In the 1980's electro funk hip hop group The Jonzun Crew preached a science fiction-based message of Afro-futurism. Pack Jam (Look Out For The OVC) was the first single of their 1983 Lost In Space debut album on Tommy Boy Records. OVC is a reference to Sun Ra - a pioneer of Afro-futurism. The OVC was a visual synthesizer that Sun Ra was known for playing, that merged music with visual effects. The Jonzun Crew played all their synthesizers live, which gave them a unique sound in the new age of sequencers. And despite the use of drum machines, most of the albums songs used a life drummer as the main drum track. In 1990, Jonzun Crew released their third and final album Cosmic Love. In the seven years the group pioneered electro and hip-hop, meanwhile group member Maurice Starr also discovered and produced New Edition and New Kids On The Block, and produced records for ConFunkShun, Tom Browne and others.
