  • Future Shock

    While Herbie Hancock had joined forces with the hit-writing Rod Temperton on Lite Me Up, it proved to be his work with avant-garde bassist/producer Bill Laswell that produced his enormously influential crossover hit “Rockit.” Hancock makes a habit out of busting open jazz in ways that no one could have expected, and on Future Shock he incorporates DJ scratching and post-industrial clamor into his electro-funk fusion. With the help of keyboardist Michael Beinhorn, Grand Mixer D.ST, Latin percussionist Daniel Ponc┼Ż, former Miles Davis guitarist Pete Cosey, and reggae great Sly Dunbar on drums, he shocked the future of music. “Rockit” was so influential it became a breakdancing phenomenon, one of the most successful music videos ever, and won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance. It also used hip-hop before it had started reaching a mass market, and is largely responsible for popularizing DJing.
