Before we dip our toe into the ocean of Ragga Twins tales and influence on the widest possible realms of modern music, let us put things simply: The Ragga Twins are THE voice of dancefloor music. And have been for several generations…
Reggae to rave, jazz to dubstep, breaks, hardcore, jungle, drum & bass, house and everything in between… Flinty Badman and Deman Rockers have applied their vocal damage and party charm to every scene and style worth raving to.
Shows on every continent, over 1000 recordings, fans from Rio Ferdinand to Lilly Allen: From soundtracking a documentary on Margaret Thatcher to supporting Shabba Ranks and James Brown to working with Skrillex, The Ragga Twins’ inimitable, impossible-to-replicate style and tight balance of conscious and vibey lyricism is alluring, infectious and hype-boosted. Just as it has been since two young ragamuffins cut their teeth on London’s reggae soundsystem culture in 1982
‘Who Inspired You?’ is a retrospective across 2 full length albums, of some of the high times The Ragga Twins have shared with Aquasky & Passenger records.
Longtime collaborators with Aquasky, the Twins have had over 20 releases, features and collaborations with Passenger spanning 15 years.
