San Clemente, CA – February 28, 2011- C1RCA Select is proud to announce the collaboration with Hip Hop pioneer, Afrika Bambaataa, on the Spring 2011 tee and sneaker collection entitled the Zulu Collection.
Bronx native Afrika Bambaataa is one of the originators of break-beat deejaying, and one of the architects of Hip Hop Culture. In fact, he is credited for coining the phrase, “Hip Hop” to name the whole culture, pulling all of the five elements together. He also helped fuel the development of other musical genres such as Freestyle or Latin Freestyle, Miami Bass, House, Hip House, Electronic and early Techno. He was the first to use a synthesizer on a Hip Hop record, ultimately creating the Electro Funk sound.
