Asphalt Jungle's Biography

Having a long history in recording/producing albums together and inspired by the early '90s London Acid Jazz and British Electronica Revolution, Asphalt Jungle scored a top 20 Billboard hit with This Is Acid Jazz; The Best of Acid Jazz Vol. 2 on Instinct Records. They also produced a dance remix for the hit song "Tubthumping" by the band Chumbawamba on Republic Records. Together they wrote the theme music for MTV's Road Rules, as well as producing music for many other shows such as MTV's Tough Enough, ABC's Making The Band, Extra, and the Keanu Reeves film The Watcher.





Asphalt Jungle's first release, Electro Ave, was a culmination of experience and desire. It incorporated funky big beats with metallic percussive guitar riffs and featured the MTV Road Rules theme, "Witchcraft." The album included a bonus remix of "Witchcraft" by DJ Soul Slinger and DJ Wally of Liquid Sky. It also contained the track "Tinsel Town," which was heard by millions of Making The Band viewers. With their own unique style, Asphalt Jungle blended live raw guitar tones with fast paced bottomless grooves.
