KAYTRANADA Remixes Afrika Bambaataa’s Hip-Hop Classic “Planet Rock”
Afrika Bambaataa’s hip-hop classic, “Planet Rock,” was interpreted in a new way by KAYTRANADA. As a part of Apple Music’s 808 film, an upcoming documentary on the revolutionary drum machine, the Roland TR-808, the song will live on an accompaniment EP.
The project features four remixes of tracks that changed hip-hop forever with the help of the machine. Records like Soulsonic Force’s “Planet Rock” were also revamped for the release.
The 808 documentary debuts on Apple Music this Friday, and features interviews with Pharrell, Rick Rubin, Questlove and many more.
