420 Around the world
420, 4:20 eller 4/20 er et kode ord i cannabis miljøet, for at ryge cannabis, der stammer fra 1971 i Californien, hvor en gruppe unge mødtes kl 4:20 eller 16.20 for at ryge sammen.
Med tiden er datoen 4/20 blevet en folkefest hvor cannabis / hampe planten bliver fejret rundt omkring i hele verden, naturligvis også i Danmark!

420 Festival er en platform for alle der har interesse i cannabis/ hampe planten som helhed. Hampe planten kan bruges til enormt mange gode ting og flere nye muligheder dukker hele tiden op i takt med at forskningen på området er i stærk vækst i disse år.
Planten kan eks. bruges til at lave bionedbrydelig plastik som kan være et af svarene på vores jordklodes nuværende problemer med plastik og mikro plastik. Den kan bruges til miljøvenlig isolering til huse, papirfremstilling, slidstærkt tøj, biobrænsel, kosttilskud og meget meget mere. Hampe planten kan nogle steder på jorden dyrkes flere gange om året og kan derfor spare tid og plads og være et miljørigtigt alternativ til produktioner med f.eks. træ der tager flere år at gro. Kort sagt er det en plante der er værd at snakke om og ikke mindst fejre.

Artisterne

Jungle Brothers
Legendariske Jungle Brothers, kendt fra samarbejder med bl.a Queen Latifa, De La Soul og A Tribe Called Quest, og som igennem tiden har spillet til udsolgte koncerter i københavn, kommer til 420 Festival 2019 i Den Grå Hal.
Mike Gee (født Michael Small; Harlem, NY), DJ Sammy B (født Sammy Burwell; Harlem, NY), and Baby Bam (født Nathaniel Hall; Brooklyn, NY) dannede sammen Jungle Brothers i midten af 80’erne og begyndte deres karriere hos Idler som var et amerikansk hip-hop lable oprettet som et datterselskab af Warlock Records i 1986 og blev drevet af Tony D.
Her udgav trioen deres debut album “Straight Out the Jungle” i juli 1988.
Albummets afrocentriske stil åbnede døren for Jungle Brothers til the Native Tongue Posse, som var et hiphop kollektiv dannet af legenden Afrikaa Bambaataa, og som inkluderede Queen Latifah og senere hen De La Soul og A Tribe Called Quest. Albummets mest kendte nummer var “I’ll House You”, som var et samarbejde med house produceren Tod Terry og var et tidligt experiment i genren der senere blev kendt som hip-house.

Efter deres udgivelse af “Straight Out the Jungle” blev Jungle Brothers signeret af Warner Bros. Records, hvor gruppen udgav “Done by the Forces of Nature” i november 1989.
Herefter gik der nogle år inden de vendte tilbage med deres 3. album i juni 1993, kaldet “J Beez Wit the Remedy”.

Jungle Brothers blev en del af hiphop organisationen kaldet Ill Crew Universal (ICU) som udgav verdensomspændende albums og støttede uafhængige hiphop artister. Organisationen voksede sig meget stor og kunne i perioder tælle op til 50.000 medlemmer, heriblandt Xzibit, Gang Starr, X-Clan, The Alkaholiks, Jurassic 5, Black Eyed Peas, A Tribe Called Quest, UMCÂs, Paris, Hieroglyphics, The Coup, og mange flere.

Jungle Brothers 5. album “V.I.P.” blev produceret af Alex Gifford fra Propellerheads og, under produktionen, tilføjede de vokal styling til Propellerheads numre “Take California (And Party)” og “You Want It Back”.

I 2004 samarbejdede Jungle Brothers med den britiske producer Mr On, for at producere “Breathe (Don’t Stop)”
Nummeret var en kombination af “Breathe and Stop” af Q-Tip fra A Tribe Called Quest, sammen med en sampling af Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough”.

Jungle Brothers udgav i 2005 et greatest hits dobbel album med klassiske remixes og sjældenheder kaldet “This Is…”, som indkluderede remixes af The Wiseguys, Urban Takeover, Natural Born Chillers og Stereo MC’s.

General Levy (Official)
En af de absolut vildeste mc’er du kan opleve!!! “The Incredible” -General Levy er helt i sin egen klasse -en sand ekvilibrist på sit felt. Han bliver anset for at være en af de vigtigste UK MC’er der har været med til at udvikle genrene dancehall og jungle på den britiske scene til hvad de er i dag. Glæd dig til et energisk show når General Levy indtager scenen til 420 Festival 2019.

General Levy blev født d. 28. April 1971, i Park Royal, i London. Han voksede op i Harlesden og Wembley i nordvest London, hvor hans interesse for musik startede med inspiration i dancehall fra sit lokalområde.
Allerede som 12 årig begyndte han med at skrive sange og som 14 årig startede han sit første sound system med sine venner, kaldet Third Dimension.

Hans første store udgivelser var med det uafhængige pladeselskab Fashion Records, som signerede en distributionsaftale med London Records for en genudgivelse af tracks han havde indspillet tidligere med musikproducerne Lloyd Crucial og Robbo Ranx (senere kaldet BBC 1xtra) som havde hittet på den britiske dancehall undergrundsscene.

Levy‘s største og mest kendte nummer “incredible” var med i filmen Ali G Indahouse, hvor omverdenen for alvor fik øje på ham.

Han igennem årene samarbejdet med et væld af sangere og bands som da han bl.a. var med på nummeret “Only God Can Judge Me” med R&B sangeren Mark Morrison.

Eksempelvis samarbejdede han også med Madness’ sanger Suggs på hans album The Three Pyramids Club, på nummeret “Girl”, i 1998.

General Levy har arbejdet med mange forskellige sound systems i de sene ‘80’ere og tidlige ‘90’ere som f.eks. Java One Love og Tippertone Sound.

Alene i 2018 har han samarbejdet på udgivelser med Chase & Status, Fedde Le Grand og Spragga Benz.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION of 420 Festival 2019

420 Festival 2019
Location: Den Grå Hal, Sinsemilla Hemp Shop, Christianias Jazzklub & Børneteater & Operaen Christiania

420 Around the world
420, 4:20 or 4/20 is a slang in the cannabis culture for the consumption of cannabis, derived from California in 1971, where five high school students from the school San Rafael met up at 4:20 PM to smoke together.
April 20 has become an international counterculture holiday, where people gather to celebrate the cannabis plant all around the world, of course also in Denmark.

420 Festival is a platform for anyone who has an interest in the cannabis / hemp plant as a whole. The hemp plant can be used for a variety of many good things and several new opportunities are constantly emerging as research in the area is growing strongly these years.
The plant can, for example, be used to make biodegradable plastics which can be one of the answers to our earth’s current problems with plastic and micro plastic. It can be used for environmentally friendly insulation for houses, paper making, durable clothing, biofuel, dietary supplements and much more.
The hemp plant can be grown several times a year in some places on the Earth and can therefore save time and space and be an environmentally friendly alternative to productions with eg. tree that takes several years to grow.. In short, it is a plant that is worth talking about and not least to celebrate.

420 Festival in Denmark
The celebrations has grown a lot this year in Denmark, and has become a whole 1-day festival at Christiania, and will be held both outside the Sinsemilla Hemp Shop in the daytime, at the main venue Den Grå Hal in the nighttime, and at the venues Christianias Jazzklub & Børneteater & Operaen Christiania late at night.

Jungle Brothers debut album Straight Out the Jungle was published here in july 1988.
The album’s Afrocentric slant gained the Jungle Brothers entry into the Native Tongue Posse, a loose collective formed by hip-hop legend Afrikaa Bambaataa, including Queen Latifah (and, later, De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest).
The album’s most notoriuos track was “I’ll House You,” a collaboration with house producer Todd Terry and an early experiment in what later became known as hip-house

After the release of “Straight Out the Jungle” the Jungle Brothers moved on to be signed by Warner Bros. Records, where they published “Done by the Forces of Nature” in November ‘89.
In June 1993 they published their 3rd album named “J Beez Wit the Remedy”.

Jungle Brothers involved themselves with an emerging Hip Hop organization called Ill Crew Universal (ICU) which released worldwide compilation albums and supported independent Hip Hop artists.
