Description
As a group, Herman Kelly & Life had a relatively short life span. Releasing only a single album, Percussion Explosion!, in 1978, the Miami-based band didn't have as much immediate success as some of their contemporaries. But with a single, inescapable song, they managed to forever become a part of music history. Their funky, upbeat single "Dance to the Drummer's Beat" became one of the most recognizable and frequently used breaks in hip-hop history, used in songs by legendary artists like Run-DMC, Public Enemy, N.W.A., 2 Live Crew, Whodini and DJ Shadow, and was featured in the famed Ultimate Breaks & Beats series.

Get On Down is proud to present Percussion Explosion! in a newly refurbished edition, featuring "Dance to the Drummer's Beat" plus other hit singles "Who's the DJ" and "Do the Funky Hambone," with a new digital transfer remastered from the original analog tapes.
