Raggasonic's back with a bang.

Sampler

Legendary French deejay and singer duo Raggasonic is back after a ten year hiatus, where Big Red and Daddy Mory wanted to focus on their solo careers. Reputedly “everyone” has over the years asked them when they would link again, and apparently the pressure to record together became too hard.

Raggasonic 3'Raggasonic 3' is their highly anticipated third album and it picks up just where 'Raggasonic 2' left off 15 years ago, and the new album is a natural follow-up and happily enough it offers more of the same good old Raggasonic.

It might have to do with world-renowned French producer Frenchie, who has been instrumental in shaping Raggasonic’s sound. He’s fortunately onboard again, but he’s not sole producer, and DJ Vadim, Animal Son, Central Massive and Young Veterans have also contributed with material to the album.

All riddims are brand new, except for Dans La Rue, backed by Frenchie’s Eek-A-Mouse-inspired Skateland Killer riddim, and offers a variety of styles and directions, including hip-hop, roots reggae, dancehall and electronica.

Raggasonic has never shied away from tough lyrical content, and on 'Raggasonic 3' the duo sings about the tough realities facing many people today, especially the younger generation. And they do it with passion and burning intensity.

This is an urban and contemporary effort, and even though it might not sell double gold, as the debut album did, but Raggasonic will hopefully appeal to a much wider audience today than 15 years ago. Don’t let the language be a barrier, and check out this solid album.
