Jurassic 5 formed in the early nineties and quickly became known as one of the soulful and socially aware Hip Hop groups of the LA underground scene. They weren’t throwback or old school, but they embodied a nostalgic sound that was also at once fresh and has remained the benchmark for original Hip Hop ever since.

The group gave us timeless tracks such as ‘Quality Control’, ‘What’s Golden’ , ‘Day at The Races’ and ‘Thin Line’ featuring Nelly Furtado before they parted ways in 2007. Although the band was out of sight they were certainly not out of mind and their lore grew on soundtracks, and in video games. After a huge sold out tour in early 2014 this distinctive six-piece are back and showing us what Hip Hop should sound like.

“We waited seven years for a gig this good, and we'd do it again … ‘If You Only Knew’, ‘High Fidelity’, ‘Thin Line’, and ‘Freedom’. Throw in a full band dance routine and close the night with ‘What’s Golden' and what you have is THE PERFECT GIG. No encore needed when you end on a high like that, there’s nowhere else to go.” – TIMEOUT

Jurassic 5 have released their first song since the reunion, ‘The Way We Do It’. It features production from the late Heavy D and a sample of the White Stripes Get Behind Me Satan single ‘My Doorbell’.

The full 6-member tribe will be bringing the ‘J5’ party to Australia for a HUGE national tour!
