About DJ Kool Herc
DJ Kool Herc is a Jamaican-born DJ who is credited as originating hip-hop music in the Bronx, New York City. His playing of hard-funk records of the sort typified by James Brown was an alternative both to the violent gang culture of the Bronx and to the nascent popularity of disco in the 1970s. In response to the reactions of his dancers, Kool Herc in 1972 began to isolate the instrumental portion of the record which emphasized the drum beat—the break—and switch from one break to another to yet another.
