Despite there being six members of group, Jurassic 5, originally under moniker Fantastic 5, derived their name from friend's mother who referred to group as being more Jurassic than Fantastic. Comprise of rappers Charles Stewart, Dante Givens, Courtenay Henderson, Marc Stuart and DJs Mark Potsic and Lucas Mcfadden, group spawned out of two previous crews, Rebels of Rhythm and Unity Committee, at venue Good Life. Jurassic 5s debut came in 1995 with single Unified Rebelution on TVT Records and followed couple of years later with EP Jurassic 5. EP Spread Like Wildfire Of Its Novelty And Earned Fair Deal Of Praise From Critics And Music Listeners Alike. In time before Jurassic 5 made any more releases, both Cut Chemist and Chali 2na formed part of and recorded Latin hip hop group Ozomatli, and Cut Chemist kept especially busy recording several mixtapes and Album Future Primitive Soundsession. Groups ' Debut Album, Eponymously-title Jurassic 5, Arrived In 1998, Ahead Of Slot On Warped Tour And Tour Alongside Fiona Apple. Shortly afterwards, Jurassic 5 issued their sophomore Album Quality Control, sold over 300 000 copies, peaking at No. 43 on 200 and No. 23 on UK Album Chart. Due to bands ' proclivity for unconventionally hip-hop shows including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and warp Tour, Jurassic 5 was awarded with very large and diverse fan base. Power in Numbers group's third full-length got its release in October reaching No. 15 on Billboard 200. 2006 Mark Jurassic 5s fourth Album Feedback, departure of Cut Chemist who leaves to pursue his production interests, and eventually group disbandment. Reunion Come In 2013 With Performance At Coachella And Release Of Single Way We Do It In 2014. Jurassic 5 are one of those hip hop acts that almost can enjoy, thanks to their melodic, hook-driven approach. This is also principle reason why many hip hop aficionados often deride US groups for being too cheesy. But, in truth, J5 were serious players around turn of century, with their first three albums-Jurassic 5, Quality Control and Power in Numbers-particularly striking chords with hip hop fans. Hip hop can often be bit of anti-climax live, but Jurassic 5 know how to put on good show. Ive seen them few times, including Reading Festival and last year's Dour Festival, and their oldschool warmth harks back to pre-Golden Age hip hop like Sugarhill Gang. DJs Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark have real flair when performing live-when I last saw two DJs were giving full five to ten minute segment to showcase their scratching talents, and it was genuinely impressive. Four rappers each have different tone, which makes for varied, almost harmonise sound, especially when they rap in unison.
