Acclaimed producer / singer Ragz Originale returns today with a new track titled “No Doubt” featuring North West London rapper Knucks and Lagos-based musician, Lady Donli. “No Doubt” is a unique blend of futuristic R&B, alternative rap and effortlessly cool alté that forms into an atmospherically sexy bop. Ragz says, “It was a pleasure to have Knucks on here as well as Lady Donli all the way from Nigeria, it’s one of those songs that don’t make sense on paper, until you hear it! Nothing but BASS here…”
The surreal and slightly sinister video sees the three of them take matters into their own hands, Ragz explains, “In the video we work as an organisation who take care of issues, including human disposal”. With a touch of dark humour and a splash of sexy, this mini movie is another self-directed video from Ragz himself, he adds “Recently, out of necessity I’ve gotten the hang of directing my own videos… this will be my 5th one thus far. I just feel it’s a more transparent way to bring a vision to life. This video was inspired by a series of nightmares I’ve had throughout the last year. I should probably stop watching Fargo before bed haha”.
Since releasing his debut album Nature in 2018, the only way has been up for the Ivor Novello nominee who has consistently demonstrated his rare ability to make timeless music that’s uncompromised by current musical trends, yet feels easily accessible and sounds fresh with every listen.
At the start of 2021 he released his 7-track mixtape WOAH featuring Laura Groves, John Glacier and 24hoursav and has gone on to co-found the innovative Mini Kingz movement with Oscar #Worldpeace and BenjiFlow, a collective putting out some of the most refreshing and exciting music out right now. He released his hyper-focused txt ur x EP to acclaim which featured a stellar line-up of guest artists such as Sam Wise, Mansur Brown and ELIZA and has produced for likes of Skepta, FKA Twigs, SOPHIE and more. “No Doubt” marks a new chapter for the multi-hyphenate, watch this space for more from Ragz.
