There ain’t no party like a Digital Underground party, ‘cuz the D.U. party don’t stop … and today, the Bay Area hip hop crew is having the hugest of parties at Myxer.com!
It’s a takeover of Humpty-Hump proportions: Digital Underground, best-known for their 1989 breakthrough first single, “The Humpty Dance,” has commandeered Myxer’s home page to promote their new single (and free ringtone), “Children of the Sun.” It’s fresh from D.U.’s latest album, Cuz A D.U. Party Don’t Stop, and it’s another salute to the band’s 1970s funk-inspired roots.

Now if you’re too young to remember “The Humpty Dance” and the brilliant debut of D.U., get your learn on: Born in the late 80â€™s, while hip-hop was consumed by the hardcore, noisy political rap of Public Enemy and the gangsta rap of N.W.A., Digital Underground sneaked out of Oakland with their bizarre, funky homage to Parliament-Funkadelic.
The group built most of their music from P-Funk samples and developed a similarly weird sense of style and humor. Most-known in the bunch is Humpty Hump — a ridiculous comical figure with a Groucho Marx nose and glasses and a goofy, stuttering voice — is the most famous, especially since he was immortalized on their breakthrough single, “The Humpty Dance.”
