The best of Prince's electroninc/EDM tracks that are required listening!

I like to point out that Prince is just as much as a legend in electronic music history as Kraftwerk, YMO, Brian Emo, Stevie Wonder, Vince Clarke, The Human League, Heaven 17, Depache Mode, Roger/Zapp, and whoever that I forgot to mention.

With that said, this thread should be used to list Prince's electronic/EDM tracks that are required listening. If anything else belong on the list, let it be known in your own post[s].

The List:

Controversy

Let's Work

1999

Delirious

Let's Pretend We're Married

Automatic

Something in the Water (Does Not Compute)
Computer Blue

New World

The Human Body

Black Sweat

The Future remix

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Good pick. Remixes should be fair game. hmmm Cream [NPG Mix] should also be included.

On Billboard today then put up 9 Prince remixes by different DJs.

For the life of me I don't know how to put the link in (someone let me know - I keep doing what I do in every other situation, cut and paste and it never pastes in here?)

The Future remix is pretty hot.

Absolutely, I'm currently writing an article on this topic. What I don't get is why all those tracks from 1999 make your list but DMSR is left off. The perfect club banger. No wonder Prince played it at every concert I had the pleasure to attend, even as an opener in a small club. "I Feel Love" might be ground zero for EDM (maybe I'm wrong), but the 1999 album is the rosetta stone.

Head, Uptown, Hot Thing, It, IIWYG, Hello, Erotic City, etc etc

Erotic City used to be the dance club favorite as far as I know. I think DMSR should also be way up there.

P. Control, a good amount of the tracks on Come (eg Loose, Pheromone), Bob George? I'm not amazing at identifying EDM (not really my bag) so I could be wrong. I like this thread though.
