We continue our series on Home Grown Icons - British black pioneers from the world of sport, business, acting, and music

Our Home Grown Icon this week is ........ The Ragga Twins

The Ragga Twins aka Flinty Badman and Demon Rocker, hail from Hackney and originated as part of the Unity Sound System, operating under the name in 1989. They issued a number of singles in the early 1990s as well as the album Reggae Owes Me Money (1991) with production by Shut Up & Dance. Their music is and always has been a mixture of reggae, dancehall, jungle, drum and bass, ragga and hip hop.

The Ragga Twins' longest musical relationship is with Aquasky, a partnership that was first cemented in 2001 when the tracks "All in Check ft. CoGee" and "Loko" were written for Botchit & Scarper. Four months later the tracks "Coffee" and "Dem No No We" were recorded for drum and bass label Moving Shadow, and in 2002, the track "Dirty Entertainers" was recorded with Aquasky on their now defunct Sonix label. The following year a remix was created and white labels distributed but the single was never released due to Aquasky leaving their distribution deal with ST Holdings and moving to SRD.

In 2008 the Twins lent their vocals to the Backdraft single, "Rock the Mic". In 2010 they were featured on Mason and the Fraudster's track "U Appear". Flinty Badman & Deman Rocker appeared in the Plan B crime film Ill Manors in 2012. In 2008, Soul Jazz Records issued a compilation album of their early 1990 recordings (notably their collaborations with production team/label Shut Up and Dance) entitled Ragga Twins Step Out.

In 2017, the Twins are still working hard, touring around the world and recording new material.

Ragga Twins - we say thank you !!

Other Home Grown Icons we have featured include Denise Lewis, Idris Elba, Tippa Irie and numerous others.

might be divided into sun mirror, gentle colored sunglasses and particular purpose Sunglasses general (skiing, hiking, beach, etc . ) three categories, members on the public to choose according to their demands to buy sunglasses. Sunglasses contacts can be divided into three forms of polarized lenses, color upgraded lenses, photochromic lenses.
In the purchase involving ordinary sunglasses, the first declaration is the best lens color, dreary and green, brown, the type of the lens is too short, shallow color indicates the exact lens light resistance is simply not strong; secondly, check the good quality of lens, sunglasses located away from the eyes around half a meter, through the contact to observe objects, such as within linear distortion shows the very lens deformation, not to get. A good pair of sunglasses needs to be marked with "UV-100PROTCT10N" plus marked with the standard range, type, color, frame dimensions, quality level, manufacturer's name and even trade mark.
