Newcleus is a pioneering electro and hip hop group from Brooklyn, New York, that was formed in the late 1970s. The group was founded by two brothers, Ben and Frank “Doc” Strange, along with their cousin, Cozmo D. The group was originally known as Positive Messenger, but changed their name to Newcleus in 1980.


Newcleus was known for their innovative use of electronic instruments and futuristic themes in their music. Their sound blended elements of hip hop, funk, and electro, making them an important influence on the emerging electro and hip hop scenes of the early 1980s.


In 1983, Newcleus released their debut album, “Jam on Revenge,” which featured the hit single “Jam on It.” The song was a major success, reaching #6 on the Billboard R&B charts and helping to establish Newcleus as one of the most popular and influential groups in the electro and hip hop scenes.


Newcleus went on to release several more albums in the 1980s, including “Space Is the Place” (1985) and “Next Generation” (1987). The group continued to experiment with new sounds and styles, incorporating elements of reggae and house music into their music.


Despite their influence and success, Newcleus faced challenges in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as the popularity of hip hop and electro began to wane. The group went on hiatus in the mid-1990s, but later reformed in the 2000s, releasing new music and performing live shows.


Today, Newcleus is remembered as an important and influential group in the history of hip hop and electronic dance music. Their music continues to be celebrated by fans today.
