The Lafayette Afro Rock Band

Okay, let’s jump up into some break beat heaven. Lafayette Afro Rock Band was a funk band that formed in New York. In 1974 and 1975, they released albums Soul Makossa and Malik, respectively, which have been fertile ground for hip hop producers ever since they began to look beyond JB. The later album features “Darkest Light”. Once Public Enemy had sampled its horn and saxophone intro, it was open season. You gotta love that vocoder too.
