If you’re reading this for the first time don't let the name Rapattack confuse or deceive you into thinking or believing that this is a rap-music based outfit. This certainly is not the case. 1988 saw an explosion into a new Acid-House SCENE and today House and Garage music has become a natural and integral part of the UK’s R'n'B club culture. A sudden rise in the popularity of UK Garage and House music during the mid 1990s also found Rapattack producing music and installing their sound system for what was at the time described as a "sexy weekend residency at Londons 'Gass Club' in Piccadilly".
Alongside the likes of Matt Jam Lamont (Tuff-Jam), DJ Micky Simms, and the Dreem Teem, Rapattack is highly regarded as one of the founder members of the U.K. House and Garage scene and continues to be associated with London’s ‘Twice as Nice’ and ‘Back to 95’ promotions. Well known and respected by most top Radio/Club DJ’s and held in high esteem by the likes of Trevor Nelson and the general ‘club-going’ public of today and yesteryear, Rapattack's ability to specialise in a variety of musical fields is unsurpassed. Whether it be Jazz-Funk, Soul, Boogie, R/B, Garage or simply Rapattack’s good old ‘Party Style’ (a surprise cross section of musical tastes) it is often said that “Nobody does it better”. With a personal and ever increasing collection library of over 60,000 vinyl records, have no doubts about our thorough and extensive knowledge as well as passion for Soul and Dance music.
Our expertise has often been called upon to supply research information and archive material for BBC & Channel 4 music based historic documentaries relating to British Club culture. DJ Grandmaster has also recently completed a Masters degree earning a distinction (in Youth and Community Work) at Brunel University where his academic papers and research were mostly based around issues surrounding 'Caribbean and ethnic minority culture in the UK'.
More recently Rapattack have been hosting community DJ workshop projects for London’s boroughs and are involved in music production having their own recording studio and a number of writer/producers, who collectively provide a showcase with celebrity guests at London’s Notting Hill Carnival every year.
Rapattack have become a legend throughout the music industry, known World-Wide by international soul artistes and musicians alike. Experience gained by years of radio presenting on community radio stations have been rewarded with guest slots on BBC London as well as mastermixing live for BBC 1Xtra urban music shows.
