Stylish, driven, uncompromising and unapologetic - the ragga/soul duo from London. When Michie One and Louchie Lou met at a Rebel MC gig, the musical landscape was from there hence fated to change. Irrevocably. Described by the Guardian newspaper as leading figures in causing 'Gyal Power' in dancehall to become recognised as a unique, layered and creative force. Furthermore, Heatwave's Gabriel wrote, when describing their influence, and the atmosphere kindled within their concerts and transferred to their fans, "It's often the women patrons who will make tunes hits," he says. "They're the powerful force in the dancehall." The sheer fluidity and joyful energy of their music has been described by Lady Chann as ''The beat of the drum signifies the heartbeat, and that's what we go by, that's what we do. Daggering, dancing, wi'ning, dropping it low, whatever.'' And, herein is perhaps what is most vitally penetrated. That, despite the far reaching and profound influence of the cultural and social principles which their music, their presence hammers home and demands of a world pained by lethargy, that their talent, creative prowess and inventiveness exists in a world of it's own.
The vinyl is in excellent condition, with minimal dust and no scratching. The box, although near perfect, has a tear on the front and a little scuffing at the corners.
