Jurassic 5, one of the most widely respected and innovative names in hip-hop, return to the UK in support of their latest album Feedback and play a sold-out date at the UEA, Norwich, on Monday from 7.30pm.
Feedback is a real tour de force for the LA five-piece, showcasing not only the vocal diversity of the four emcees Chali 2Na, Akil, Marc 7 and Zaakir, but also the breathtaking use of beats and samples driven by DJ/producer Nu-Mark.
Fans have grown to expect the unexpected from a band that have never been afraid to experiment or collaborate. The band's shows are renowned as one of the most exciting and inventive on the whole live circuit. Nu-Mark's use of a turntable strapped around his neck and a Fisher Price-style sampler provided the talking points on their 2004 UK tour and fans can expect more surprises on this tour.
When Jurassic 5 first emerged, on their self-financed 1997 EP, they were a shot in the arm for hip-hop with their combination of unique voices, novel approach to samples from all areas and politically-conscious lyrics. That EP became the basis for 1998's Jurrasic 5 album with 2000's Quality Control and 2002's Power in Numbers soon following, to equal critical acclaim.
