Who´s better to explain what is electronic jazz music than Herbie Hancock, one the key pieces of Miles Davis band, Herbie´s compositions have being sampled several times (Cantaloupe Island by US3, or Bringing down the birds by Deelite are some examples) and, of course, his album Future Shock composed with Bill Laswell with a deep influence of hip hop, a step forward in his jazz career . Future Shock is a book written by the futurist Alvin Toffler in 1970. In the book, Toffler defines the term "future shock" as a certain psychological state of individuals and entire societies. His shortest definition for the term is a personal perception of "too much change in too short a period of time". Technology came to our life and Hancock was the first jazz musician that understood it, use it and dive in it. Here you are some diferent genres with a twist of jazz: Idm, drum´n´bass, post rock, nujazz, 2step, garage, hip hop, house, e-funk...
