Biography

You can not talk Old Skool without mentioning Evenson Allen (MC) and Mark “Lipmaster” Mckee. Together they form the legendary Ratpack. Formed in the late 80’s out of the illegal warehouse scene of East London when they started running their Tripcity nights, they were booked to play at the early raves of Sundance, Biology, Raindance, Fantazia and Perception. Their unique sound and DJ style enhanced their reputation, leading them to be booked to play in Europe, Australia, USA and the Far East. As their DJ’ing career took off they dabbled with a few ideas in the studio and the result was the classic “Searchin’ For My Rizla”. According to rumour, they actually made no money what so ever from this single, probably the one they are most famous for!
As old skool becomes ever more popular with ageing ravers who preferred it “how it used to be” and a new generation of music lovers, Ratpack decided to start making new tunes, but in an old skool style. These new tunes now slip in as easily as any other true classic, sounding as if they should always have been there.

In 2001 they teamed up with Echobass to release a tune bassed on the theme to the BBC game show “The Weakest Link”, although the single version was very much a dodgy garage style number, there was also a hardcore mix that was actually a lot less cheesy than it sounds.

    Put on my raving shoes and I boarded a plane. Touched down in the land where the skies were blue, in the middle of the pouring rain. Everybody was happy, energy shining down on me. Yeeeah, I've got a first-class ticket been as good as a boy can be. I'm raving, I'm raving. I'm raving til' the sweat drops fall down off me. I'm raving, I'm raving. But do I really feel the way I feel?
