I first saw this 12″ while reviewing this book for some website years ago. I didn’t think much of it until I saw the record again, remembered the book, and remembered that it was one of Tommy Boy’s early releases. I picked it up and loved it ever since; love the cover too.

“He’s Got The Beat” is an early ’80s electro-dance-cut, featuring cheesy punch-ins (“cu-cu-cut it up Whiz!“) and equally cheesy keyboards. Whiz Kid is credited with playing those keyboards, along with writing, mixing, and arranging, while a singer named Sabrina supplied the vocals. This was a fit with Tommy Boy’s futuristic-rap roster at the time, Planet Patrol, Key-Matic, and The Jonzun Crew for example. According to some websites (with often conflicting reports), Whiz Kid passed away around 2006. This song isn’t hard to come by nor is it turntable Whizardry, but it’s fun for sure. Cut it up Whiz!

Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or
maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot
of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
