, but a DMX with the same sounds wreckin'cru (world class), arabian prince (let's hit the beach), pet shop boys(opportunities) and dozens of other 80's artists used...most famous is it's fantastic backwards-handclap and unknowns archetypical rap ....and thx 2 djinsomnia for typing in the lyrics...there were a few words i never really got right when hearing it (LOL!)
Shezokha
This is definately one of the best Old-Skool Electro tunes ever made. 808 beats riddled with Kraftwerk and about a dozen other samples. A timeless classic; simply brilliant!
Weernis
There are no 808 sounds on this record. Sounds like a DMX.

This is definately one of my favourite old skool electro/hiphop tracks... Unfortunately I only recently heard this track a few years ago on Dave Clarke - Electro Boogie Volume 2! I wish I knew about all this stuff much earlier... I love it so much I had to type up the lyrics, this guy really knows how to throw down a rhyme. :) The way that the voice is filtered or vocoded sounds great as well. It's really catchy. "Beat by beat baby, rhyme by rhyme My body’s shaking, body’s aching, just to make you mine So as you dance to my music and your body will sweat Here are the words you should never forget I am the prince of desire, the King of your dreams And there will never be another in your life like me Cause I’m so tall, dark and handsome and claiming to be The hardest lover undercover of the M.I.C. From New York to London, from Watts to Rome My beat is thumping, feet are jumping for DJ Unknown Computerized musician with the futuristic beat The bass in your face, the chord’s so unique I am the music of the future, the sound of the street Chosen me the supersceder of the untrod beat Though the music’s devastating it was simple to create Cause I am the master of the 808........so be there!"

FYI These are the lyrics from the man himself, the above were my interpretation on a forum many years ago :)Beat by beat baby, rhyme by rhyme My body’s shaking, heart is aching, just to make you mine So as you dance to my music and your body drips sweat Here are the words you should never forget I am the prince of desire, the King of your dream And there will never be another in your life like me Cause I’m so tall, dark and handsome and claiming to be The hardest lover undercover of the M.I.C. From New York to London, from Watts to Rome My beat is thumping, feet are jumping for DJ Unknown Computerized musician with the futuristic beat The bass in your face, the chord’s so unique I am the music of the future, the sound of the street Chosen leader, supersceder of the humdrum beat Though the music’s devastating it was simple to create Cause I am the master of the 808........so beat this!"

Should be: "Chosen me the superseder of the humdrum beat"
