The Beat


The Beat – New Music

The UK-based band The Beat is fronted by Ranking Roger and he is accompanied by his son Ranking Junior, AKA Matthew Murphy, a powerhouse MC. Their new single “Side to Side” features Ranking Junior taking the lead as well as co-writing the track with his dad Ranking Roger. The track was mixed by Dennis Bovell. “Side to Side” is taken from the album Bounce (released with DMF Records), the fourth album by first-generation 2 Tone, a crucial musical and cultural movement which is still as relevant today as it was over 30 years ago.
