Self-described as “raw raggamuffin bizniz from a parallel dimension”, SKRS deliver eleven diamond-cut jewels born from a decades-long love of ragga jungle then sequenced into two mixtape-style A and B sides with accompanying digital-sliced tracks. Having melted minds and record players globally over the past several years, SKRS continue to thrill with their incendiary mutations of soundsystem-born musical exercises following incredible LPs on Bokeh Versions and Boomarm Nation. Throughout the proceedings of the RaggaPreservationSociety EP, SKRS lead an expedition through time, space and vibrational language like none has done before.

"These recordings were made at the unlikely convergence of London pirate radio transmissions, Filipino-Canadian mobile DJ crew gatherings and New-age music meditation communes. The sound palette may be familiar but the context and design are on some other sh*t. Previously known only in their own circles, peer-to-peer networks and Usenet newsgroups, we are now presenting them to a wider listening massive.”

Respected ethnomusicologist, Sipreano (Grammy-nominated producer/archivist behind Light in the Attic Record's Native North America and Jamaica to Toronto compilations) reports:

"We formed this project to archive and showcase works that widen our scope of understanding of this Ragga diaspora. Rather than a sterile preservation of established templates, the RaggaPreservationSociety aims at preservation-by-expansion; championing instead ragga jungle's intrinsic spirit of ghetto-futurism and back-a-yard innovation; simultaneously cultivating the roots while fostering new fruits.”
