Review of Jurassic 5 concert

I went to see the J5 MC’s @ Ancienne Belgique, Brussels, Belgium last Sunday. It was everything I expected it to be: straight, honest hip hop without the posing, blingbling and bitches. The way hip hop is meant to be: making statements and having fun on good music.The really rocked the place, and everyone in the hall was rocking with them. They even interrupted their show, to force one drunk irritating guy out of the building: beautiful ! Most bands wouldn’t even give a damn.

Man, they really have something going on on stage. With the five of them rapping, and Nu Mark spinning the decks, it is really exciting to watch them perform. Not to say it is really hard to stand still to their flow & beats 🙂

Too bad they don’t perform in Belgium very often…

Jurassic 5 performing in Brussels

Today I am a happy man.

When ordering tickets for the concerts of Sergent Garcia (at the AB) and Maceo Parker (at the Blue Note Records Festival – All That Jazz? in Ghent), my eye fell on a simple entry in the list stating that no other than the J5 MC’s were coming to the Ancienne Belgique. Fantastic, of course, especially ’cause I was just recently going on about how they seldom come to Europe, let alone Belgium.

So now they’re finally coming 🙂 Needless to say, I ordered my tickets instantaneously (and at €20, that’s hella-cheap ! The concert of The Roots is €10 more expensive!). Thanks to their new album, no doubt, they will pass through Europe. It’s called Feedback, and together with this newness they also upgraded their web site a bit, which was kindof needed as well 😉 Production of the album is no longer in the capable hands of Cut Chemist – as he is aiming to go solo – but producer/DJ Nu-Mark will take this one on his account. I’m pretty confident it won’t suck. 🙂

Anyway, got some work to do. Enjoy good music !

Jurassic 5 Announces Their New Album

To be released in Q1 of 2006.
If you don’t know these guys, make sure you do real fast: Jurassic 5 [ ]

I quite honestly think of them as one the best hip-hop formations of all time, together with the likes of De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and Arrested Development.
