Herbert Jeffrey Hancock (born April 12, 1940) is an American pianist, keyboardist, bandleader, composer and actor. Hancock started his career with Donald Byrd. He shortly thereafter joined the Miles Davis Quintet, where he helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section and was one of the primary architects of the post-bop sound. In the 1970s, Hancock experimented with jazz fusion, funk, and electro styles.
Sound System was the follow-up to Herbie's ground-breaking Grammy award winning album Future Shock, an album that had put him back in the limelight with it's imaginative mix of early 80s Hip Hop, Techno and World Beat. Hip Hop was a far different thing in the early 80s up to the early 90s, positive, vibrant and polyrhythmic, it brought new life to many artists that would seek it's influence. Sound -System is logical next step after Future Shock album. Using the very same techno-pop electronic rhythms and song structures, Hancock added at least two new things, which are doing this album more listenable. First, he made the sound a bit heavier, even using rock elements in some places. The opening song Hardrock (which isn't hard rock or even rock at all for sure) is Rockit analogue with much heavier sound and even heavy metal guitar line added.
Sound System was part two of the Rockit Band Trilogy as it has come to be know. Future Shock, Sound System, And Perfect Machine) Hancock was primarily know for his Jazz Music until 1983 when the album Future Shock Skyrocketed him to fame in the Early MTV era. Rockit from Future shock became a huge hit and opened up the door for Sound System. Despite the fact that Sound System was almost a carbon copy of Future Shock it was innovative enough on it's own to continue with the formers popularity. The following year Herbie was back in the studio with Bill Laswell to record the follow up to that album. As he was in the early 70's,Herbie was continually fascinated by how to combine the modern electronic/hip-hop sample/scratch oriented effects that interested him with the heavily Afrocentric variety of funk.
