Biography

The Latch Brothers is Mike D of the Beastie Boys, former Mary’s Danish bassist WAG (Chris Wagner), and tick (Kenny Salcido) - a former columnist for Grand Royal’s website. They composed five tracks for the Xbox game JSRF (Jet Set Radio Future).
The trio have also remixed tracks by Grand Royal recording artists Bran Van 3000, The Prunes and bs2000 - the side project of beastie boy Ad-Rock. The game’s developers showed Jet Set Radio Future to the trio, who then wrote songs specifically with the game’s concept in mind.

    Agreed, agreed. How come they haven't recorded more material? Their songs are incredibly "tight" and "pimpin'." For real.

    We need another Jet Set Radio game, with these guys on board. Their music was damn good.

    Latch Brothers arent part of the Sega sound team, its just Ad Rock and Mike D from the Beastie Boys. There's 1 or 2 other Latch Bros. remixes floating around out there. I just got the Fatboy Slim remix album and there was a "Mike D and Adrock" remix in there where they mention the Latch Brothers. That came out in '07 so they're not completely dead!

    Really need another Jet Set Game to bring these guys back together. Shame the developers have been split into different teams within Sega.

    Too epic for this world, like many of acts associated with Grand Royal.

    They really need to reform because these tracks are immense, and also another Jet Set Radio needs to be made!

    They were a temporary group formed specifically for the video game 'Jet Set Radio Future', so unless you've played it I doubt you would have.
