Wrongtom Meets The Ragga Twins 'In Time' (Tru Thoughts)
There’s a lot of interest these days in the UK’s reggae soundsystem culture of the 80s, which spawned the Ragga Twins as well as the likes of Daddy Freddy, Tippa Irie and a good section of the jungle scene. Producer Wrongtom, probably best known for his Roots Manuva collabs, is one of the finest revivalists of the 80s production style – so this LP, which takes the Twins back to their roots, is a marriage made in soundboy heaven. It’s a flashback to the era when London’s FM frequencies crackled with a thousand ragga and roots pirates full of swaggering pride, songs and jump-around digital sound. Original it’s not, but it’s a trip in a time machine worth taking.
