Release Notes:

The Ragga Twins are the link between UK dancehall
reggae, jungle and hip-hop. This is a retrospective
of their classic (and now very rare) early tracks
produced by Shut Up and Dance at the start of the

The Ragga Twins (alongside producers PJ and Smiley,
AKA Shut Up and Dance) revolutionised UK dance
music at the start of the 1990s bringing Reggae and
Hip-Hop styles together to create Jungle. As drum
and bass approaches its 20th anniversary and as new
developments such as Grime, UK Garage - and most
recently Dubstep û create artists and producers who
continue to cite Jungle as a pivotal moment in the
UKs musical history, Ragga Twins Step Out,
chronicles one of the most important groups of this

The Ragga Twins (Deman Rockers and Flinty Badman)
began their careers as MCs for North LondonÆs
legendary Unity reggae sound system. The Ragga
Twins were born after Shut up and Dance sampled the
pairÆs introduction on a dancehall mix-tape and
then offered them a deal. At the height of rave
culture, The Ragga Twins found themselves playing
at raves up and down the country. With one album
(Reggae Owes Me Money) and a steady stream of
killer singles over the next couple of years the
Ragga TwinsÆ musical blueprint of basslines,
breakbeats and ragga defined Jungle music in the
years to come.

As well as a serious overview of The Ragga Twins
tracks with Shut Up and Dance, this album also
features the super-rare bonus tracks ôIron Ladyö
and ôHard Drugsö, dating back to their pre-Ragga
Twins, Dancehall days with the Unity Soundsystem.
The album comes with extensive sleeve-notes,
photographs and interviews. Essential!

ôRelive the early-90s Reggae-Rave Soundclash. High
speed dancehall chat, tough breakbeats and dub-
reggae spliced together to still-exhillarating
effectö Q

ôBefore dubstep and grime there was drum ænÆ bass,
before that there was jungle and before that The
Ragga Twins. A brilliant retrospective.ö Guardian
