Chali 2NA

Chali 2NA

The Los Angeles, California baritone rapper best known as Chali 2NA has been referred to as the ambassador for Jurassic 5 – though he is well-known for being a member of J5, he has appeared alongside many artists and on a variety of albums and compilations.

He also was a founding member of Ozomatli, and though he is no longer an official part of the group, he has appeared on a number of their subsequent albums.

Prior to those two groups, he was a member of the group Unity Committee.

Cut Chemist

Cut Chemist

As well as being one of the ablest solo turntablists on the globe, Cut Chemist is also a member of two highly rated crews: underground rap kings Jurassic 5 and the Latin-funk band Ozomatli. He came up with the L.A. rap group Unity Committee, and debuted on wax with the B-side of UC’s 1993 single “Unified Rebelution.” The track, “Lesson 4: The Radio,” was a tribute to and continuation of Double D and Steinski’s seminal hip-hop collage masterpieces “Lessons 1-3,”and included nods to Indeep, Bob James, Spoonie Gee, and Dan Ackroyd.

Soon after the record’s release, Unity Committee came together with another group, Rebels of Rhythm, to form Jurassic 5. Cut Chemist kept quite busy with the group, contributing “Lesson 6” to the group’s eponymous EP and producing the entire record. He also delved into remixing (DJ Shadow, Liquid Liquid) and outside work (scratching for Less Than Jake; appearing with another Los Angeles group, Ozomatli). In mid-1997, Cut Chemist recorded his album debut, Live at the Future Primitive Sound Session, with Shortkut of Invisibl Skratch Piklz. His tracks have also appeared on two seminal turntablist compilations, Return of the DJ, Vol. 1 and Deep Concentration. – John Bush

He left Jurassic 5 in 2006.

Envy Alo

Envy Alo

Formed in the fall of 2015, Envy Alo has drawn comparisons to jazz-funk trio Soulive (drummer Alan Evan’s mastered the band’s debut EP “One Time”) and the concise, catchy funk recipe of Vulfpeck. The sound is built on the syncopated foundation of keyboardist Aaron Pettine, bassist Karl Summers, and drummer Nate Etter. The three create an environment ripe for the chops and bright tones of guitarist Kevin Hinder and saxophonist Kevin Supina, fine-tuned in the halls of James Madison University’s School of Music and Manhattan School of Music respectively. In 2018 the band added singer Callie Morocco, whose sultry lead vocals add yet another element to the band’s unique live sound.
