For me personally, I got into electro through the Street Sounds Electro series of compilation albums that was released in the UK starting in 1983. I'd heard a handful of electro tracks before that, but those comps are what really got me into it and I think some of the early volumes are a good starting point if you're looking for music to check out, although that said, even though the albums were called "electro" they also featured some tracks that were just straight up hip-hop as well. Crucial Electro 1 is a good one and features some of the staple classics: -
And yes, my sole objection to people using the term "electro" for electro house is not because I dislike electro house (although I do), it's because it's confusing using the same term for 2 different styles of music. I know I'm fighting a largely lost cause with this, much like you are with b-boying and "breakdancing", but I do still think it's worthwhile bringing it up.
lol if u say so, personally haven't heard anything this hot in a long time though
