Found­ing Mem­ber of Jur­as­sic 5 Joins Power­ful For­ce in UK Hip Hop for One Massive Night

Chali 2na — found­ing mem­ber and most famil­i­ar voice of legendary rap group Jur­as­sic 5 and one of the best loved MCs in Hip Hop his­tory — is set to deliv­er explos­ive, beat-heavy rhymes and clas­sic sin­galong tun­es at Elec­tric Brix­ton. Join­ing him for a rare live set is Krafty Kuts, one of the key pion­eers in the UK break­beat and bass move­ment, and inter­na­tion­ally renown turn­tab­list.

Through an illus­tri­ous 25 year-span­ning career, Chali 2na has col­lab­or­ated with a huge spread of top inter­na­tion­al stars includ­ing Black­alis­cious, Roots Manuva, Mos Def, Beenie Man, Rusko, Tip­pa Irie, Rizzle Kicks, K’naan, Fat­lip and many more. His open­ness to cross­ing bound­ar­ies and bring­ing his own unique take to dif­fer­ent gen­res is emblem­at­ic of his pos­it­ive and easy going nature.

Krafty Kuts has been con­tinu­ously immersed in beat cul­ture since form­ing his own b-boy break dan­cing crew in the late 80s. He has had his own record store chain, run labels, pro­moted crit­ic­al scene events, formed his own band Wicked City and per­formed to crowds of 40,000 along­side the biggest names in music from the Rolling Stones to The Prodigy.

When these two forces in Hip Hop come togeth­er, expect one hell of a live show. At Elec­tric Brix­ton, Chali 2na & Krafty Kuts will make the crowd go wild with their cha­ris­ma, undeni­able skill, and incred­ible music­al­ity.

Join­ing Chali 2na & Krafty Kuts will be the under­ground vet­er­an, pro­du­cer from Detroit Apol­lo Brown feat vet­er­an lyr­i­cist from Fres­no Cali­for­nia Plan­et Asia, the 12 piece hip-hop band Reneg­ade Brass Band and one of the UK’s top DJs Mr Thing. This stel­lar line-up makes this a very spe­cial an unmiss­able show.
