Music and food just go together. You’re in a take-out spot waiting for your order.., music. In the corner store to grab a six pack and snacks.., music. Ragz and Unown capture that pairing and take you on an audio journey through a culinary world. Their first installment, “Pasta & Wings” is a concept project with a 90’s era hip-hop instrumental vibe that finds Unown handling the beat duties on the MPC and DJ Ragz cutting up on the turntables.
DJ Ragz is a world class DJ and turntablist. While he’s well known for his battle appearances (DMC, Scribble Jam, Scion, Coast 2 Coast, etc.), he’s also known as a member of the hip-hop group Jazz Addixx and the co-creator of the Bare Bones break record series. Ragz most recently released the crate digging mixtape titled “Inside the Crates” in 2017.
Unown is a producer, engineer, and DJ currently traveling the world and rocking stages on the MPC as part of Oddissee’s band Good Company. Also known as a member of Jazz Addixx, When he’s not traveling he’s either holed up in the studio working on tracks or dj’ing in the DC area.
Note: There’s no obscenities so all audio can be played in your grandma’s kitchen without the fear of her slapping you with a wooden spoon.
