Electro, short for electro funk (also known as robot hip hop) is an electronic style of hip hop directly influenced by Kraftwerk and funk records (unlike earlier rap records which were closer to disco).
Not all electro features rapping; vocals processed through a Vocoder is a common element and instrumental tracks are more prominent than in related genres of electronic and hip hop music.
