Once described as "the rap equivalent of a rock & roll garage band," EPMD (stands for "Erick and Parrish Making Dollars") got into the hip-hop business not to spout its political agenda, but to have fun and get paid.

The styles of Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith's recordings as EPMD were among the best in hip-hop's underground during the late '80s and early '90s. Over the course of four albums, the duo's rhymes were nothing less than incredible, simply undervalued. With a feel for a good groove, EPMD created numerous hip-hop classics, including "It's My Thing," and "Rampage."
Jungle Brown
Jungle Brown
Hip-Hop Hybrid of styles that is Jungle Brown are sure to plant their flag deep with their debut album campaign, ‘Flight 314’.Already with an impressive history behind them, the collective have rallied up press from the likes of RWD mag, worked with Lewi White (think Ed Sheeran, Devlin) garnered plays from DJ Limelight and Target had several SBTV premieres and are hot off the back off some smashing shows at the world famous Jazz Café and London’s very own Kopperberg Festival.

Jungle Brown the four piece group of unique origins have come together to put out their second project as a team and this time round you can really sense that these boys are like no other.
Undefined by sound, just rooted in Hip-Hop’s honest open admirations and critiques of the world, Jungle Brown make being themselves sound fun. Mosik, A Boy Called Ric and Maear, all solo artists before forming the group alongside long-time producer Tony Bones have a sound and depth that can not only smash radio playlist here in the UK, but have something which is sure to be admired overseas.

Although with so much ground work behind them Jungle Brown are keen to emphasise, this is merely the beginning, and with that being said It’s easy to see why their names have been hot on the lips of many key industry figures.
