Singles: “(Hey You) The Rocksteady Crew“ has been released here on Atlantic after having hit several European pop charts and enjoyed wide import play in U.S. clubs. It is one of the most commercial rap-fusion records yet produced… Art Of Noises “Beat Box,” also a popular import (on ZTT/Island U.K.), achieves an opposite effect: its heavy-duty offbeat beat material with strange synthesizer and voice coloration in three distinct, heavily-edited segments. The flip, “Moments In Love,” surprisingly, is a long ballad-like piece which segues into a violent industrial-scratch passage late in the cut. No U.S. release was scheduled at this writing.
