Jungle Brothers have been around since hip hop's Golden Era and are the longest running Hip Hop group in the world. They continue to adapt creatively to the changing soundscapes of both hip hop and DJ culture. Afrika Baby Bam and Mike G have been experimenting since they first appeared (then with DJ Sammy B) on the NYC hip hop scene with the release of the ground-breaking 'Straight Out The Jungle' in 1988. Their raw, energetic debut included "I'll House You" a bona fide international hit. A prototype for later envelope-pushing crews like the Wu-Tang Clan, the Jungle Brothers were among the first groups to aggregate a like-indeed posse of fellow rappers that became the legendary Native Tongues: De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Monie Love and Black Sheep.
Free to sample and manipulate in a more sophisticated setting, the JBs mixed up breaks and beats that recalled the Bronx block parties of their youth, incorporating elements from jazz, soul, and funk classics. The resulting album, Done By The Forces Of Nature, ranks with other masterpieces of the era like the Beastie Boys Paul's Boutique.
Currently, Jungle Brothers continue to tour the globe bringing the block party to every stop along the way which now leads us to the new album – ‘Keep It Jungle’ - to be released in September 2019. The first single ‘YEAH’ will be released Midnight 24 May 2019 - JUNGLE BROTHERS 2019
