Rae & Christian

Bill Brewster, Big Issue, The, 2001

A PAIR OF bespectacled northerners sits opposite me. If you were to formulate a picture in your mind of what hip hop producers might look like, you wouldn't conjure the faces of Mark Rae and Steve Christian in a hurry. They don't say "nigga" and they don't say "bitch" (well, not to my face anyway). Bobby Womack, a collaborator on their new and very fine album, Sleepwalking, described them as looking "like a pair of fuckin' astrologers".
