Alright, another time we take our looks up to the far north, and feature Norways premier Dancehall-Sound by the name of Raggabalder Riddim Rebels who have Oslo and the rest of the country locked for nearly 10 years.

# Please introduce your Sound and all the members to the readers.

We are Raggabalder Riddim Rebels, representing for Nordland (North of Norway), but living in Oslo.

Jan Skii Skii (Steezy)  is the main mic man, but he also does some selecting.

DJ Drahpaa just joined the sound last year, and he lives in Trondheim, Norway’s 3rd biggest city. He is in charge of everything digital, and linking us up with the newest tunes etc. He’s a true soldier, and after doing so much work for us, we had to ask him to join us officically.

I’m Joddski, and am the main selecta. I’m also on the mic when needed, and when the vibe is right I perform some tunes. I’m now a solo artist with an album coming this fall, but I was also the MC in legendary Norwegian hiphop act Tungtvann.

We released 4 albums, 3 ep’s, a dvd, some mixtapes and a best of-set before breaking up in 2007.

Jan Skii Skii was my sidekick in this band. You can check my tunes @  www.myspace.com/joddski

# When was the founding of your Sound and since when do all of you djing?

We founded Raggabalder in 2001 after returning from Summerjam in Cologne with our bags full of 7 inches. I was never a dj, I’ve always been a rapper and a singer, so that’s when I started. The only reason for that was to hear the music I loved in the club. Jan Skii Skii had played some in Tromsø (up north) before joining Tungtvann. It was more the need to spread the vibes, than to dj.

# Can you describe which style your sound plays mostly?

Raggabalder was started out of the frustration of the lack of hardcore dancehall being played in Oslo, so that has always been the main focus. When Raggabalder started out the scene in Oslo was based mainly on rasta music and foundation, and what got us interested originally was the hardcore, slackness and badman tunes. We always strive to be up to the time with the selection and see it as our mission to spread the bashment vibes in Norway. Of course, I can also play everything from foundation to 80’s, and Jan Skii Skii likes the nu roots style a lot. We also see it as our duty to spread European reggae, and we like to help buss new artists from our region. If you download our latest mix “Knockin Like A Hammer Pon Ur Fukking Door”, we’ve included artists from Denmark, Sweden, Holland, UK, Poland and Germany. We’re not afraid to go a little bit eclectic either, as we never tried to sound like this or that sound. We’re proud of where we come from and let that reflect in our playing.

# Please tell me about the most important cornermarks in the sounds history, like clashes, the baddest dances, etc.

Well, many things come to mind. Of course being voted best Oslo club of the year in 05 was good. The club we won with at Living Room had many crazy sessions. Morgan Heritages sound system show was wicked as well, and selecting for Cutty Ranks..Playing Poland was a great experience too, and our stint at Blå in Oslo had some legendary nights. Man, Too Many sessions. Our latest mix “Knocking Like A Hammer Pin Ur Fukkin Door” was a highlight as well.

# Which plans do you have for your sound in the near future and what are the real longtime plans for it?

For now we’re laying a little bit low, since we’re focusing on the Joddski album that’s dropping in August. We’re still gonna do some sessions in Oslo and Nordland, and we’re going to Sweden to play again soon. After that we’re planning to drop a new mix before christmas, and we’re gonna start planning our 10 year anniversary for 2011, which is going to be huge! We’re also going to Jamaica for the first time this year. Other than that, we want to continue touring, and most definitely play more in the eastern parts of Europe. We already did Poland twice and Czech Republic three times, and we love the vibes!

# Which persons, sounds, artists have influenced you musicallywise?

The Germaica label was important when we started, picking up the Bitch riddim and realising pure dancehall was made in Europe. Of European acts, definitely Raggasonic from France was a huge influence in the mid 90’s. On a more local level, Gothenborg’s Axxion Pack Sound just came out when we started, and their early mixes was important for us at that time. Other than that we really strive to keep our own vibe, but there’s tons of people we look up to and respect. The first dancehall albums I bought was Papa San “Fire Inna Dancehall” and Shabba Ranks “As Raw As Ever”.

# What was the first dubplate you ever voiced, and do you still play it?

I believe that the first dub we voiced was with the swedish dancehall artist Jogi. He was one of the first artists we brought over to our club in Oslo, and he has since become a good friend. We actually play it every now and then still.

Thanks then Joddski, and good luck for the future!

Big up everytime.

KNOCKIN’ LIKE A HAMMER PON UR FUKKIN’ DOOR

DRUNK TILL WE STAGGERING

THESE ARE THE FUCKING DAYS

FOLKEMUSIKK

Heard that Worm really brought his A-Game.

A personal friend told me that Sentinel played very hype, but this time the italians seems not really into it. Bass O came with a lot of their anthems and had the crowd in a frenzy.

In DfD Elmar pointed out that fake Bass O “Jimmy Cliff” sung by Hopton James and played the Counteraction, but the massive ether don’t liked it or don’t understand the issue.

Anyways, Bass Odysseys win was fair and square.

Unfortunatly I don’t have no Pics yet.
