The Jungle Brothers, consisting of Mike "Gee" Small, Sammy Burwell and Afrika Baby Bambaataa (Nathaniel Hall), members of New York's legendary "Native Tongues" posse, were one of the most innovative crews of hip-hop.

Straight Out the Jungle (1988) was possibly the first example of full-fledged jazz-hop fusion.

Done By The Forces Of Nature (1989) was even better, one of the most positive and spiritual works of hip-hop, and as phantasmagoric as the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique, although very mellow by the standards of hip-hop.

J Beez Wit The Remedy (1993), featuring new member Torture (aka Sensational), experimented with instrumental tracks and abstract noise.

Perhaps searching for the commercial success that had always eluded them, the Jungle Brothers began releasing mediocre albums in all sorts of conventional styles: Raw Deluxe (1997), V.I.P. (2000), All That We Do (2002).

Sensational (former Jungle Brothers' member Torture) debuted solo with Loaded With Power (1997), offering a unique combination of nightmarish, stoned, warped, non-linear rapping over lo-fi beats. Subsequent albums repeated the same trick with far less genius: Corner the Market (WordSound, 1998), Heavyweighter (Matador, 2000), Get on My Page (Ipecac, 2001), Natural Shine (Wordsound, 2003). Parts Unknown (Quatermass) was a collaboration with dub-hop guru Spectre.

Acid & Bass (Wordsound, 2009) was a collaboration between Sensational and Spectre.
