Zapp Band


Zapp is a soul and funk band formed in 1978 by brothers Roger Troutman, Larry Troutman, Lester Troutman, and Terry Troutman. Known for hits such as “More Bounce to the Ounce“, “Dance Floor” and “Computer Love“, and “I Wanna Be Your Man”, the group was a partial source of inspiration to West Coast hip-hop and G-funk, which came out of the hand clapped-drum beat styled funk of Zapp’s records, with Roger’s use of the talk box becoming another reason for the group’s impact and its success. In the past two decades, the band’s music had been very popular among lowrider enthusiasts and the Chicano/”Cholo” youth culture who appreciated Zapp’s music. Their tracks are still being used today, without remix or any alterations and are commonly danced to by pop performers. “More Bounce To The Ounce” stands out as the most used sample in Chicano rap and West Coast rap, being sampled in countless songs.
