Short intro

Rockit is a composition recorded by jazz pianist Herbie Hancock and produced by Bill Laswell. Hancock released it as a single from his 1983 album Future Shock. The selection was composed by Hancock, producer Laswell, and synthesizerdrum machine programmer Michael Beinhorn. The track was driven by its deejay scratch style, performed primarily by DXT, and its music video created by Godley & Creme, which was put in high rotation on MTV. Rockit won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Instrumental Performance. Rockit - Herbie Hancock.

Herbie Hancock completely overhauled his sound and conquered MTV with his most radical step forward since the sextet days. He brought in Bill Laswell of Material as producer, along with Grand Mixer on turntables - and the immediate result was Rockit, which makes quite a post-industrial metallic racket. Frankly, the whole record is an enigma for all of its dehumanized, mechanized textures and rigid rhythms, it has a vitality and sense of humor that make it difficult to turn off. Herbie Hancock is a renown jazz musician who joined Miles Davis' band in 1963. Davis taught Hancock the importance of experimentation, and about how you can achieve excellent results by letting the people working with you experiment as well. And while jazz purists wanted no part of this electro classic, it created a fresh new sound thanks to the production of Bill Laswell and the turntable work of GrandMixer , who each got the green light from Hancock to do their thing. Laswell is a bass player who produced the track. Known for creating collision music, he brought elements. Herbie Hancock Rockit Stretched Version 1983 5:24. Rockit Grooverider remix 8:44.
