The Face, Electro, 1984

Information:

“Rapid and solid, fast and frantic, the Electro beat is the new Sound of the City – as stimulating as the urban jungle that spawned it. Dismissed as a craze, a novelty, denounced as sinister robot music devoid of ​‘real’ emotion, it proved to be a tough seed that took root on England’s pavements. And with it came a style and an attitude; a zany improvisation on the digital pulse of the age. David Toop tracks the rise of the Beat Box and asks: Wotupski, Bug Byte? Paul Rambali meets the Future Tribe, the B‑Boys. B for British. Photographs by Steve Pyke and Patricia Bates.” https://theface.com/archive/electro
