The Jungle Brothers - I Got U LP
Regular price $42.00
The Jungle Brothers embraced of a range of styles - including house music, Afrocentric philosophy, a James Brown fixation, and of course, the use of jazz samples. This remastered double-LP is pressed on color, audiophile-grade vinyl and includes additional tracks. Michael Small (Mike Gee), Nathaniel Hall (Afrika Baby Bam), and Sammy Burwell (DJ Sammy B). Known as the pioneers of the fusion of jazz, hip-hop, and house music, they were the first hip-hop group to collaborate with a house-music producer. The trio released their debut album, Straight out the Jungle, in July 1988. Their hip-house club hit single, "I'll House You" was added to the album in late-1988 reissues. Fostered by Kool DJ Red Alert, the Jungle Brothers success would pave the way for de la Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, and eventually, the Native Tongues collective that they founded.
