Electrofunk. Especially electrofunk with vocoder action. I like what I'm listening to, and I want more.

I've been listening to "Planet Rock", "Electric Kingdom", and "Siberian Nights" over and over again, and I need to add to my playlist. I love the Afrika Bambaataa style on these songs, with the scifi-esque funk and the sweet energetic beats and the robot-voice vocoder. I'm checking some of the "if you like this artist, you'll like these artists" websites for other groups, but I'd also love AskMeFi folks' opinions, and especially would like names of individual songs as well as artists, which I haven't found a good resource for.
I do like Parliament Funkadelic, but that sounds like really a different style to me. I really like the Bambaataa drums-and-synthesizer-and-vocoder dance/move/beep sound.
