1. Sick As Sin feat. Skamma
2. Predatory Control Freeks
3. Freight Dub

For their 21st release, Rag & Bone have pulled out all the stops. Welsh producer Stagga bursts onto the dubstep scene with a refreshingly new take on things. With a history in hip-hop and coming fresh from a debut release on Rossi B & Luca’s Rudeez imprint of ‘Jacqueline/Policeman Get Hype’, Stagga serves up 3 indisputable slabs of wonkiness.

Sick As Sin’ is the big hitter with it’s centrepiece phrase “Dropping you out like a bong of smack and waking you up like a bong of crack” courtesy of the vocal talents of Skamma: it’s got big tune written all over it.

On the flip ‘Predatory Control Freeks’ is a different matter altogether. Wise utterings on the sinister intentions of the new world architects drift in and out of an eerie soundtrack. Meanwhile ‘Freight Dub’ gets deep on a smokers vibe. It’s swathes of spooky synths blend perfectly with some hypnotic banter.

Stagga has an extensive background producing hip-hop and was the founding member of British turntablists group Optimas Prime who went on to win ‘Best Hip Hop Act 2001’  at the Welsh music foundation awards. He also more recently played an important role with off-kilter hip-hop outfit Dead Residents who got sizeable exposure on the radio.

Fans of DZ, Starkey, Raffertie, Skream, Joker and Rustie will like this.

These tracks have already seen early support from the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs (Radio 1), Starkey (Planet Mu) and Sub FM DJs with more to follow.
