Jurassic 5's first release, the Jurassic 5 EP (1998), solidified them as a force to be reckoned with within the genre with hit tracks like "Concrete Schoolyard" and "Jayou." Two years later, J5 dropped Quality Control, which peaked at #43 on Billboard, achieved gold status, and introduced the group to the masses worldwide. Tracks like "Quality Control," "Jurass Finish First," and "Swing Set" became the group's signature sound. Power In Numbers spawned the smash hits "Day at the Races," featuring Big Daddy Kane, and "What's Golden," which led the band to their first late-night television performances on Conan O'Brien and David Letterman. In 2006, the group released Feedback (distributed and released worldwide via Interscope), which saw them hit #15 on the Billboard Top 200 during release week before amicably separating the following year. In 2013, the band reunited for Coachella, and then embarked on a yearlong string of sold-out concerts and festivals in Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. In 2014, the band announced its 20th Anniversary "Word Of Mouth Reunion Tour," which appropriately ignited the next chapter of Jurassic 5's legacy. The group delivered an intimate set of classics from their storied catalog to faithful fans across the country. After a short break for solo projects, the group is back and in top form for 2015, having announced tour dates in Australia, the US, Japan and Europe. In addition to the tour, J5's renaissance continues with the release of a full-length documentary feature later this year. For more information on J5, please visit Jurassic5.com.
The Reminders are a rare and remarkable musical duo seamlessly blending soulful sounds and roots music with insightful messages and thoughtful lyrics. The group consists of Brussels-born emcee Big Samir and Queens-born emcee/ vocalist Aja Black, a collective creative force that’s hard to beat. Big Samir weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French/English flow, displaying his street-smart credibility in both his lyrics and cool demeanor. This is beautifully complimented by Aja Black's confident delivery, diverse cadences, and unique vocal stylings. The two have an undeniable magical chemistry as they share more than lyrical abilities and stages; the couple shares a partnership in both music and life as Samir and Aja have been married for almost a decade.
Releasing their debut album 'Recollect' in 2008 and their latest “Born Champions” in 2012, the Reminders have been recognized and applauded for their work internationally through concerts, tours, music awards, TV and radio appearances, and their incredible and dedicated fan base. Having shared the stage with artists such as Les Nubians, Snoop Dogg, Fishbone, Barrington Levy, Nas, Mos Def, Big Boi, KRS-One, Rakim, K'Naan, and others, the Reminders have established a firm place in today's ever-evolving music scene, garnering international acclaim while paving a path all their own. Beyond performances and appearances, the duo is constantly and actively engaged with community organizations, schools, and universities delivering workshops, talks, and specially catered performances.
More than a shade of the same color that we see time and time again, The Reminders transcend the bounds of what is expected. Their stage presence and high energy shows leave crowds in awe the world over, allowing the duo to uplift and entertain all at once. Their unique mashup of razor sharp rhymes; raw, soulful vocals; and reggae-tinged hip hop beats form the perfect backdrop for their relevant and inspiring themes, leaving a lasting impression on listeners with audiences always wanting more. The Reminders take their hip hop foundation and move it beyond genre, time, and space to create a global musical experience that is classic and speaks to all those willing to participate.
