Afro Funk Explosion!


The Lafayette Afro Rock Band, aka Ice, were an American Funk band formed in Roosevelt, Long Island, New York and relocated to Paris, France in 1970 where they recorded with legendary French producer Pierre Jaubert. Almost unknown in their native United States during their recording career, but have since become a huge cult sensation and are not universally celebrated as one of the most sampled bands ever by the biggest names in Rap, Hip-Hop, and EDM. The Lafayette Afro Rock Band has been sampled by Public Enemy, Jay Z, LL Cool J, Wreckx 'n' Effect, Ice Cube, Gorillaz, Biz Markie, N2Deep, The Beatnuts, Kruder & Dorfmeister Pizzicato Five, DJ Q-Bert, and Flying Lotus, just to name a few. The Double CD set "Afro Funk Explosion!" features the best and most sampled tracks from the Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Ice, as well as a few tracks from some of their other pseudonyms, Cripsy & Co and Captain Dax. All of these recordings are long out of print and sell for big money on eBay, but are finally available and have been digitally re-mastered from the original tapes. It's time for the world to discover what the Hip-Hop, Funk, and Afro Funk communities have already discovered!
