South Rakkas Crew
D-Rakkas spent his youth as a charismatic, party-starting DJ (Rakkas
is in fact a local West Indian slang term for rockers music that he used to print on his DJ flyers to indicate his parties music policy). The concept for South Rakkas Crew first hatched, though, when he moved to his current home base in Orlando, Florida to manage Riprock n Alex G Ent., a company that, at the time, was a crucial part of N Syncs production team. There, D-Rakkas conceptualized SRC to satisfy his creative need to fuse his love for electronic music with Jamaican culture. D-Rakkas first album, Clappas, quickly proved a major island and European smash, earing SRC the moniker The founders of Electro-Dancehall. Jamaican and non-Jamaican audiences alike quickly grew to appreciate SRCs talent for fusing hook-laden song structure with sound-system destroying beats.
XLR8R recently praised South Rakkas for their boundary-pushing powers: indeed, these futuristic rhythm killers cant be held down to any one sound or style. SRC can flex from Beenie Man and Bounty Killer one moment, T-Pain the next and then on to the likes of M.I.A., Lily Allen, Beck, Duran Duran, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Shakira all of whom have been touched by South Rakkas edgy studio savvy. It is this same approach that has made international DJ D-Rakkas such a sought after talent for clubs and festivals all over the planet. He intelligently uses a mass of influences in his unique brand of Electro dance music production and seamlessly drops it in his sets: Electro, Dancehall, House, Moombahton, Trap, Dubstep, old school Hip Hop, Reggae, etc., etc.
When beat king Diplo put out South Rakkas Mad Again and The Mix Up EP on his Mad Decent label, the blogosphere proved unanimous in its praise: Prefix raved about Mix Ups production perfection. The Washington Post gave it an extremely rare A+ rating, while Thom Yorke was dropping the Boy 8-Bit mix of Mad Again during his guest deejaying on Gilles Petersons BBC radio show. Trip-hop titan Tricky chose SRC to remix his entire West Knowles Boy album, garnering rapturous press.
When it comes to knowing what smashes a dance, few production outfits can match South Rakkas Crew.
