Quality Control (New 7")Jurassic 5
Label: Get On Down
Release Date: 3/17/3015
Catalog #: GET 749EP
"These two songs, off Jurassic 5's stellar debut full-length from 2000, perfectly showcase the disciplined hip-hop fun that this six-man group is known for around the world. Featuring two DJs and producers (Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark) and four MCs (Chali 2na, Zaakir/Soup, Akil and Marc 7), these disparate minds combined powerfully as one, rocking unison lyrical lines and tag-team verses over deftly funky music. Originally heard as a hugely popular radio promo for California's famed Wake Up Show in the mid-1990s, the song 'Quality Control' was expertly expanded for the group's Interscope debut, with a pimp-strut beat and a relaxed, live feel. Alternating tag-team lines and an extended four-man unison chorus combine to flaunt an indie ethos that also gained them mainstream appeal. 'Big-hole' 45 pressing on black vinyl, with a 7-inch sized artwork replication of the original 'Quality Control' single jacket."
