Mantronix: The Album, was first released in 1985, managed to expand the language of electronic music with classic singles ‘Needle To The Groove’, ‘Fresh Is The Word’ and the UK Top 40 hit ‘Bassline’ being enormous in the clubs, and while the debut album was not an enormous commercial success at the time, it has gone on to be a touchstone of all that has come along since, ending up well-placed in many an end-of-year list.
