This & That Tour
BAM x DERO x KLUMZY
In celebration of the This & That album release, Brooklyn’s legendary Jungle Brothers MC Afrika Baby Bam (USA), Graz City’s benchmark Tiefparterre Records turntablist Mr.Dero (Austria) and London’s fearless freestyle acrobat Klumzy Tung (UK) combine forces to bring their inimitable style to a dancefloor near you this winter.
Currently in radio rotation - as well as charting - with their acclaimed collaboration and album title track This & That and following a string of unforgettable shows together, the three globe-trotting stalwarts are psyched up and ready to tour the icy roads of Europe!
Dropping hip hop classics, drum 'n' bass anthems, party lyrics, conscious thought, jaw dropping freestyles, state of the art turntablism, and a general 'anything could happen' energy, they leave packed-out audiences sweaty and smiley. Just try not to shake your arse. We give you about 30 seconds...!

Bam aka Afrika Baby Bam - No less than a legend. As a founding member of the famous New York rap crew Jungle Brothers, part of the Native Tongues collective, he helped pioneer a movement whose impact on hip hop culture can still be felt today. Together with fellow artists A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Queen Latifah and Black Sheep, the JBeez started a positive, good-humoured and conscious counter-movement against the trash-talking, gun-toting, gold chain-wearing bad boy rapper norm. The Jungle Brothers, members of Afrika Bambaataa's world famous Zulu Nation, were the first (and arguably the best) rap group to fuse Jazz, Hip-Hop and House music into a heady brew that's rocked a thousand parties the world over.
Dero aka Mr.Dero - The Austrian hip hop veteran has been spinning, producing and organizing club nights for over eighteen years now and is the living incarnation of a dancefloor shaker. A founding member of independent label Tiefparterre Records, he runs „Butterbar“, one of the most successful nights on Austria's club scene. His true turntablism skills and strong feel-good sound never fail to win a crowd over. With his partners Klumzy and Bam or alongside the likes of Dj Vadim, Beardyman, Jstar, JFB and dub legend Mad Professor, his quality productions and numerous collaborations have earned him a globally-respected reputation.
Klumzy aka Klumzy Tung - Having risen to prominence in the UK as a humorous social commentator with cult internet hits Little England and E4’s Web Heroes (alongside former GobFathers partner Beardyman), he spent the last 5 years touring Europe, writing and recording. Alongside Dero, his reputation got a deserved bump when their song Headscrews featured as the soundtrack to worldwide hit TV series Skins. Recent solo album Happy Accidents surprised and impressed as he expanded his freestyle and MC skills to encompass a complete singer/songwriter collection. Deftly blending hip hop and drum 'n' bass influences with melodic guitar work and trademark thoughtful humour, the LP received airplay from radio stations across the globe, including BBC Radio 1, FM4 Radio and Radio Eins Berlin.
