ragga twins - Ragga Twins Step Out

It's a testament to just how sought-after this material is that until very recently a cd copy of the Ragga Twins classic album "Reggae Owes Me Money" would set you back a good £60 on cd, with the vinyl edition fetching simply outrageous dollar - if you were lucky enough to find anyone willing to part with a copy in the first place. This inspired collection sees the Soul Jazz crew at their very best - at long last providing a new generation of listeners with access to a seminal catalogue, bridging together elements of proto jungle/Hardcore, dancehall, ragga and hip hop in an inimitable and hugely influential style. Spread across the two cd's you'll find 18 classics and some remixes, including the mighty 'Spliffhead', 'Rudeboy', 'Shine Eye' and 'Hooligan 69' (albeit not in its infinitely superior original version - guess some samples will never get cleared!). If you're interested in and follow the Hardcore Continuum, these tracks represent something of a milestone in the very evolution of British Dance culture, emerging at a point in the early nineties where Jungle represented something truly subversive and experimental, combining daring production techniques with a vibrant frame of reference that operated completely under the radar. This was music pressed up on the lowest quality vinyl, often with no artwork and always with little to no distribution, with radioplay restricted to the Pirate radio stations that would soon define the movement itself. The Ragga Twins (Deman Rockers and Flinty Badman together with production crew Shut Up And Dance) might well have represented the more public-facing end of the scene - but their material remains among the best and most influential it had to offer, with drum & bass, Grime, Garage, 2-Step and Dubstep slowly growing from the ground they helped prepare. It's a shame that so much of this material has been impossible to get hold of in recent years, but once again Soul Jazz must be commended for carefully restoring and re-packaging an essential piece of UK urban history - all that's left is for you to dip into these amazing recordings and show your respect. Absolutely essential material - and an absolute must.
