Kurtis Mantronik is universally considered to be one of the most iconic and inspirational DJ, producer, artist and musician of our time. His influential 1980’s hip hop and electro-funk group MANTRONIX is widely regarded to have revolutionised street music in particular old school Hip Hop and Electro-Funk. This is the first performance in the UK of the group MANTRONIX for over 25 years!

 

One of the most influential Hip Hop producers of the 1980s, Kurtis Mantronik returned in the mid-'90s with a solo career, fitting in well with the legion of big beat artists/producers he had inspired and spawned several hits as an artist, producer and remixer, that continued well into the noughties. In many ways, Kurtis Mantronik is the sonic godfather of much of what has gone on in Hip Hop in the last few years, such as the use of 808 drum sounds to create moody music meant to transcend the genre.

 

Kurtis Mantronik was one of the pioneers and creative geniuses of drum machine-based Hip Hop, using his Roland 808 to produce ground-breaking hardcore Rap records for T La Rock and Just-Ice (cited as the start of Gangster Rap), at the same time he was making his mark on Electro, Freestyle and later, House. Kurtis produced one of freestyle’s most seminal tracks, in Joyce Sims’ “(You Are My) All And All”, as well as Joyce’s other international hit, “Come Into My Life”. “(You Are My) All And All” was the first song to feature (808) hi-hat triplets sequenced on a drum machine. Does that make Kurtis ‘King of the Beats’ Mantronik the true pioneer of the Trap genre? It also deserves a mention that T La Rock’s “Bass Machine” was pivotal to the development of another Southern-based club sound, Miami Bass.
