Jurassic 5 are an alternative hip hop group who, after a promising start to their career in the early 90’s, split up in 2007 over creative differences. The group reformed in 2013 and “The Way We do It” is their first release since reforming. The single cleverly samples on the White Stripes “My Doorbell” from their 2005 album Get Behind Me Satan.


Time of The Season” was initially released as B-side in 1968 by English rock band The Zombies. The song charted a year later in 1969, at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, but the band had split by then. NME rated the song the number 35 song of the 60’s. Here, the classic 60’s anthem is given a contemporary remix that doesn’t deviate too far from the original by Los Angeles production duo dveloped.
