My friends, the Jungle Bros, have reunited. We did groundbreaking work together on their third album and they want me on this one also.
Thanks to stupid, uninsured and unexpected medical emergencies late last year and more in the first half of this year, I'm in a bind with my gear hocked to the limit. With your support, I could save that gear and have some travel cash to get to where the JBs are.
I still revere the talent and music of these three guys and the opportunity to work with them yet again, to make and advance hiphop *again* with them, it sounds cheesy but it's a rare chance to live that dream yet again.
We've already made a rough start to work off the rust and get their lyrics flowing, but to take the music beyond simple loops and samples using real instruments, I'll need that equipment and eventually a little travel cash to get to where the Jungle Brothers are.
The plan is to generate three albums: a more "commercial," Native Tongues-style Jungle Brothers album, a more "out," Crazy Wisdom Masters/Jay Beez Wit' Da Remedy-style advanced hiphop record, and......a 120+bpm club banger album that starts with the hiphouse style of "I'll House You" and updates and advances it to the current state of the art and beyond.
Here's an interview: http://unheard78.blogspot.com/2011/08/david-williams-talks-about-jungle.html
That's the very beginning of one of the first tracks for the NEW Jungle Brothers record, either the "hiphop" record or the "Voodoo Slinky" project.
