Electro-hop (sometimes called electronic hip-hop, electronic rap or robot hip hop) is the fusion of electrofunk with hip hop or rap. The electro-hop movement had come about after seeing the underground electro movement on the East Coast gain popularity with artists such as Mantronix, Man Parrish, Jonzun Crew, Newcleus, Planet Patrol etc. The electro sound was pioneered by Kraftwerk and was further developed by Zulu Nation leader and hip-hop godfather Afrika Bambaataa.
