Wrongtom Meets The Ragga Twins - In Time
‘In Time’ is the new album from renegade roots and reggae producer Wrongtom and Hackney’s veteran breakbeat/jungle MC’s the Ragga Twins. ‘In Time’ strips back the jungle, D&B, garage sound that the Ragga Twins are recognised for pioneering today, to take you back to the ‘80s reggae and dancehall landscape where they started out.
Throughout the record, the Ragga Twins recall and explore a 30-year-long journey, where they uncover prescient lyrics and stories of their youth. Wrongtom provides the beats and riddims as a perfect setting for this celebraton of the dancehall and reggae scene.
Wrongtom met the legendary bredrin Flinty Badman and Deman in 2013, an inital performance at a festival ignited an unstoppable collaborative process and so followed the exchange of dub mixes, one- take recording sessions, and an old moth-eaten rucksack full of ‘80s lyrics. The album’s title ‘In Time’ references the amount of work that went into the project; the analogue production process; and the seismic lyrics of the Ragga Twins past and present. “I’ve been a fan of them since I was a teenager” Wrongtom recalls. “The idea behind the project was to bring people together who have reggae in their DNA but don’t strictly make it, so the Twins were the perfect fit for another Wrongtom Meets album”.
In his unique crossover career, multitalented Londoner Wrongtom had already become renowned as a purveyor of the underground to the masses through a stint as tour DJ and co-producer for Hard-Fi, and the hit Wrongtom Meets Roots Manuva reworks album ‘Duppy Writer’ which had brought him further profile and props as a remixer and collaborator.
